Important Announcment- School term dates 2016-17
We will break up for Christmas on Thursday 22nd of December and children will return Monday 9th of January.
This is different to the Newcastle School term dates.
Welcome from the Head teacher Mrs Debi Bailey.
Our school motto is “Together we make a difference.” and I am very proud to be the head teacher of such a vibrant, forward thinking school which truly believes this.
Walkergate Primary School is a true community primary school. Our aim is to make sure that every child does the best they possibly can. To achieve this, we work in partnership with all of our families and schools in the local community. We have the highest expectations of behaviour and work really hard to ensure our school is a safe, happy environment.
We are a unique primary school with a real history. There has been a school on this site since 1918. Walkergate Primary is lucky enough to have generations of families coming through which helps to create the real sense of community we have. Our school is the heart of community; to achieve this we work closely with our neighbours. We offer individual support to our families and will always go the extra mile.
We are so lucky to have a brand new building. In 2009 we moved into our new school on the site of the old school. We now have a school built for learning in 21st Century. We have a set of core VALUES which we promote and celebrate. They are: Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. We believe that these values are what we all need to live by to be responsible citizens.
What makes us special?
We have an active student voice, RUMAD– curriculum, extended schools agenda, Every Child Matters focus and a huge range of before, during and after school enrichment opportunities. Our school competes in a wide range of sporting events and we promote a healthy active lifestyle. We operate a Restorative practice approach to behaviour management, where we encourage and support everyone to take responsibility for their own learning. As part of our aim to ensure everyone meets their full potential, we identify a gift, talent or interest for every child in school and we aim to provide opportunities to develop this.
We believe that together we make a difference.
School Uniform for September – URGENT ACTION NEEDED
Please be aware that the last day for ordering school uniform for September on free delivery to school is Friday 17th June 2016. This needs to be ordered on-line via the school website under the parent heading. You can then have the uniform delivered to school free of charge before we break up for the Summer. Any orders after that but before 1st August can be delivered to your home address in time for September but you will have to pay a delivery charge. After that there is no guarantee that you uniform will arrive ready for September. Please remember that school only holds a very limited stock of uniform which is intended for in year admits. Therefore we will be unable to provide uniform at the beginning of September.
