  • Friday 19 July 2019 St Cuthbert's School Newsletter 19th July 2019 End of school year We have reached the end of another school year and it is hard to believe how quickly it has flown by. Both schools have had successful years in many fields – sports, music, drama, personal achievements academically both in and out of school. We are very proud of the children and staff in our Federation who continue to ‘learn and grow together’. To our Year 6 children we wish you every success in the future. You will always be part of our family and will always be welcome in our schools.

  • Friday 3 May 2019 St Cuthbert's Newsletter 3rd May 2019 Welcome back to the Summer term - a rather odd first half with only 4 weeks and May Day bank holiday before the final half term of the year. It has gone so quickly! Our Year 2 and 6 children are busily preparing for SATS with KS1 taking theirs during the month of May and the Year 6 children WB 13th May. We want our children to be well prepared and to feel confident about accessing the test without any unnecessary pressure or anxiety. We want the children to know that we are proud of their achievements and successes in all aspects of their development, not just reading, writing, maths and grammar. Knowing how to use a fronted adverbial is not as important as being a kind, generous, well-rounded person.
