Did you spot our books in Cogito Bookshop window this week? Our children wrote stories based on tales by the Nordic writer Hans Christian Anderson.
Many thanks to all the children and their parents who came to school on a sunny Saturday to help give the school a spring clean.
A meeting is being held this Saturday 17th March at the Mart in Hexham regarding the consultation paper proposal suggesting closure of our school. Opening times are 10am - 3pm. The BBC will be attending to conduct interviews and have requested all parents who would like the opportunity to voice their opinion to arrive at 9.30am.
Your School needs you!

This will lead you through to entering your details and adding you to our already long list, it only takes 5 minutes of your time.
Thank you again for the constant support.
Thank you to everyone for their co-operation today. As the snow was forecast to return mid-afternoon we felt that it was in the interest of everyone's safety to close the school early.
We'll make a decision as early as possible tomorrow morning and inform parents using the school website if we're open or via the Emergency Closure Procedure/NCC website if we're closed.
Please visit the 'school closure' section of the website for the emergency school closure procedure and be familiar with who you are responsible for contacting to ensure the procedure works efficiently.
Thank you to everyone who attended our School meeting last Thursday evening regarding the recent Consultation paper proposal. Please remember we still need YOUR responses completed and forwarded to County Council. These can be collected and returned to the main office or completed online http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/Education/Schools/Consultations.aspx
