Walk To School Week

The Northern Federation is supporting ‘Walk To School Week’, Monday 21st to Friday 25th May 2018. This is a great opportunity to walk with your child and help them learn about road safety and the local environment. We realise some parents do not live that close to the school, please remember you can always ‘park and stride’, there is further information and maps on our website.

World Book Week

We have had a wonderful week in Oz ! We have learnt the story and all about the characters.  We also really enjoyed a visit from a storyteller, bedtime and breakfast stories and of course our Dressing-up day.

Take a look at our gallery for some highlights of our week.

Service Families

Service Families

The Department for Education introduced the Service Pupil Premium in April 2011 in recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face.

Schools which have service children can receive additional funding to help support them, particularly at times of mobility or deployment.

At Northern Schools one of the ways in which we use this funding is to provide emotional literacy support (ELSA) for individuals and groups of children, and a special ‘Forces Club’.

If you believe that you qualify as a ‘service family’, and we may not be aware, please let the school office know as this additional funding really does make a difference to our children.
