Susan’s latest update

Photographs for prospectus

Many thanks to everyone who came along to our photo-shoot for our new prospectus. It was sunny day and the children were perfect models! We have had some photographs enlarged onto canvas for our school as well as saving some for our new promotional materials.

Parents and carers who have accepted places for reception should be receiving a pack of information leaflets next week, this site please let us know if you do not.

Refurbishment of Benwell Nature Park

The builders are starting refurbishment work at the Nature Park soon and we hope to have it handed over to us later in August. We would welcome any parents with spare time over the summer to come and help build furniture or organise resources. Please let us know if you can spare any time at all.



You can buy uniform from us at Benwell Nature Park from Tuesday 27th August, seek or order online here:

There is an order form in each parent pack we’ll be sending out, please return and we will organise uniform for you. Children in receipt of Pupil Premium will be provided with uniform free of charge, but please remember to complete the form so that we can have the correct sizes available.

An apology

I am sorry to say that the sweatshirts are £6.50 with an embroidered logo (not £3 as I originally thought). We will review our suppliers annually so that we can offer best value to parents.


Can I remind parents that children will need wellies for outside use (to be left at the Nature Park) and to request that parents consider buying warm and sturdy boots for outside use in the woods. (We have purchased waterproofs and coats but are struggling to find good quality boots at the moment.)

Meet the teachers and have a look around

Finally, just to remind everyone we will be at Benwell Nature Park from Tuesday 27th August if anyone would like to meet the staff or have a look around the accommodation. Everyone is welcome but if you send us an email we will be expecting you!

I am going on holiday at the end of next week so if you have any questions could you please email and Carol or Leigh will be happy to help.

Yours, Susan Percy
