All busses have just informed us they are running. Take care on roads and especially in our car park. We will monitor weather all day and keep parents informed should the situation change.
We are monitoring the weather and will inform you of changes to the school day, should we or the bus companies make any, via this site and the school comms text system.
We would appreciate if you would do not ring school for updates.
Having driven from Sunderland the main roads are clear and the road from Wylam is okay. Most bus companies contacted so far are making pick ups however, there will be NO NIGHTINGDALE COACH COLLECTIONS. THESE ROUTES ARE THE STOCKSFIELD VIA OVINGTON AND FROM WHEELBIRKS/HINDLEY ROUTES. Please make alternative arrangements.
As I await staff numbers to make sure we are safe to open I am aware you need to plan for today. Can you therefore assume the school will be open today. Please take care…wrap up warm… and keep checking for further updates.
On behalf of all the Staff and Governors I’d like to wish you a very Happy New Year.
School opens for students on Tuesday 9th January. If you need to contact us before then all staff will be back and preparing for the year ahead from Monday the 8th January.
We all look forward to an amazing year ahead.
On behalf of all the Children, Staff and Governors here at OMS may I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
School re opens on Monday 8th January for a teacher training day with students returning on Tuesday 9th January.
After a very busy day and lots of fun at the Zoo… It’s looking like your little monkeys will be arriving in school in about 30 minutes (6.20pm)
Dear Parents /Carers
Tynedale Community Learning Trust update
We would like to give you an update about the progress of our application to form our proposed Tynedale Community Learning Trust MAT. The Regional Schools Commissioners’ Headteacher Board met on 14 December and stated that they are deferring a decision on the applications of all schools in our proposed Tynedale Community Learning Trust MAT until after the results of the ‘Education in the West of Northumberland’ consultation are known.
Naturally we are disappointed with this deferral but we remain convinced that our vision for the future and our MAT proposal is in the best interests of all our learners. We are determined to ensure that we can achieve ’excellence together’ and will continue to work closely together as a group of schools until such a time where our application can be reconsidered.
We wish everyone a good Christmas break and a happy New Year and thank you for your continued support.
The coach is due to arrive now at 1215 pm
