At Roseberry, we love to hear the views of parents and carers. As well as our conversations with you throughout the year, we also like to gather your views through an annual survey. Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our most recent survey – I shall share the results of this with you very soon.

Along with a detailed school self evaluation carried out by staff and governors, the results of the survey will be used to inform school development projects for next year, address issues that may concern you, and celebrate the great things that we do well!Please remember that we are always happy to listen to your views – our door is open!

Thank you for your time.

An exciting appointment!

June 20th, 2017

I am delighted to inform you that, following interviews today, we have successfully appointed Mr Gardner as our new Site Manager from 4th September. He will work alongside Mr Fields during part of the summer term so that Mr Fields can pass on his knowledge of our super school. Mr Gardner has an extensive skills set that I know he will put to good use every day! Welcome to our school family, Mr Gardner!

Our amazing School Council!

June 20th, 2017

Recently, following Felicity’s visit to the School Council to talk about raising money for children less fortunate than ourselves, our School Council decided that they would like to raise money for the children of Roseberry School in India. They decided that they’d like to hold a pyjama day, where children would pay £1 to come to school in their pyjamas!

They decided that they would need to advertise the event and that an assembly would be a great way to communicate their ideas to the whole school.

They set to work thinking about how they could make their assembly interesting.

Magda went home and wrote a fabulous script to show the difference between the lives of children in India compared with children in Great Ayton. The School Council met during break times and Magda directed her play. James was really caring when he jumped up onto the stage to help Molly read her script. The children worked together and supported one another without a grown up to guide them – it was lovely to watch!

Some members of the School Council decided to create a brilliant PowerPoint presentation, using the information and letters that Helen Jones shared with them when she visited to talk to them about the children in India. They practised presenting their slides each break time until they felt ready to perform.

Today, our amazing School Council delivered their assembly to the whole school. They did a brilliant job and now everyone in our school family understands the reason for our Friday pyjama day!

I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful, thoughtful and creative School Council. Well done, folks. I feel really proud of you!

Brilliant book sale!

June 17th, 2017

Yesterday, we continued to work on creating our new library – a job that Mrs Davies and Mr Murton have been busy doing in their spare time. Some of the books were a little old but we decided that rather than throwing them away, we’d sell them for 20p each. This would mean that children could buy cheap books and we’d have a little more money in our school fund. We raised £32.40 in 20 minutes! Can you work out how many books we sold?
