Times Table Rockstars

Times Tables Rockstars will continue to be used in school to aid with times tables knowledge and recall. We know many children also use the TT Rockstars app at home. It is important that children use the latest versions of the app and website to ensure they receive the most secure, feature-rich and enjoyable experience of Times Tables Rock Stars.

Some of the versions are so far behind that they're missing out on key updates. If using the website at home, please visit to load the latest version in your device's browser.

You can also update the Times Tables Rock Stars app from the app store.

Dear Parents/ Carers 

Mrs. Shaw, our Assistant Headteacher and Nursery Manager is unfortunately on sick leave. I am sure you will join me in wishing her a speedy recovery. Mrs. Burnip will cover in her absence.


Many of you may know Mrs Burnip ( formerly Miss Lloyd ), she is one of our Senior Leaders and SEND leader and has experience of teaching in EYFS. Mrs. Burnip will be teaching in Nursery and provide leadership for both Nursery and reception classes.


Mr Kindley will be on paternity leave for the next 2 weeks. His leave was due to start at the beginning of term but he delayed it in order ensure the children in his class / year group benefitted from the most settled start to the school year possible. Mr Smith will be covering his class until he returns.

We are also excited to welcome a trainee teacher from Sunderland University who will be teaching the classes in Year 5 alongside Mr Kindley and Miss Dodds this term. I am sure you will make her feel most welcome.

Staffing Changes

Dear Parents / Carers I am wiring to advise you that Mrs Lawson and Mrs Williams will be covering Mrs Burnip teaching commitment in Year 3 until further notice.

Mrs Burnip is using her EYFS experience to support teaching in Nursery whilst our Nursery Manager is currently on sick leave.

Mrs Lawson is a qualified teacher and knows all the children in the year group as she has been working with them since term began in September. Many of you already know Mrs Williams who is deputy headteacher at Burnside. Both teachers will be available to support you as always with any queries you may have.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

This morning's coffee morning was AMAZING! THANK YOU My wonderful staff stayed after work yesterday afternoon to set up the hall for you. We put out the number of tables and chairs to accommodate the number of people we hoped might come. We were thrilled that we had to quickly almost double the number of tables to accommodate you all. Then the wonderful children arrived and performed beautifully for us all. We all enjoyed coffee and cakes and the atmosphere in the school hall was simply fab. I felt we had at last returned to how things used be.... and it felt good. The icing on the cake was that we made £550 for the charity.

Thank you everyone.
