Leavers Video!

As promised, we have our Leavers Video ready for you to watch and enjoy.

Before you do though please know and remember how proud I, and the entire school, are of you.

We always knew that you were incredible and the way that you all handled a very uncertain time was inspiring.

You all have so much potential and your futures are so bright! Do yourselves proud and keep striving to be the best you can be.

I’ll leave you with the words of Mrs Jackson:

Dear Year 6,

I am picturing each and every one of you as I write this. I am so sorry that I did not get to share all of your Year 6 experience with you. However, even though I was not able to be at school, the Cragside staff team kept me updated on your achievements and your progress. 
You have all accomplished so much during your time at Cragside Primary School and the exciting thing is that this is only the beginning! Life will continue to be full of opportunities and adventures and new people and new places. Embrace life and all it offers up to you. 
Remember all we have taught you – not just the English, the maths and the science but the singing, the acting, the dancing , the laughing with friends and the warmth of our school family.When times get tough (and all lives get tough every now and then , as we’ve seen this year) remember to talk to someone, ask for help, listen to advice. It’s true that talking through a worry can half it.
Remember, above all, that you are unique, you are precious, and you have the power to have a huge impact on our world.
Leave us with confidence. Leave us with hope. Leave us knowing that you are loved.
I am proud of who you are.

Rebecca Jackson


Take care, remember we are always here for you and always know that you are amazing.

I’ll miss you all.

A very proud Mr Turner.

Hello everyone

I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend.

Our assembly this week is from Miss Howells.
