Child Safety Week

As part of Child Safety Week, South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Board, in partnership with South Tyneside Council and multi-agency partners, is launching a campaign ‘Safe children – together we have got this’. This includes a series of 30 events running in Children’s Centres across South Tyneside to help promote child safety and accident prevention messages.

Accidents and injuries can occur in many areas of day-to-day life, from falls, road safety, pet safety, dangers with cooking and hot drinks, internal burns from batteries, accidental poisoning, and choking from blind cords, small toys or nappy sacks.

Accidents and injuries can be prevented.

Thank you Linda

On Friday we said goodbye to Linda who has worked at Marine Park for 23 years. Linda retired after many years of cooking and serving delicious meals at our school. We hope she enjoys her time in her garden.



An exciting project for Y5

Durham Cathedral visit

On Wednesday 14th March, year four took part in a celebration of singing with several other South Tyneside schools. The children have been learning a range of songs as part of the Durham Chorister’s Music Outreach Programme and were incredibly lucky to be able to perform them at the Cathedral. The children’s hard work certainly paid off and they sang beautifully. The setting for the performance was breath taking and the children loved the experience. They even made Mrs Gibson cry! A very big ‘well done’ to the whole class.
