Information about 2018/19 School Year

6th July 2018

In your child’s book bag today you will find a pack of information about the term dates for Throckley Primary for next academic year.  Documents enclosed include the following:

  • Colour calendar with the term dates - please use this calendar instead of the one published by Newcastle City Council.
  • Dates for your diary list - please note that all of these dates will be in Parent App in September.  Parent App will send you notifications which will replace the text reminders that we currently send out.  It is very important that you are registered with Parent App - please speak to the Office if you need help with registration.
  • Information sheet on Legal Sanctions for Non Attendance.
  • All of these documents will be published in the ‘Information’ section of the website.

We have again planned two of our Teacher Training Days as part of the May Half Term.  We hope that grouping these two training days together will help our families to find holiday deals during this week.  We would be grateful if you would make use of this week and these days when planning your family  holidays next year.  We will be adhering to this guidance and issuing fines in line with recommendations set out by DfE and Local Authority policies regarding term time holidays.    

If your child will be in Year 1, Year 2 or Year 6 next year, you need to be aware of the dates for statutory national assessments.  Children must be in school during these assessment weeks.  Please see the  calendar and dates for your diary document for further information.
