16/5/16 IMPORTANT NOTICE - The Margaret Mahy Playground visit on Monday 16 May is on! Teachers met at 8am today, discussed the weather, including looking at the most recent information for the day on Metservice.com. Parents, if you have indicated you're available for parent help, be at the Sockburn School hall at 9am for a briefing regarding the trip safety procedures. These were sent home with your child on Friday for you to look at over the weekend so please bring them to the meeting today. 


Welcome to the Sockburn School website - one which we hope will provide our growing school community with ongoing information about happenings in our happy, vibrant school! We see this website as a Communication Centre and as such want to see it used as actively as possible. Our webpages are continuing to evolve and we hope that you will enjoy being able to access information about our activities. 

You can sign on to our mailing list and this will give you a reminder when a new newsletter goes to the page.   Also you can follow us on Facebook - Sockburn School

The Events Calendar will enable you to diary dates as they are set for the rest of the year.

Board of Trustees notices will be added in the relevant page as they are required. These are to inform both the community and Board members of any changes or happenings which are particular to Board matters.

When you visit the staff through the Our People page you can catch up with what teachers and their classes are doing. Staff have their own personal page to communicate with parents and children and these will be developed over time as the teachers become familiar with this form of communication. Eventually, you'll find all sorts of information such as homework, notices and even hyperlinks to other websites. We value feedback, so please let us know what you would like to see.

There is an email link for each teacher, so if you would like to get in touch that way, please feel free.

If you bookmark our Homepage, you will be able to keep up with the action as it happens.

Looking for any Closures or the latest important school information - check out the News and Events, Notice Board, or on Facebook.
