Stop Press

31 January 2014

As we have had an incredible number of enrolments at school since December, we have now introduced a new class for 2014.

This means that the class lists sent home in December 2013 have now had to change.

Instead of children going to classrooms on Moday 3 Feb, there will an assembly in the Hall at 8:55am and the new class lists will then be shared.  Parents are welcome to attend.

At this assembly we will also be introducing two new teachers for the 2014 year.

This is very exciting and instead of looking at some classes having 32 students, they will have 26.  Over the whole school to lower class numbers will allow for better teaching and learning outcomes for all.



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.

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.
