Starting tomorrow through to the 24 January 2020 we would like to ask for your support: Are you a parent/carer of a child/young person with special educational needs or disabilities? Go to for a survey, open meeting dates and more about our services. If you are on Twitter @Ofstednews and @CareQualityComm want to hear from you and your child during our inspection.

Super Praise for our Y3/4 Classes

Today Mrs Wilkinson received an e-mail from Durham Museums praising the Y3/4 children for their behaviour during their last two school visits. We are all incredibly proud of the children who took part. Below is a copy of the message from Dan from Durham Museums Education Team. 


I’d just like to send a message to thank the staff and students that recently visited the Oriental Museum on a visit to learn about Ancient Egypt. Having already worked with many of the children at Palace Green Library on a Stone Age workshop it was fantastic to work with them again - on both visits the children were incredibly enthusiastic, polite and a pleasure to work with. I’m sure members of the team will be fighting over any visits that you might book with us in the future!

Thanks for a wonderful day,

Dan (and the rest of the team!)"


Already some of the children have gone back to the Oriental Museum with their families to show them the Mummies. Maicey was telling us yesterday about the dragon there, which we did not see during our visit. Often during the weekend you can take part in craft activities there. More information can be found on their website.
