Welcome Back

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. We welcome your children back to Eskdale Academy for what we are hoping is another outstanding school year.

School results are at an all - time high in both KS1 and KS2. Our highest KS2 SATS results ever. A remarkable achievement from the pupils and dedicated staff.

Eskdale Academy truly looks better than ever! I encourage all of you to attend the KS welcome meetings (dates to be given out on team newsletters next week) where you will find out important information about the Autumn term for your child/ren.

Eskdale Academy takes great pride in creating an educational atmosphere where students can learn in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to engage in a lifelong love of learning. As we focus on student achievement we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. During the upcoming school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. Ways to support and increase your child’s academic success include:

  • Make attendance a PRIORITY including limiting lateness and absences

  • Check Planners for homework

  • Communicate often with your child’s class teacher

  • Read with your child at least 20 minutes a day

  • Limit television and social media, encourage outside play

  • Review the school day with your child

The staff and I are looking forward to an educationally rewarding school year with you and your children. The PACT group are always looking for volunteers to help with charity events, school fayres etc.

Thank you for your continued support.

Ms Killeen
