Winner announced

Sonni names the newsletter ‘LIGHThouse’

Sonni received an Amazon voucher on Thursday as his prize for winning the competition to name the Trust newsletter.  The winning name was chosen by Mr Hardie, who visited Sonni at his primary campus, Thomas Bewick.   Sonni’s winning entry of ‘LIGHThouse’ shone out.  Well done, Sonni!

The newsletter is published monthly on our website.

Parent/carer communication survey

We are very keen to improve the way that we communicate with Parents and Carers at Northumberland Church of England Academy Trust. We would appreciate if you would complete our survey, which should take less than five minutes. Your answers will be used to review our communications strategy and improve the effectiveness of home-school communications.

The survey will be open until 12.00pm on Friday 16th November

 

School Names

We are delighted to announce that, following our successful application to form a Multi-Academy Trust, the three current phases of the Northumberland Church of England Academy will be working under their new school names from September 2018.
These new names celebrate how the Academy was originally formed, and will be:
  • NCEA Castle School (formerly The Centre)
  • NCEA Bishop’s Primary School (formerly NCEA Primary)
  • NCEA Duke’s Secondary School (formerly NCEA Secondary)

All current campus names will remain the same, and all schools stay as part of the Northumberland Church of England Academy Trust.

Parents and carers were invited to come and meet Governors and executive leaders last week to hear and ask questions about these changes, and children are being informed currently.  We will officially launch the new names in September, coinciding with a special visit from the Archbishop of York.

Parents and carers should be aware that there will be no immediate changes to any uniform, as each school still remains part of the Northumberland Church of England Academy Trust.  Any potential future changes will be consulted on and would be introduced at the start of an academic year to minimise any costs to families.

Governors and senior staff would like to let you know about the latest developments at the Academy.

Please come along on Monday, 9 July at 6pm in the Main Hall at the Josephine Butler Campus.
