Mr Steve Gibson
Josephine Butler Primary Campus are delighted to have been awarded The Modeshift Stars Bronze Award.
Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.
The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people.
The Bronze Award is for schools that that demonstrate a commitment to promoting sustainable transport by conducting an annual survey, identifying travel issues and solutions and delivering a range of travel initiatives. Our children have enjoyed taking part in ‘The Big Pedal’, Walk to School, Bikeability and looking at safer parking. We trialled a Walking bus and even did a plan of @park and Walk’.
It is with regret that the Beauty and the Beast rehearsal scheduled for this Sunday 4th March has been cancelled due to the severity of the weather.
Children can practice at home by clicking on the link below. There are practise tracks and a copy of the script. If this does not work, students can practise singing their parts along to YouTube videos. Please thank your child for all their hard work so far – there are a lot of lines to learn and they have all done very well!
Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Head of Music Development

At the Academy, we love to hear about successful students:
Dear Mr Day
My daughter attends The Northumberland Church Of England Academy and she is a member of the NCEA Cadet Force and cadet band within the school. She marched in the parades over the weekend as the bands bass drummer and she is currently learning the side drum too.
I was privileged to be able to attend the remembrance parades at the weekend and the lovely service the cadets performed at St Mary’s Church in Morpeth. Proud does not even come close to how I felt seeing the cadets march together and seeing the private service they held at St Mary’s Church where the pipers played and all the cadets lit candles for all the lost Polish/ Belgium soldiers.
My daughter is a changed young lady since joining the cadets. She is a lot more focused now and her school work and her recent school report was outstanding and I believe that this is down to the help, support and inspiration she gains from the cadets. She has been on a lot of weekends away with the cadet force and has learned a lot of new skills. She is currently working towards the silver award for her Duke of Edinburgh award.
This email is mainly to thank the school and cadets for giving our children this fantastic opportunity.
Year 10 Parent
As part of our programme for Year 11 students, we are once again organising special revision sessions during the Easter holidays.
The focus of these sessions will be to support students and to help them achieve the best possible grade in the forthcoming examinations.
We feel that this is an ideal opportunity for many of our students to gain more practice in examination technique, embed knowledge and benefit from extra support to build confidence.
