My name is Jennie Lee and I work full-time as a Primary school teacher. I have lived in Teesdale all of my life and have two young children. I am also a part-time Taekwondo Instructor and have visited South Korea three times both to learn Taekwondo and teach English. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my partner and our two children at home looking after our sheep, hens and geese.
The school is having an Ofsted Inspection on Tuesday 26th February 2019. Attached below is a Parent Guide to the Inspection and also a Parent Letter.
Ofsted are also keen to listen to the views of our Pupils, please see below.
Information for Pupils
Ofsted is inspecting your school, and would like to hear your views. You can do this by completing an online pupil questionnaire at the following link: https://ofsted.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Pupil/10059158
Your views are really important to us, and will help inspectors understand your experience of school. The questionnaire will close at 11am on 26 February 2019, to give the inspector time to look at the results. The questionnaires work in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer 11, and on mobiles and tablets when you copy and paste the link into the browser.
We do not ask for your name, so you will not be identified from the responses you make.
Please find below this weeks edition of ‘The Times’ newsletter.
We would like to remind you that Middleton-in-Teesdale Nursery & Primary School provides a school meal service offering hot, nutritionally balanced meals, freshly prepared and cooked on the school premises.
On return from the Summer break on 4th September 2018 school meals will be offered at £2.05 per day (a small increase of 5p per day) which represents excellent value compared to neighbouring authorities that charge on average £2.20 per meal.
The meals are produced in house by our own catering staff and offer a pre-ordered choice from 2 main courses and a dessert per day. Each meal is developed to ensure the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables is available while avoiding confectionary and artificially-sweetened drinks, with limits on the fat, salt and sugar content in each meal.
The good news is that if your child or children attends an infant school or infant classes from Reception to Year 2 then school meals will continue to be free to them.
So make sure your child gets the healthy option, the menus can be found on the school app or via our website using the following link:-
Please be advised that if you wish to change from school meals onto packed lunches this can be accommodated at the end of each half term, this is due to the administrative time it takes to change menus and the associated changes in purchasing food provisions.
Should you wish to change from school meals onto packed lunches or vice-versa, please could you inform the school office by Thursday 19th July 2018 at the very latest.
Don’t forget that if your child has a special dietary requirement (supported by a Medical Practitioner) then this can still be provided for.
Unfortunately, due to the bad weather we have had to close Middleton-in-Teesdale Primary School tomorrow, Friday 2nd March 2018. Hopefully the worse of the weather will pass over the weekend, however please check this app or our website for further information should the bad weather continue.
