13th May 2019 – Community Clothing Scheme

One of our parents  will be going to Community School Clothing Scheme, Cobalt Business Park next Friday 17th May with various donations. She is happy to take the contents of our Lost Property Box. 
This is a wonderful charity run by volunteers with hearts of gold. It was started up by Freema Soul Chamber, who saw the need to try to end uniform poverty. People donate their pre-loved school uniforms/ or new / shoes/ PE kits, Games kits, football boots etc and these are available free of charge to anyone who wants / needs it. This started in her back bedroom for the local schools around Cramlington and then expanded rapidly over the past two years and now they have a huge base at Cobalt Business Park. They have expanded into clothing and shoes for babies, children, men and women. They charge very minimal prices for each item- cheaper than charity shops now. 20p, 50p, £1.00, £2.00. 
They have an extensive Nursery Department which stocks almost everything you need for a baby equipment wise and loans all this out to anyone who has a need free of charge. 
 Plus they also take furniture and homeware for people who are fleeing domestic violence and abuse. This is usually a referral service, but at the discretion of the team. There really isn’t much they don’t take. As long as someone else could use it, then the Scheme will take it. 
It would be wonderful if our school got on board and supported this wonderful charity.  Especially with the end of the school year approaching. 

Look up on their Facebook page for more information or phone Reception for more information. ‘Community School Clothing Scheme’

We are very sorry to lose Mrs Leja at the end of the Spring term. We wish her well in her future career and thank her for her service to the school.

Possible Scam

Please find the below information we have received from Belsay Primary.

One of our community has been asked via a telephone call to make a donation to ‘the police, care in the community and Belsay School’ with a suggested donation of £80-£90. This is not a legitimate call and none of the mentioned bodies would make any request in this way. If you are targeted in this way, please inform Northumbria Police via 101 with as much detail as possible; reference number is 345 24.1.19

Advice from Public Health England.

At this time of year, it is not uncommon for viruses which cause vomiting and diarrhoea to circulate among children (for example norovirus, also known as the ‘winter vomiting bug’). If your child develops diarrhoea and or vomiting, it is important that they stay off school until 48 hours after they last vomited or passed diarrhoea to avoid the spread of further infection. As always, please contact your GP or NHS 111 if you are concerned or need further advice on how to manage an illness.
