We have also have a Facebook account Parents and Carers of Tithe Barn Primary School where we share information and events that have occurred in school.

Fond Farewell

Today was a very sad day for everyone at Tithe Barn as we celebrated Bob’s time at Tithe Barn. The children sang a special thank you song. We shared memories of Bob’s time at school and presented him with cake, cards and a wonderful collection.

We are extremely grateful for everything Bob has done for our school so we presented him with the key to our school. We have invited Bob back to join us for some special occasions but if you’d like to visit him, he will be supervising the road outside Heaton’s Library.

Tithe Barn Times – 27th September 2019

Busy Term

The children have all been working very hard and our new Reception children have settled into life at Tithe Barn.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful grandparents who joined Year 1 recently to talk about their childhood and answer the children’s questions.

I would also like to thank our wonderful volunteers who attended our Safeguarding training this week and are helping to ensure that we keep all our children safe.

We are looking forward to our Flower Festival and our Harvest Festival and hope that you can join us for our celebrations.

Thank you for your continued support

Katherine Muncaster.

Sporting Adventures

We were delighted to have Kiera Byland return to school last Friday to receive a fantastic cheque for £904.45 to support her trip to compete in the next Special Olympics. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped to raise the funds through our sponsored cycle last term.

We also presented Kiera with Martin the Monkey who is one of our characters from our Learning Jungle. Martin’s learning power is to continuous improve and we felt that this reflected Kiera’s amazing attitude to life.

We are looking forward to continuing to work in partnership with Kiera. She has now become our first Sporting Ambassador and will continue to be an inspiration for all of us.
