This has been a particular problem in residential areas&nbsp;such as Coronation Road and West Street where cars are being &nbsp;parked on double yellow lines and on pavements. This is&nbsp;restricting access for local residents and for pedestrians trying to use the footways. Whilst I fully appreciate the difficulty some parents are having with parking restrictions, please can i ask that families who drive to school take extra care to ensure that they park safely. I would hate for there to be any accidents resulting from this situation.&nbsp;</p> <p>In order to help with parking places for school, governor Gary Wilson&nbsp;continues to be in contact with the local council to see if we can improve the situation in any way. Please get in contact with the school office if you are able to help with this matter. Thank you</p> http://hassellschool.org/images/news/car_parking_2.jpgWed, 25 May 2016 21:15:15 GMTSAT's 2016http://hassellschool.org/news/latest/2016-05-12-sat-s-2016http://hassellschool.org/news/latest/2016-05-12-sat-s-2016<p>I would like to let parents know that we are incredibly proud of the super&nbsp;attitudes, hard work and effort that year 6 have put into their SATs exams this week. The changes to the curriculum have meant that there have been significant increases to the level of difficulty in some papers. Despite this, our year 6 children have tackled the tests with great positivity and remained focussed all week.</p> <p>Year 2 children are sitting their SATs next week (16th May) and I am sure that they will be equally successful in their effort and attitude.</p> <p>I would also&nbsp;like to take this opportunity to thank&nbsp;families for all your help and support with homework, extra practise and revision activities that&nbsp;the children have been completing.</p> http://hassellschool.org/images/news/SATs.jpgThu, 12 May 2016 21:22:03 GMTSwimming team win the Cuphttp://hassellschool.org/news/latest/2016-04-25-swimming-team-win-the-cuphttp://hassellschool.org/news/latest/2016-04-25-swimming-team-win-the-cup<p>On Monday 25th April, 18 children from year 5 and 6 attended the Newcastle Schools Swimming Gala at Newcastle Under Lyme School.

Initially, I sent out a letter to all parents asking them to be considerate in the way they drove and parked, and to adhere to some basic guidelines to make the dreaded drop off and pick up a little safer.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">However, it was recognised that this approach was not necessarily a long term solution to the problem. As such, I contacted Newcastle Borough Council to see if they could help and after three months of pestering and complaining, I finally got a meeting with Joanne Halliday at the Civic Offices.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">I was afforded the opportunity to discuss the concerns parents had and make suggestions in how we could work in partnership to reduce the parking issues and improve child safety. Cutting a long story short, Joanne agreed to look into the possibility of increasing the number of &lsquo;parking passes&rsquo; available to parents; perhaps providing additional parking spaces at the Windsor Street car park (near to the school) and the Hassell Street car park (slightly further up the road near to West Street).</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">There is no guarantee that this offer will materialise, but I remain hopeful.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">Attached below is the initial response following the meeting.
