South Tyneside Council & South Tyneside CCG are pleased to announce a new range of training for parents and carers of children and young people with SEND.
Based on what parents have told us, we have pulled together a training programme covering a range of topics including SEND Law, Makaton, Challenging Behaviour and much more. The training programme will run for the next 12 months with lots of opportunities for parents to choose the training that’s of most interest to them. All courses are free to join.
We are now taking bookings for the first event: a series of training on SEND Law. These sessions will be delivered by Claire Jackson of SENETA (Special Educational Needs Expert Training & Advocacy). Click the link below to find out more about the sessions and book your space.
Information on all future courses will appear over the coming weeks

Today Year 6 are taking part in an online quiz organised by ICT in Schools, South Tyneside. They will be pitting their wits against other schools in South Tyneside to see who knows more about keeping safe online. This year the theme for the day is about reliability, can we trust everything we see in the online world? Their skills will be tested to see if they can spot fake news stories and photographs.

Fitness factor challenges for the 6th and 7th February were to challenge someone with how many times you can throw a ball up, clap once and catch it in 60 seconds and also to make up a new game. Here, Sophie and her sister are playing a ‘the floor is lava obstacle course game’ they developed.
5LR enjoyed completing a range of tasks during Children’s Mental Health Week at home as well as in school – well done everyone!
As part of Children’s Mental Health week, we expressed ourselves in a variety of ways. We thought about how ‘amazing’ we all are and, after completing some sentences, we decorated the word. After reading the story of ‘Beautiful Oops’, we discussed how mistakes are a good thing as they help us learn. We changed an ‘oops’ into something beautiful. We also thought about how emotions could be represented on masks and faces. We had a great week exploring how to express ourselves!
As part of our work in Children’s Mental Health week, we thought about doodling ‘Zen patterns’ and how this form of expression could help us with our emotions. We found it really relaxing, listening to some classical music whilst doodling.
When we had finished our doodles, we chose two of them which we liked the best and used printing ink and polystyrene tiles to print an alternating pattern. It was great fun and we were really proud of our work!
In year 4 we have been studying an artist called Sokari Douglas Camp. She is a sculptor and her work is influenced by her Nigerian background. Many of her pieces are made from welding materials and reused waste materials.
