Ravenswood Primary School

Week beginning 16th November 2020

The word for this week’s blog is “Wow!”

As you all know, the children have been charging round the yard all week taking part in a hugely successful Cancer Run in aid of North East Children’s Cancer Research (NECCR). The children were brilliant and really determined to complete their distances and raise some money.

I am delighted to announce that thanks to your amazing generosity, we have raised


In these very difficult times, this is an astounding amount of money and I know that NECCR are going to be so grateful.

Thanks to everyone for taking part.



While all of this exercise was happening, I have been meeting with all of the teachers to discuss the progress of the children so far this year. This is always a great week. It is lovely to find out about them all and to celebrate their learning.

We also had School Council elections this week. Well done to all of the children who stood for election and congratulations to our new councillors. I met with them all on Wednesday to give them their badges and I have to say, they are a very impressive group of young people. I look forward to working with them this year.
