Dear Parent/ Carer

We are really looking forward to welcoming Year 10 pupils back next week. Your son/daughter has been placed in specified day bubble (see text). This means that he/she will only attend school each Monday, from 9.30 – 12.30. This bubble will not change. Pupils should arrive no earlier than 9.20.

Pupils must keep to 2-metre social distancing and observe good hygiene etiquette. Please do not sent your child to school if they are feeling unwell. If your child is going to be absent, please let us know. Pupils should observe social distancing before arriving at school and must not stand in groups.

Pupils should wear sensible sports clothing/PE kit. Pupils must not bring a bag to school. Pupils can bring a water bottle. We will provide pens and pencils.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone next week.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Stay safe and take care.



If the school is able to provide some in-school provision for pupils in Year 10 this half term, could you please fill in the form below if you intend to take up this provision.

Please note that children will not be able to attend school if the form has not been filled in because it contains essential information for your child’s health and safety.

The information you provide will be secure, in line with GDPR.

Your support in providing this information is greatly appreciated.

Stay safe and take care.

Home Study Timetable 29-4-20

To make home learning easier, we have created a weekly timetable for pupils to follow. However, we do realise these are very challenging times and acknowledge that family circumstances are different. It is not a timetable that has to be rigidly followed like the one we have in school.  Some children may find it difficult to work for the allocated time and some may want to do a little bit more. Although we would encourage pupils to try and finish the tasks that have been set, we do understand if work is not always done or complete.

Pupils should check emails and Teams for instructions on a daily basis and aim to complete the tasks set. There will be some work that needs to be sent back to the teacher. 

To avoid all emails/instructions being sent on a Monday morning, teachers will send instructions on the day the subject first appears on the timetable. This should help with prioritising work. 

Examples of excellent work will feature in our ‘Work of the Week’ gallery on Facebook each Friday. 

Home Study Timetable


The school is closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Pre-ordered packed lunches can still be collected from Hebburn Lakes on both days.

We will be open again on Tuesday 14 April at 8.00am.
We urge everyone to stay at home this weekend to protect the NHS and save lives.

Wishing all families a safe weekend.

Dear Parent/Carer
Following the announcement on Saturday evening, we will be launching the government’s free school meals voucher scheme today.
What happens?
You will receive an email to the address we have on our management information system. Please check junk and spam folders. The email should take you through the steps you need to follow to access your £15 voucher and the supermarkets available.
When will I get my vouchers?
We have set up the system to send out vouchers on the following dates:
Tuesday 7th April
Tuesday 14th April
Tuesday 21st April
Tuesday 28th April
Tuesday 5th May
Tuesday 12th May
There will be further dates published when we have a better understanding of how long the voucher scheme will be required, but the government has said that it will continue for as long as schools remain closed. Please note that we have no indication of when the school will re-open. We’ve just set the dates above in a 6-week block.
What will I get?
You will receive one voucher per family.
1 child = £15
2 children = £30
3 children = £45
4 children = £60
5 children = £75
We still do not have all email addresses. If you have not contacted the school, could you please email office@hebburn.net with your details or call us on 0191 4833199 between 9.00am and 10.00am by Thursday 9th April.
There may be some teething problems during the set up period because we have not used this system before and schools across the country. I ask in advance that parents work with us and remain patient should we encounter any issues. We are aiming to roll out the scheme as quickly as possible.
My thanks for your continued support.
Due to the number of vouchers being processed across the country, we are aware that there is a delay in people receiving emails nationally. This is an issue with the government’s provider; they hope to have the issue resolved as soon as possible.
We would advise that parents wait, rather than contact them directly because there is a call charge.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
