Community

  • We have received 4 Love Northumberland Awards or runner up awards on the last 4 years. These awards reflect our community work such as litter picks, promoting sustainable travel and supporting initiatives that promote the local area such as creating a map of the area for local residents.
  • In school sessions - Working with parents and carers is an intrinsic part of our school philosophy, we aim for everyone in the school community to feel a significant part of our school and we aim to get out and work with the local community on a regular basis. Regular book looks allow pupils to share their work, progress and successes with parents/carers in a more meaningful way. What the parents say; "It's great to see what my child is doing in the classroom." "Always very enjoyable sessions, a really good idea for parents.."

  • Rose Tree Care Home; We have established good links with the home, and three lucky children won the chance to name one of the 3 suites in the building. We visit the residents each term and perform songs and our Reception children will be .

  • Cherryburn; We continue to work with Cherryburn across the school year, using their resources to support our artwork, outdoor learning and general curriculum work.  

  • St. George's Church; We have Reverend Pat Moran coming into school each half term and we also visit St. George's as part of our Creative Partnerships project, through which the children are learning about our local community and how it developed over the last 1000 years. We hope to maintain a strong link with participation of staff and pupils in important aspects of the church calendar.

  • Last year we planted flowers in the village along with members of the local community in commemoration of WWI, after the sucess of the project we would like to do something similar in the future.

  • Since 2013 we take part in the Prudhoe P/ship Pupil Voice Conference for members of our school council to attend at the Fuse.  Six children from each partnership school attend and then they come back to school to share their experiences.  This year they will be covering environmental topics.

  • Mickley regularly gets involved in sports competitions with other local schools, sports include Rugby, Gymnastics, Football and Athletics.
  • We enjoy performing at Mickley and have taken part in the switching on of the Christmas lights in Prudhoe as well as singing carols at the local garden centre.
  • Mickley was involved with local schools to promote participation in sport in the build up to the London2012 Olympics.
