Previous WWE administrator/character Dutch Mantell is guaranteeing on Twitter that he’s heard that WWE is available to be purchased with dealings occurring with ESPN and FOX.

The story has picked up a lot of footing via web-based networking media over the most recent 24 hours. I connected with somebody in WWE about this and I was informed that there have been no discussions with ESPN and additionally FOX about offering the organization to them.

On the ongoing speculator’s telephone call, Vince McMahon talked about the chance of selling the WWE Network to ESPN or FOX. Be that as it may, because of the current financial circumstance, TV systems like ESPN and FOX are not hoping to make significant acquisitions as of now. In the course of the most recent couple of years, McMahon has not closed the entryway down on potentially selling WWE yet it was all the more a “never state never” kind of answer at whatever point it has come upon financial specialist calls.

In this way, just, all things considered, the WWE source I talked with said that Dutch’s tweet isn’t precise and there are no discussions right now about selling the organization. If you are looking of Discount Summerslam Tickets.

Elton John shares rare glimpse into son’s lives in new snaps while on tour in Australia

Elton John has shared a rare series of photos of his sons while he embarks on his Australian tour. The legendary singer is currently down under as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, and as Elton John Chicago preparation will take some time out to thank his fans for the ‘amazing’ shows, he also took the opportunity to show fans what his children have been getting up to.

Taking to Instagram, Elton posted several snaps of his sons, Zachary, nine, and Elijah, seven, enjoying their time in country – from taking a boat trip to petting kangaroos, and even watching their father on TV, there was a whole lot going on.

‘The fans at every show have been AMAZING and the teams at all the local venues have been brilliant!’ Elton wrote. ‘Huge thanks to everyone at Bondi Nippers for teaching the boys about water safety and rescue.

‘Even bigger thanks to the extraordinary team who helped run our home so smoothly.’ He added: ‘Thanks also to the Australian press for respecting our family’s privacy – which allowed our sons to freely explore Australia’s treasures without distraction.

‘Au revoir from the Furnish-John family. We can’t wait to come back!’

Elton shares his sons with husband David Furnish, whom he legally married in 2014, and he previously revealed that he would have loved another child, but thinks he’s too old now.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “That’s it, we have passed the age. If we are under 20 or under 15, we are likely to get at least another. Get your Elton John Houston tickets in discount. But with children, we have enough hands.” Rocketman Rocketman had previously abandoned a tour in January 2018 to spend more time with his children, and although he currently resides worldwide, Zachary and Elia remain in the United Kingdom with David.

During the 2016-2017 year the Tynedale Schools Partnership will continue to deliver high quality PE lessons alongside school staff. A calendar of competitions linked to the curriculum has been organised. This is the final year that we will be buying into this provision as school staff have been upskilled and can offer the expertise to continue providing the same high level of teaching, competition and after school activity clubs. Any further CPD will be accessed using this funding to maintain staff skill levels.

Mr Hartley (Class 2 Teacher) is our PE co-ordinator and will be responible for maintaining our current high quality PE delivery. Co-ordinators from our mini partnership of schools will meet on a termly basis to plan and review provision.

The Impact of Sports Funding to date:

The school has participated in the following sports supported by a PE coach:

  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Gymnastics
  • Dance
  • Mixed ball skills

They are also about to participate in the following:

  • Tag Rugby
  • Tri Golf
  • Tennis
  • Athletics


  • The impact of the above is that it has and is going to provide a much wider range of sports than a very small school could normally provide.
  • Specialist support has meant that pupils get a better quality of sport coaching and teachers are upskilled.
  • Pupils are more enthusiastic about PE and look forward to the coach coming to school with a range of different equipment.
  • The school has also purchased a wider range of sporting equipment that has meant pupils can participate in a wider range of sports.
  • The funding has also allowed us to run an After School Sports Club each week which has had a very good uptake.

The school has also been able to participate in a wider range of competitive sports through the sports partnership including the following:

  • Football tournament
  • Cross Country
  • Gymnastics
  • Tag Rugby
  • Tri Golf
  • Tennis tournament
  • Skipping Festival

Overall pupils benefit from the sports funding with greater participation through competitive sport and a wider range of sporting activities that they would not normally be able to access. Children learn to mix with other schools, be part of team building and experience exposure to different levels of competition. In the future hockey, netball and dance performance may take place.

During the 2015-2016 year the PE grant bought us the expertise of 2 specialist PE teachers who organised a programme of curriculum delivery, inter-school competitions and staff continuous professional development. We also attained the Sainsbury School Games for 2014 – 2015 award at a Silver level and are hoping to achieve the Gold award for the 2015-2016 year.

What is the Sports Premium Grant?

The Government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the three academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils (as reported in the 2013 school census) will receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Greenhaugh.

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
run sports activities with other schools

For the academic year, 2013 – 2014, we used the money to continue to buy-in Mrs Anne Scott from Bellingham Middle School, to deliver PE on Monday afternoons. In addition to this, we partially bought into the Tynedale School Sports Partnership (TSSP) which entitled us to a specialist teacher for two terms when we were not swimming, Staff Training on a range of courses, including “Real P.E.” and “Change for Life Clubs”, After-School Club provision (Multi Skills and Gymnastics so far) and intra and inter-school competition and festivals, such as the Skipping Festival in May ’14.

For this academic year, 2014 – 2015, we are planning to buy fully in to the TSSP and use the expertise of our own staff for the additional teaching sessions. We will continue to provide swimming lessons for a term, as well as a range of after-school clubs run by external staff and our own staff.

Impact: We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Measuring the impact of the activities provided with the funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made by formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in P.E. It is anticipated that at the end of the academic year we will have some data to show the impact of this sports premium funding on pupil progress and involvement in sport.


We are very fortunate to have an active and successful Parent Teacher Association, known as FOGS (Friends of Greenhaugh School).

Fundraising activities and social events are organised all year round, including a hugely popular Curry Evening, a Halloween Disco and a Summer Fair.

We have great fun organising these events and they are always very well supported by parents, families and the local community. However volunteers are always welcome, even if you can’t attend all the meetings. Please contact school if you are able to help in any way: 01434 240208

All the money that FOGS makes from these activities is put directly back into the school: our summer and winter trips are funded by FOGS, and we are able to buy new and additional equipment for the school such as new goal posts, library furniture and digital cameras etc.

bookmark_borderSEND Information Report 2016-2017

The government has put in place a number of measures to bring about improvements to the way that Special Education Needs services are delivered. One of these is the “SEND Inforrmation Report”.

Local authorities and other services, including schools, will now be setting out a local offer (Information Report) of all services available to support children who are disabled or who have a special education need (SEN) and their families. The Report will enable families to understand what services they can access and what support they can expect. The offer will include provision from birth to 25, across education, health and welfare.

The potential outcomes of the Information Report are:

  • To provide clarity and confidence for parents
  • To support earlier intervention
  • To reduce the need for assessement
  • To identify needs and gaps in provision
  • To provide an evidence base for improving progress and securing better outcomes at school and local level.

bookmark_borderPupil Premium

We have purchased reading, writing and maths interventions and have sent a class teacher and a teaching assistant on Talk Boost Key Stage 2 training. Careful timetabling is enabling these interventions to be implemented in KS2 to the PPG children who need support with their reading and retrieval skills; their comprehension and writing skills and their speaking and listening.

A small reading group intervention run by a teaching assistant, 3 sessions per week, has benefitted the children involved by increasing their reading speed and retrieval skills.

Impact to date (Feb 2017). Our PPG children are expected to reach their age related potential with one child’s differences diminishing significantly. Further children who joined us late, who will benefit from PPG funding in this next financial year, have been included in the current intervention schemes. There has been a positive impact on their learning from their starting points at Greenhaugh.

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Government considers the Pupil Premium to be a key element of their education policy. Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium provides additional funding to schools to target specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. These include pupils from low income families; children in care and the children of armed service personnel.

For this financial year, £1320 has been allocated to schools for any pupil who has been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last six years along with looked-after children who have been in continuous care for more than six months. In addition, a Service Child Premium of £300 per pupil has been allocated to children with parents in the armed services in recognition for the particular challenges that they face.

What are the aims of the Pupil Premium?

The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to raise the achievement and aspirations of disadvantaged groups of children.

The link between free school meal eligibility and underachievement is strong. The Pupil Premium seeks to tackle this inequality in educational outcomes. The Premium is intended to help schools to provide targeted support to improve the life chances of children from lower income families and young people who face additional challenges in their lives so that they can reach their full potential.

How is the Pupil Premium used at Greenhaugh First School?

The Government has given schools discretion in how to best use the funding to meet the needs of their children. Please note that funding is based on the financial year (April to March) rather than the academic year (September to July), and pupil numbers are taken from the January census for each of those years. Therefore, our funding for the ’15 – ’16 financial year is based on four pupils, but will drop in the ’16 – ’17 financial year to only one pupil (£1320).


To continue to raise the attainment of all pupils who are eligible to FSM by accelerating progress so that it is in line with or better than national expectations.

  • Early intervention in phonics.
  • Small group and 1:1 tuition – Mrs Hogarth (Autumn Term 2013)
  • Shared cost of Parent Support Partner – Janet Nicholson.
  • The subsidy of trips and enrichment activities.
  • The provision of extra trips and visitors to the school to broaden horizons.
  • Promotion of self-esteem through encouraging participation in sport, music, drama and other activities.

All pupil premium children made good progress by the end of July 2014.

  • Small group work – Mrs Be Hulbert (for half a day per week for Summer and Autumn term 2014 and possibly Spring term 2015)
  • Shared cost of Parent Support Partner
  • Early intervention in phonics
  • Specific equipment relevant to physical need purchased to support children
  • The subsidy of residential visits and trips from school and enrichment activities
  • Training for staff on effective intervention strategies

The vast majority of our Pupil Premium children made better than expected progress by the end of July 2015.

  • Teaching Assistant time is being bought in from Bellingham Middle School for the delivery of a ten week maths intervention, “First Class at Maths”
  • Maths resource, Numicon, is being purchased to support progress in maths.
  • Assessment materials are being purchased to allow us to gain a more detailed picture of the children’s strengths and weaknesses, so that we can make best use of interventions and support within school and from outside agencies.
  • Funding is also being used to support the budget in order to mantain our current levels of staffing. This is necessary because of a large decrease in pupil numbers for the current academic year. Teaching and Support Staff (Teaching Assistants) are responsible for the progress made by all pupils, including those receiving Pupil Premium funding and therefore a vital resource.

How will the impact of Pupil Premium be evaluated at Greenhaugh First School?

During the academic year 2015/16, we will continue to monitor the progress of the pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium through analysis of their teacher assessments each term. This will inform decisions about interventions and future provision.

In addition, information from lesson observations, children’s books, and pupil and parent feedback will form key parts of the evaluation process.

How can parents and carers contribute to the success of the Pupil Premium scheme?

If your child is eligible for free school meals, it is worth registering them even if they’re not going to have the school lunch. It will have a direct impact on the funding and will maximize the support we can provide.

Parental support and involvement is a key factor in raising standards. If you would like help or advice with supporting your child, please contact Head Teacher, Mrs Lewis or Chair of Governors, Mrs Jenni Holland.

Your child may be entitled to Free School Meals, if you are entitled to receive any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit ‘run-on’ – the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

bookmark_borderPSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)

As a member of the PSHE Association, our PSHE is based on their recommended Programme of Study.

We are currently in the process of renewing our Healthy Schools Accreditation and applying for the Anti-Bullying Accreditation, however, much of the work required for both awards takes place in school on a regualr basis throughout the year.

We hold daily assemblies which deal with aspects of PSHE and include a “Celebration Assembly” every Monday at 2.40pm. Assemblies also focus on special times throughout the year such as Black History Month and Anti-bullying Week.

Within the classrooms, children take part in Show and Tell sessions and Class Council (KS2), which help them to develop respect for each other through turn-taking and to develop their speaking and listening skills.

As part of our school development for 2014 – 2015, we are working towards building up the children’s resilience to challenge and problem-solving and to developing their independence as learners, and as part of this, have adopted the Chris Quigley Personal Skills Development objectives. These include: To try new things; To work hard; To concentrate; To push oneself; To imagine; To improve; To understand others and To not give up. These goals are displayed in the classrooms and referred to throughout the day. We also have weekly Independent Writing sessions which allow the children to identify their skill focus and set targets, as well as evaluating their own and other’s work.

We were awarded the Eco-school’s Green Flag award in 2012, and while we do not intend to renew the award through Eco-Schools, we remain committed to the principles behind the award and will be continuing the excellent work that has been established in school over the years, for example, recycling as many materials as possible, saving energy and water through campaigns to promote awareness to children and their families, and taking part in projects such as Earth Magic to promote sustainability and environmental awareness.

We place great importance on keeping our children safe in school and at home, and recognise that the internet can pose many dangers to young people. We teach E Safety to the children and hold E Safety sessions for parents at least once a year. All parents, children and staff sign an Acceptable Use statement at the start of the year and we ask all parents to give permission or otherwise for the use of photographic images of their children.

Keeping healthy is a very important part of our school and we have signed up to the Tynedale School Sport’s Partnership which provides high quality P.E. delivery in school, CPD for staff and the opportunity to participate in a variety of inter-school competitions. So far this year we have taken part in a Skipping festival, Football Tournament and Cross Country Running Competition.


What is the PSED?

The Equality Act 2010 introduced a single, general duty for public bodies, including schools, and which extends to all “protected characteristics” – race, disability, sex, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity and gender reassignment.

There are three main elements within the act and in carrying out our functions, as a school, we must have regard to the need to:

  1. Eliminate discrimination and the other conduct prohibited by the act.
  2. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
  3. Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

It should be noted that age is a relevant charactyeristic for schools when considering their duties as an employer but not in relation to pupils.

Our partner Ticket2concert is offering few cheap tickets. Get them before they get sold.

All schools must have “due regard” to the three elements. Therefore whenever significant decisions are being made, or policies being developed or reviewed, the school will consider carefully the equalities implications.


Pre-school and Reception children have the opportunity to work together on Tuesday and Thursday mornings with our Reception teacher, Mrs Be Hulbert (Tuesday), Teaching Assistant, Mrs Morag Macleod (Thursday) and pre-school staff, Mrs Amanda Buchanan.

Staff plan jointly for the morning session.


Our most recent inspection took place on 14th March 2017. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in May 2012. We were all very pleased that the inspector judged that the school “continues to be good”.
