Coronavirus Updates

For any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility,  and who subsequently becomes unable to provide childcare at home –  you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing office@newhorizonschildrensacademy.org.uk or calling 0333 602115 by 9am the day before.

For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.  Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.

Day of the Dead Competition

Day of the Dead Competition

Mrs Ortega-Izquierdo handed out prizes for her Day of the Dead Competition at lunchtime on Thursday 14th November. Students were challenged to create an altar for a famous deceased Hispanic person for El Día de los Muertos, held on 1st and 2nd November. Students got creative, using a variety of materials. They also had to research and  learn  as the altars needed to include the traditional items of El Día de los Muertos altar and any others they felt appropriate. We were proud to see so many entries to the competition, all of them well-researched, colourful and unique.

All participants were treated to a small celebration and staff members were invited to see the intricate work created. The altars had been placed on display around the classroom. All students received certificates but special prizes went to certain winners. Well done to Zachary Watson who won first place and Jaden Edusei and Isaac Turner who came second and third place respectively.
