Governors’ News

Thank you to everyone who responded to the Governors’ survey.   The Governing Body met on Tuesday evening and we were very interested in your views on the federation and our schools, in your concerns and particularly in your specific comments about how things could be improved in a variety of areas.  We shall be meeting early in September to finalise our Vision Statement for 2018-19, which will then be published.

As we near the end of term and the start of the summer holidays it has been a great time to visit both our schools.   I have been to see our children having wonderful Science and Forest School sessions – thank you teachers.  I’ve visited the Sports Days which were tremendous fun, with something for everyone – thank you to Mr. Ellis for organising them.  Last, but not least we had two great Summer Fairs, thanks to the hard work of FOLS and FOSS.  A good time was had by all and I won a prize at both!  I hope you all have a super summer break, parents, children and staff! 

Val Bottomley, Chair of Governors

Play School news

To celebrate the end of another fantastic academic year of Play School we will be having a Play School summer party. On Wednesday 18th July we will have a garden party with a paddling pool, water sprinkler, games, music and a party snack. For those children who are not booked in for a Wednesday session you are welcome to bring your child at 8:50am and collect them at 12pm so they can join in the party. Please provide your child with swim wear, a towel and spare clothes for the morning.

Dalby Forest Trip

All the children and staff from the federation had a fabulous day out in Dalby forest with Mr Ellis on Wednesday.  A big thank you to him for organising the day for us.


A big congratulations to the children that represented the Wolds and Vale team at Northstead School.  Their performance and attitude displayed itself in a great light. Along the way they achieved 1 draw and 3 wins, catapulting the federations’ reputation even further amongst the larger schools in Scarborough. Thank you to the parents and staff for supporting children at this event and having a little adults v’s children game between matches.
