Welcome to Easterside Academy

"Giving the Chance to Shine"

Community Spirit!

Last week was a really difficult week with the sudden arrival of the snow and then having to make the very hard decision to close the school for what ended up being three days! Throughout that time I kept in touch with other Head Teachers across Teesside as well as the Local Authority and their Emergency Planning Team; the local police and the Met Office for weather updates. Having to close the school was not taken lightly and lots of factors had to be considered – the main one being the safety of staff and pupils trying to get into school. The snow also disrupted other services such as food deliveries being made last week – this also impacted upon whether we were able to open as a school.

Although the snow created problems for some of us, it was also a wonderful experience for the children and their families! Last time Easterside Academy closed due to the snow was eight years ago! This just shows us that these experiences don’t come along that often and it was a great opportunity to make some memories with our children and families. I saw lots of photographs and video’s from staff and parents sharing what they were getting up to in the snow and some I was able to share on our Twitter feed.

The highlight of the week for me though was the number of people, of all ages that turned up on Sunday morning for our ‘big dig’. Around forty people! Everyone was so dedicated and determined to make the school site safe for staff and families to return today. There is definitely community spirit on Easterside! A HUGE THANK YOU was given along with a bacon butty or two!
