At Tankersley – we are active!

On Friday 9th March, the whole school, walked to school together. Our theme was to get active and we all dressed up in sporty outfits. We were joined on our walk by Sir Harry Llewellyn, who was a British Olympian from the 1940’s. Our walk was followed by an entertaining performance from Sir Harry (Histronics), which the children (and teachers) found hilarious! Thank you to all the parents who supported our walk to school and thank you to PWLC, who provided the funding for this event.

Class 5 – 5 minute walk 7.3.18

Today, Bike it Dave helped class 5, to determine our ‘5 minute walk zone’ around our school. Together, we set up 3 starting points for our ‘park and stride’ scheme.

The first is on the corner of Lidgett Lane, the next is across the bridge, parking near Aldi and the last is at the top of Westwood New Road, near Thorncliffe way.

These are now established starting points, where you can park your car and walk, scoot or bike the remainder of your journey to school.

The children also created a parking charter, to highlight the benefits, which come from not parking directly outside school.

We want to work with our families to create a safe environment for our pupils and would encourage parents to use these starting points, leaving their cars and walking the remaining 5 minutes to school.

More information is to follow.

Let’s get active!

Safety Online…

Recently we had the pleasure of welcoming the NSPCC in conjuction with O2 into our school to put on a fantastic workshop to our parents.

The workshop focused on ways in which we can keep our children safe online with practical tips as well as very useful information. 

Thank you to the parents who made the effort to come along. If you would like any information or a leaflet from the event speak to Mr McNerlin.

We are really proud of our Road Safety achievements…

In January last year, we were awarded Bronze Modeshift Stars award and by November, we achieved the Silver Modeshift stars award. We are very proud of this, as we are the first school in Barnsley to achieve the Silver award.

In recognition of all our hard work, our school was invited to an award ceremony in Leeds. This was an opportunity to recognise all our hard work, in promoting and educating pupils in road safety. At this award ceremony, we discovered that our school had been chosen as a winner.

We were awarded a very special award: The Modeshift stars – Best primary school in Barnsley award. So we are officially now the best school in Barnsley!

The Mayor presented both the Silver and Best primary award, on Thursday 11th January.
