Dear Parents

We’re making communication easier, faster and more effective

I’m pleased to advise that we’ve introduced a new service - ‘School Gateway’. This means that we can share information with parents more quickly via email, text, online and smartphone app. It will also save parents - and the school - time and money.

Activate your School Gateway account. It’s quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.

Download the app: If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS you can message the school for FREE – this will also save the school money when we send you a text message.

Yr 8 and 9 students enjoyed their first "Insight" day with Charlotte Hughes from TICE today. Students are investigating Surface Design and Textiles and produced some beautifully coloured cushions after experimenting with colour, shape and pattern and a range of art materials.

Following the success of our recent North Tyneside Unplugged campaign, Dr Martin Lee will be giving two further information sessions on the negative effects of addiction and overuse of digital devices in January. 

The sessions will take place on:
  • Monday 15th January 2018, 6.00 - 7.00pm @ Valley Gardens Middle School, Valley Gardens, Whitley Bay, NE25 9AQ 
  • Wednesday 17th January 2018, 6.00 - 7.00pm @ Churchill Community College, Churchill St, Wallsend, NE28 7TN 
Both sessions are FREE and open to all. They are appropriate for parents, school staff and other interested adults to attend and might be particularly interesting if you are planning to build the messages from our campaign into your online safety or PSHE curriculums.

If you would like to attend either of these sessions please sign up with this online form

Across December we are going to demonstrate our kindness and giving; instead of a traditional Advent Calendar we are going to have a random act of kindness and a suggested give.

The act of kindness will be carried out in school or at home by everyone for example asking someone how they are.

Each day will have a suggested ‘give’.  We don’t expect every student to contribute each day – the suggested ‘give’ is purely voluntary.   Our suggested gives are food items, which will be donated to The Bay Food Bank, North Shields at the end of term.   

An additional ‘give’ is to donate a present/something towards a present which will go to a child who is in hospital over the festive period. All presents collected will go to the RVI where they will be shared amongst all of the young people there through Milo’s Christmas.  Please mark presents as being suitable for a boy or girl and the suggested age group.

Students should leave donations in their Tutor Rooms. Thank you for your continued support. #rippleccc

Churchill Students Abroad

Belgium - 2017

Last week 23 students from year 8 were able to travel to Ypres, Belgium to remember those who fell during the First World War.  Whilst in Belgium students visited a number of sites including Tyne Cot Cemetery, Talbot House, the German cemetery at Langemaark and were even able to experience the authentic WW1 tunnels at Zonnebekke which had been cleared for 100 days for the general public to commemorate the Battle of Paschendaele.

Students were guided by Simon Louagie and Koenraad Dumoulin over two days and during this time were able to learn a lot about how Belgium, a neutral country in the First World War, became an important part of the allied war efforts.

All students and staff had a great time and we were proud that Churchill Community College were involved in the memorial celebrations at the Menin Gate on Thursday 9th November.
