Year 5 and 6 open evening

Welcome to Teesdale School. Join us on Thursday 19th September for our annual Year 5 and 6 open evening - we hope to see you there!

Join us on Thursday 19th September for our annual open evening from 4:30-7:30pm.

If you're thinking of sending your child to Teesdale School, our open evening is a must to get a real taste of school life here. There will be plenty of activities for your child to get involved in and lots of opportunities for parents to speak to staff who will answer any questions you have.

Please join us and see for yourself why we think we have something special here at Teesdale School.

Can I ride my bike to school?

You can ride your bike to school. There are bike stands to the right of the front entrance where you can store it, but the school will not accept responsibility for your bike. 

How will I find my way around school?

When students start school, they will be given a map and a tour. Students will find very quickly that they start to remember their way around, but they can always ask if they are unsure. Teachers are sensitive to the fact that Year 7 need to acclimatise to the school’s layout.

How do I know what uniform to buy?

Wearing a uniform creates a sense of community and we believe ours is both practical and fair. We are proud of our uniform and it is fully listed on our uniform page, including links to our main supplier, Emblematic. All parents and carers will also be sent information in regard to uniform via induction packs.

What do I need to bring on my first day?

On their first day, students will need to bring the correct equipment from the equipment list. Basic equipment includes a pen, pencil and ruler. Students will be provided with a planner, which they should bring to school every day, on their first day. On their first day, students should also bring a packed lunch or money to buy food at the canteen. We will ensure students have a fingerprint taken as, typically, we operate a cashless system in the canteen.

What if I get lost on the way to lessons?

If students get lost on the way to lessons, they should just ask someone. Whether that is a student or member of staff, there are always many people to ask. Everyone is friendly, approachable and willing to help.

What if someone tries to bully me at school?         

If a member of our school community behaves in an inappropriate way towards students, then it is really important that they tell somebody. This person could be a friend, parents/carers, their tutor, a teacher or their Head of Year. Students must tell somebody to so we can swiftly deal with the situation.

Where do I go if I need help?

If students need help, they can go to student reception, their tutor or their head of year. Teachers are also more than willing to help as well as our students. Simply ask someone and we are sure they will help you.
