KJ Linked - Weekly Learning Toolkit

25/05/2020 - KJ Linked Issue 8 released!

As you will have seen, the Government is encouraging secondary schools to consider a partial return for Year 10 and Year 12 students from Monday 1st June 2020. Our view continues to be that it is important that we take appropriate, extensive and considered actions to assure the safety of all members of our school community to make the right decision at the right time.

NEW! The £10,000 Charity Challenge

January 2020


Fundraising for worthy causes is an important part of life at King James and we organise a host of events and activities throughout the year. This month, we are launching our most ambitious project yet - The £10,000 Challenge!

Our aim is to raise a total of £10,000 for a variety of charities, both local and national, between January 2020 and January 2021.

Each half term, year groups from 7-11 will be allocated a different charity and their fundraising efforts will be donated at the end of the time period. Our new totaliser board will keep track of their year group efforts and their contribution towards fulfilling our overall Academy goal. Fundraising is an excellent way to promote a sense of achievement in our young people and show them that by working together, they can make a real difference in our community and the wider world.

Over the next year we will be supporting the British Heart Foundation, Stray Aid Local Animal Rescue, Butterwick Hospice, West Auckland Food Bank and The Offside Trust - Safeguarding children in sport.
