American Exchange 

We said farewell to our Falmouth exchange students on Tuesday morning who continued their visit with sightseeing in London before heading back home to their parents.  Mr Elcock hosted a farewell party on Monday evening and from the pictures we have seen, the students were kept busy and entertained with our brilliant host families throughout their visit.  We would like to thank all of the parents involved for making it such a memorable visit, we are very grateful for the amount of effort and time taken to provide such a wonderful experience.  Special thanks also go to Mr Elcock who planned the trip meticulously and went above and beyond to ensure the visit was enjoyed by all.  Thanks also to Mrs Normand and Mr Rogerson for helping with the visit and particularly Mrs Normand who looked after visiting staff.  A limited number of places are available for the next exchange and if you would like further information please email Mr Elcock

Rossett students respond to birthday appeal

This week, Rossett students answered a birthday appeal from the Crest Care Home in Harrogate: a request for birthday cards for its oldest resident, Bill Roberson.  KS3 students, Holly, Riley, Layla and Bradley responded enthusiastically, working together as a team to create a 103rd Birthday Card for Bill.

Mrs Barnett and Bradley then delivered this to the Care Home where residents were delighted by the kind response to the birthday appeal. Staff thanked us for the children’s part in making Bill’s day special. As part of Rossett’s caring culture, we work hard to foster an attitude of kindness and respect for others in its young people. Projects like this are a brilliant way to connect the students with their local community and build relationships.  We are really proud of the thoughtful actions of our  students. We all send our best wishes to Bill as he celebrates his 103rd birthday today!

SEND: Have your say

North Yorkshire’s education, health and social care services are being jointly inspected by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to see how well they meet their responsibilities towards children and young people with SEN and disabilities (SEND).

They would like to hear your views about the support that your child/young person receives and how it has helped your child. 

You can provide your views by completing an online survey. What you share will be treated in confidence:

Guidance, Easy Read and more information can be found Area SEND inspections: information about ongoing inspections - GOV.UK (

Your views are important and will help Inspectors to understand your child/young person’s experience of the SEND arrangements in North Yorkshire.

The survey links and guidance can also be on the SEND Local Offer | North Yorkshire Council website.

The surveys will close at 9am on 23rd April 2024.
