Update on face covering/mask wearing in school-02/11/2020

As Hull enters Tier 2. and then goes into full Lock Down with the rest of England on 5th November 2020, it is now mandatory for all staff to wear masks in communal areas, and I have also given then permission to wear them in the class, or when working with pupils across the school, if they so wish.  

As always, pupils and students may wear their own masks in school if they are able to put them on and take them off without support.

All masks must be stored or disposed off properly and safely.

All visitors, including parents, must also wear a mask when entering the school buldings.

Many thanks for your continuing support.

Eddy Wharton, Head Teacher.

    Dream to Play

    The primary children have had enough of their drab playground! We have been receiving kind donations from a range of charitable trusts and generous individuals as well as raising our own funds by making and baking and organising crafty raffles and stalls. So far we have £65,000 of the money we need and there is about £50,000 to go to make our dreams come true. The children want to swing and bounce, spin and climb, chase and imagine. They can’t do this in the current bleak concrete space. Let’s have a final push and make this dream come true in 2018. If you have any ideas or can put us in touch with people who might help us please contact Fiona Taylor at the school.

    Tell The World

    As the amazing City of Culture 2017 draws to a close Ganton School would like to thank all the fantastic artists and creative teams that have worked with our pupils this year. We have had the great pleasure of taking part in drama of the highest quality with Brocolilly Theatre (now known as The Herd); our most disabled pupils were enchanted by Home at Hull Truck Theatre and many pupils have visited the quirky installations such as Voice Park. Visiting artists have included Land of Green Ginger, Northern Ballet, Art in the Park, Liz Dees working for Colours of Freedom and the 16,000 Clay Bricks project. There really has been something for everyone and we have all thoroughly enjoyed being inspired to try new things, discover new talents and tell the world how amazing we are. Wired Differently attracted world wide interest and we thank James Mulkeen for his superb photo record.
