The 10 Day Active Travel Challenge is back!

Our school will be taking part in South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership’s 10 day Active Travel Challenge starting on Monday 11th June and finishing on Friday 22nd June.

The challenge is for pupils & their families to choose an active way of getting to school over the 10 day period.

We need everyone to take part and make an effort to travel to school in an active way during the challenge. The challenge is also open to school staff and we will be making every effort to take part.

Walking, cycling, skating, scooting and park & stride are all active ways of travelling and we hope by taking part in the challenge it will:

1. Improve health & wellbeing of our pupils & their families
2. Encourage pupils and families to be more active
3. Reduce congestion and parking problems around our school
4. Promote active travel for the journey to school and for families to continue to do this after the challenge!

During the challenge each classroom will have a wall chart on which pupils who have travelled actively will record their journey by adding a special sticker to the chart.

Please be aware if you live a long way from school and need to drive you can still take part by parking away from school (at least a 5 minute walk) and walking the last part of your journey, this is called Park & Stride.

Our school could also win some fantastic prizes. We are competing against schools from across South Yorkshire so we really do need your help. Please do your best to be active on your journey to school and help us complete the challenge.

On the 27th June, it is a whole school transition day; if your child is going to Stocksbridge High School, they will be going there for the day. More details regarding this will be sent out nearer the time. 


It would be great to see you all at our last parents' evening of the school year, which takes place on the 3rd and 4th of
July. come and find out how your child is progressing in school and how best you can support their learning at home. Letters with more details will be issued nearer the time.

This year, Deepcar St John's will have been open 50 years. We are trying to collect old school photos to create an album of our school through the years. These will be on display at our 50th Anniversary concert to be held on the 4th of July. Any pictures can either be sent via Facebook, email or dropped into the school office. We will be inviting parents, carers family members and friends to join us for an afternoon of celebrations. Bishop Peter will also be joining us. We will be in touch once we have finalised the details.  

Our last day dedicated to design and technology will be taking place on the 25th of June. We will post on our Facebook page pictures of what each year group have been designing and making.  


You are invited to join us on the 19th July, for our Sports Day, starting at 9.30 am until lunchtime. The whole school will be split into their house point teams and compete in track and field events against each other. Let's keep our fingers crossed for nice weather. 

Royd Nursery Infant school are also celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. Together we will be holding a joint 'Summer Fayre' taking place on the 17th of July. We will be holding an open session from 10.30am to 11.30am for past pupils and staff to come and look around the school. Visitors will then be offered a drink and cake provided by the school.   

Both schools are having a dress up day, where we are asking parents and carers to dress their child in clothes from the sixties.  All children from both schools will be having a picnic lunch on our school field. Children can either bring a picnic lunch from home or purchase one from school for £2. Please be aware that no other lunch options will be available that day. 

During the afternoon both schools will be holding their enterprise and summer fayre. Parents and carers can arrive from 1.20pm and it will be finished by 3pm. We would be very grateful for support from parents/carers by volunteering time after school to help tidy up. 

We hope that you can join us.
