New Website Launched!

New Website Launched!

Our new Acorn Federation website has now gone live. Please visit it at and add it to your favourites.

There are three inter-linked websites, one for Acorn Federation with information about the Federation and one each for St Andrew’s and Mrs Ethelston’s with information specific to each school. The website will be updated regularly to include news, photos and messages for both schools, and we hope that you will find it to be a useful additional stream of information in conjunction with the Parentmail system.

Thank you to the initial working party of staff and governors who initially conceived the outline design and to the website designer who has done a fantastic job of interpreting our initial concept.

We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Mansi for all their work on the photos – I think you will all agree that they really do enhance the sites and reflect the character of both schools - and that the children are all potential models!

Thank you also to all the parents who gave their consent for their children to be featured on the website. As the vast majority of parents had given their consent we had many more photos than we could use. The website designer selected a variety of photos that he felt best reflected the schools. We will be using more photos in the future, so keep an eye out for these if your child does not appear on the website at present.

Myself, Mrs Slingsby and Mrs Hallam will soon receive training to enable us to keep the website up to date – please bear with us if we make a few errors when we are first doing this!

Finally, we would love to hear your comments about the new websites; please email your thoughts to me at

Kind Regards,


Sue Miller
