Road Crossing Patrol

Just to keep you informed regarding the absence of Mark Atkinson, School Crossing Patrol, at Hardy’s Road. He will unfortunately be off until 10th November and the Road Safety Education Team are currently not in a position to arrange cover.

The team have said that, in Mark’s absence, there seems to be have been an increase in irresponsible and dangerous parking, so they will continue to monitor the parking around the school and ask Civil Enforcement Officers to attend this site periodically. They have asked us to again remind everyone that they have a moral and legal responsibility to be safe and considerate when parking around the school for the safety of ALL children.


Competition Time!

North East Lincolnshire Council is launching a competition to find new artwork to promote recycling on its new bin lorries.
Twelve new bin lorries for collecting household waste will be hitting the streets in spring 2020. The existing vehicles are several years old and need replacing.
Winners will have their designs displayed on the new lorries and they will each receive a replica model of the lorry.

The artwork competition is open to people of all ages and is divided into three age categories:

• Under 11 years old
• 11 to 17 years old
• 18 and over (including community groups).

There’s also a name the bin lorry competition.

All entries must be received by 5pm on Friday 29 November 2019.

All entrants must live in North East Lincolnshire.


School Uniform

We are making a change to the way you purchase school uniform. We will no longer be selling uniform from the school office; instead, Uniform Direct (who already provide our uniform) will offer parents an instore and online service from 18th October 2019. They will have our uniform available in their store at 54 Victoria Street, Grimsby in the town centre pedestrian area next door to Argos.

Due to availability, the new uniform will be a slightly different shade and the cardigans will no longer be a knitted material. All uniform will have an embroidered logo. We are expecting the change to be a gradual transition, as all children can continue to wear the current uniform.

Ordering online is very simple. Just visit then to ‘Select Your School’ and ‘Primary Schools’ and scroll down to Signhills Academy to find uniform approved by the school with the school logo and their chosen plain items.

If you need to contact them, there is a contact form on the site which, once completed, will go directly to their help desk to be dealt with by their dedicated team, or you can e-mail them directly at or call on 01522 568865.
