Welcome to Eldon Primary School                                   Headteacher: Azra Butt

Headteachers' Welcome


This morning we had a surprise visitor in school. Scott Fitzgerald, the local Common Wealth Games Gold Medal winner, was invited into school to share his success with our children. He was a brilliant inspiration to us all and particularly to two of our budding boxers Ben and Tre. We are also re-naming one of our House Teams after Scott Fitzgerald. Well done everyone! Thank you Scott and all the best for preparing for the Olympics in two years time!

We had a visitor yesterday called Russell Wall who was cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats.  He stopped in Preston and visited our school to explain his fundraising cycle event.  Russell helped us to plant some cherry trees as he wanted to explain about the importance of the environment and how trees help us to sustain our living. If you want to find out more about his work click here http://fund4trees.org.uk

Our brand new Reception children attended their first ever week in school and they have been an absolute joy! They have settled down really well and even attended the Friday assembly this morning. Well done parents, children and teachers!

Clubs began this week and children have been really impressed with the 21 different clubs on offer. From Monday, please collect your child after the club from the Infant yard at 4.00p.m.

Our ‘meet the teacher meetings’ were attended by some parents. We are sending out the curriculum maps that were shared at these sessions today so that all parents can see what is being taught in the curriculum.

Next week, we have our second group of Reception children starting school. We have 40 children starting in total.

On Wednesday we have our elections in school for our Eco and School Council Members. Also, for the very first time, Year 6 children have nominated themselves for Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl positions. We will be having make shift polling booths in the hall.  Wish us good luck!

On Friday afternoon next week we have our Macmillan Coffee afternoon. Please support this worthy cause by sending in cakes and biscuits as well as attending the session itself. Please see below for timings.
