Welcome to Eldon Primary School             LEP SCHOOL OF THE YEAR!                                Eldon expects the best...Lets be the best that we can be!

Headteachers' Welcome


The GREAT news keeps on coming…

Last week on Friday, the Senior Leadership Team of the school and a Governor had the pleasure of attending an awards ceremony in Liverpool. Our school was shortlisted for the ‘Most Inspirational’ Primary School and I am really proud to say that we were crowned ‘runners up!’. We have brought back with us a wonderful certificate and it is currently displayed in our hall alongside the Gold Award Trophy for our Behaviour Quality Mark.  I will take this opportunity to congratulate and thank Mr Moss, Mrs Sandland and all the teachers and staff for their hard work. Thank you to our parents for working with the school and enforcing the high expectations we have at Eldon and to the Governors for helping us get there!

This morning Year 3 shared their learning on ‘Healthy Eating’. The teachers and children did a great job, reminding us about the importance of a healthy diet and making sure we keep ourselves fit and healthy! Thank you Mr Aspinall and Miss Ahmed for entertaining us with your super learning. Well done also to our Yr3 children!

Our School Council members have continued to carry on learning and educating everyone about being great friends on the back of the anti-bullying work from last week. Please take a look at their top tips below! They are being trained as ‘bully busters’ and will be able to advise any child on resolving issues on the playground. The idea being that before any bullying starts, it STOPS!

Next Thursday, we have our parents evening when all parents of the school will be able to collect an end of term report and be able to discuss their child’s progress with the class teacher. Please book a time with the teachers—we want to share the progress of our school with you!










We are very proud of all of our achievements to date. Mr Moss, Ms William’s (Chair of Governors) and myself attended a special award ceremony in London to receive our Inclusion Quality Mark Award which the school acquired last spring. We brought back a wonderful plaque which will have pride of place in our new entrance in due course. We even had chance to do a spot of site seeing too and noticed that the Queen was definitely in residence at Buckingham Palace!
