Welcome to Eldon Primary School                                   Headteacher: Azra Butt

Headteachers' Welcome


Lee Whitely, our Paralympic Athlete visitor on Monday this week, absolutely blew us away! What an inspirational athlete! He shared his life story, including details about his disability, cerebral palsy with the children and teachers. His ‘I can’ motto was very easy to see and we were all impressed with how he had over come many personal hurdles to achieve his world class sporting achievements. I know many children will use him as a positive role model. Thank you for the sponsorship money. We have raised a phenomenal £302.50! This will be split three ways to pay for additional sports equipment; support the next GB Team for their Paralympic games and the rest will go to charity. All our children loved working with Lee.

After Easter, we will be welcoming two new teachers to our school. Mr Aspinal is joining our school and will be teaching Year 3 from April. Sadly, we say goodbye to Mr Blackburn and thank him for his hard work , as well as wishing him all the best in his teaching career. Also, our Nursery is also welcoming a teacher who will be strengthening the existing team. Miss Sykes is joining us and will oversee the teaching and learning for our Nursery children. Both teachers are visiting school next week.

Next week, we are also looking forward to some exciting Easter activities.

Year 3 and Year 4 are leading our Easter production on the morning of the 26th March at 9.15a.m. Parents of these classes are welcome to join us for this. On Tuesday at 5.45p.m. we are show casing ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’. Tickets are available from the school office at £1 each. On Friday 27th in the morning, infant children can bring their decorated Easter bonnets. Each child will receive an Easter egg for participating. As well as some generous donations from Tesco and Booths, Eldon’s Social Gathering have donated the rest.

Clubs will finish tomorrow and will resume after the break.
