Welcome to Eldon Primary School                  Proud to be Outstanding (OFSTED 2017)                 LEP SCHOOL OF THE YEAR...FOR THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS!                   Eldon expects the best...Let's be the best that we can be!






Amazing News!

Eldon Primary School has been shortlisted for the TES ‘Primary School of the Year’ Award! This is a National award and everyone should be very proud of the part they play in helping Eldon to be the best it can be! The ceremony is taking place in London! Watch this space for further details!

Cancer Research fundraising event...

Next week Mr Moss is taking part in Cancer Research fundraising event where he is being ‘de-haired!’ Lots of you are sponsoring him to raise funds for this worthy cause. So far, he has raised £200. Please keep your money coming in!


Congratulations to Eldon’s Choir who had an amazing competition on the last day of the spring term. Despite fierce competition, we were award-ed the award for ‘artistic expression’! The children sang like angels and the judges were amazed. A HUGE WELL DONE to the choir and our teachers, Miss Darby, Mr Scott and Miss Paula! Thank you to the parents who helped on the day. It was a very late night but well worth it! We have another trophy for our cabinet and this time for singing! Amazing!

Parent and child workshops

Our parent and child courses have begun. We have Reading workshops on a Tuesday pm for the next 5 weeks and Science learning for junior children on Thursday pm. Please do chat to Miss Tomlinson about these and return your signed slip into school, as soon as possible. Our Parent Gym classes are also starting very soon. Any parents wanting to take part please talk to myself or Miss Tomlinson.

'Flagship’ Status!

Our Inclusion Quality Mark final report has arrived in school and we have been awarded ‘Flagship’ Status! This is a HUGE accolade as we are the first primary school in the whole of Lancashire to achieve this status! I know you will want me to thank the staff and Governors for their efforts but I wanted to congratulate our pupils, parents and wider community for their sup-port over the past 7 years for making this happen. Congratulations also to Mr Moss who has led the Inclusion work in our school over the last 3 years. Well done, EVERYONE!
