Welcome to Eldon Primary School                                   Headteacher: Azra Butt

Headteachers' Welcome


I hope everyone managed to catch the newspaper article in last nights LEP all about our ‘Centre of Excellence’ for our work on Inclusion. It is a great read and I will pass on your congratulations to all the staff and especially Mr Moss who is our Inclusion Manager.

On Thursday, the children and staff had an impromptu extra playtime! The whole school were in attendance (except one child who is off long term) and we were practically 100%! Well done all the children and staff who have helped us achieve this! Let’s continue to have more days like this!

Our attendance this week is spot on—96.7%. This is above our new target for this year (96%). Thank you for getting your children to arrive and on time.

Our Macmillan Cake sale last Friday was a super hit and the warm weather especially helped!  Thank you for all your donations of cakes. All proceeds will go towards Macmillan Cancer Research. We will be able to let you know how much we raised next week.

On Tuesday evening, I attended  a Charity  event organised by the ‘Abaseen Foundation.’ Three special guests visited school earlier in the day to tell us about two schools in Kyberpass, North—West Pakistan. This is an area where schooling has been difficult to set up due to many issues. I will share details with our Governors and with the rest of the school so that we can make real links with the teachers and children. Watch this space for more details.

Our Hockey team have lots to celebrate as they have now won four out of five games and have been promoted to the 1st division! Well done Chloe, our top goal scorer! Also, please see the rest of the names below for the team members.

Our Spooky Disco tickets will be on sale form the office from Monday. The price for these are £1 each and all children need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please see below for timings.

Please see the reverse of this newsletter for our self evaluation ‘checklist’ to see if  you / your child ticks all the boxes for being ‘school ready’.



We are very proud of all of our achievements to date. On Tuesday last week 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 on Tuesday evening!
