Welcome to Eldon Primary School                                   Headteacher: Azra Butt

Headteachers' Welcome


Many of you will have read the very exciting news about our discovery of a ‘time capsule’. I am absolutely delighted to confirm that it is indeed a piece of history dating back to 1886—April 24th to be precise! We were able to get into the ‘Royal Doulton Lambeth’ jar and have been bowled over with its contents. We have discovered five newspapers, three coins, details of the trustees and builders of the school and a rare stamp known as the ‘penny lilac’.  All of these items were indeed placed in the jar for us to discover! The children and staff have had the pleasure of seeing the artefacts and the local press and museum will be visiting school next week to inspect the contents of the jar. We will be sharing our news with local historians who have been in touch with the school wanting to find out more.  Who knows, we may even get some national coverage! Please click here to see some of the pictures of our discovery.

Our Nursery is expanding; we have a brand new ‘two year old’ room in our Nursery! Following the expansion of our Nursery to create additional spaces for two years olds—we have a few places still remaining.

Our Year 6 pupils have completed their SATs this week   They have all worked really hard and I’m sure they have all done very well. We should have the results at the beginning of July.

Year 4/5 are leading the way to safeguarding children when they are on the internet. Please take a look at Aniesha’s poster on the reverse of the newsletter. More posters will be shared over the coming weeks and displayed

around school. We will also be sharing our internet safety policy with you soon.

Next week its ’Great to be Me’ week. I will be writing to you with further details about our special ’Super Learning Day’ on Friday. Watch out for the letter on Monday!
