Leadership Team of the Year!

AMAZING NEWS!!!! Our Leadership Team...Mr Moss (Deputy Head Teacher), Mrs Sandland (Assistant Head Teacher) and myself all received a wonderful honour! We are ‘The Leadership Team of the Year!’ in the Northwest Educate Awards!!!! The children, teachers, staff, parents, Governors and of course the SLT are all delighted that the hard work over the past six years has been recognised. Many of you who have been part of this journey know first hand the many wonderful changes we have introduced, which has made our school community thrive! We will stop and pause for a while, whilst enjoying this wonderful ‘milestone’ but you probably already know that the momentum at Eldon will continue as we have so much more to accomplish for our community and your AMAZING children. I will pass on your congratulations to ALL the staff and pupils in school and our Governors as it is a HUGE team effort that have enabled us to achieve what we have with this award. Thank you parents for working with us to make Eldon the very special place that it is!

WE ARE GOLD!!! AGAIN!

Great news about another award!
We have been externally assessed and our teaching of Science has won a GOLD award!

This is our first academic award!
Well done all the teachers and in particular Mrs Sandland for co-ordinating Science so very well!

Kai's Special Donation

This morning we all congratulated Kai Parker for an amazingly generous gesture. After hearing about the plight of the children in our sponsor school, Noor Model School (Pakistan) he went home and got his toys and put them in a sack so we could donate them to the children at Noor Model School! We all feel that Kai has a HUGE HEART of GOLD! Well done Kai, we are all very proud of you! Thank you mum and sister Kacey for supporting him! Please visit our Twitter feed on our website for a picture!

Handwriting Fortnight

Next week we launch our ‘Handwriting Fortnight’. Handwriting does help children with their writing skills and hence the reason for focussing on this. All children will be having a go at two pieces of writing- a before and after piece following two weeks of handwriting practise and learning skills. Get ready for a celebration assembly on Monday 30th January at 2.30p.m.
