Welcome to Eldon Primary School                                   Headteacher: Azra Butt

Headteachers' Welcome


Over the past two weeks staff and children launched ‘The Big Draw’ on the theme of ‘It’s Our World’. We have a super display of children’s work in the school hall and another in our corridor. When you are in school, do pop in and see the children’s work for yourselves.

On Wednesday morning, we have our Open Morning for the community and particularly for parents wanting to send their children to our school for our September 2015 intake. I know some of our existing parents will want to have a look around too. The timings are 9.30a.m. onwards until 11.30a.m.

Our Defibrillator has arrived in school and staff were trained in last weeks staff meeting. Thank you parents and Eldon’s Social Gathering for organising the funds. We are looking for a central place in the school where we can locate the defibrillator so that it is with in easy access. Having said that, let’s hope we will never need to use it again!

Our next community social is taking place on Wednesday 22nd October. We are having a ‘spooky disco’ in school. 2.00p.m.—3.00p.m. for Nursery and Infant children. Year 1—Year 6 children can join us from 3.30p.m. until 5p.m. Tickets are on sale for £1 from the office.

I have some really exciting news to share with you. Some of you will know the school is planning a mini-double story extension to the side of the school. It’s the only free space that we have that is currently not used. This week, we have learned that the planning permission has been approved. We are planning for a ‘state of the art’ learning resource area for children (upstairs) and a resources area downstairs. Exciting times ahead!

Polite Notice: Some parents have complained about dogs on leads quite near to the school gate. Dogs are not allowed in school and it would be helpful if the entrance can be left clear too as some of our families and children are feeling intimidated.
