Welcome to Eldon Primary School             LEP SCHOOL OF THE YEAR!                                Eldon expects the best...Lets be the best that we can be!

What's happening at Eldon?


Well done Year 2 who, as part of our 130th Birthday celebrations, took us back in time to share the 1980’s as part of our decades assemblies! We were treated to a feast of 1980’s delights including fashion, music and sporting facts.

Well done to all the children in Year 2, Mrs Sandland and Miss Calvert for a very entertaining assembly! Year 1/2 are planning the 1970’s as we speak!

Our decades disco takes place on Wednesday next week. Thank you Eldon’s Social Gathering for planning this and the traditional Lancashire cuisine is going to tantalise everyone’s taste buds! We are all looking forward to this event. Please buy tickets at the office for £1! Wednesday’s Infant clubs and Choir club is cancelled due to the Disco. Junior clubs and our normal paid after school club will continue. Children attending the paid after school club will be able to participate in the Disco if they buy a ticket from the office. Please ensure the staff know their dietary requirements. They will need some pennies to buy some food.

Thank you for your entries for Eldon’s Bake Off. We have one celebratory judge attending to sample the food on the 1st March. Lisa Allen from Northcote

will be visiting us and helping to judge the entries. The short listed children and parents have been notified. Please see below for details! The next stage is for Julie—our very own chef in the kitchen and a handful of children talent spotted for their own baking skills, to judge the next stage straight after the half term break.

Staff and Governors are putting the final touches to our mission statement next Friday afternoon as part of our INSET day. Our children are helping by putting together the 130 MUST learning experiences that every child SHOULD be able to enjoy at Eldon, during their time here. This information will be displayed in school and will help to prioritise our final statement. Some great suggestions are emerging!

E-safety day next Tuesday!








We are very proud of all of our achievements to date. 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!
