We have had a lot of fun on our Super Learning Day with the teachers and children. This took place on Friday 10th February. The theme was ’Children Leading on Learning’ as we invited children to put themselves forward to lead on our workshops with the Subject Leaders. Special lanyards were ordered for our ‘Eldon Ex-perts’ to wear whilst they were being teachers! See below for children who lead and their subject areas too.

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!
