On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, welcome to the new Edenthorpe Hall Primary School website. We hope you find the site useful and informative.

Parent Forum

The first parents’ forum met on Monday 15th December 2014 and was attended by Mrs Mahoney, Miss Rolph, Mrs Garbutt (Chair of Governors) and a group of our parents.

Mrs Mahoney outlined the structure the forum would take; it is an opportunity for parents to engage with school and to voice their opinions on a variety of matters that effect school. The forum will take place every half term at varying times to allow as many parents as possible to attend the meetings.

Some of the strengths of the school were identified:

  • Commitment by teachers
  • Improvement of SEN support
  • Availability of staff in the mornings before school

The following matters were also discussed (and will inform future meetings)

  • Communication
  • After school clubs
  • Behaviour Policy
  • Safety in the playground
  • New curriculum and assessment
  • Updating the format and accuracy of the newsletter
  • Parking
  • Keeping the areas near to school cleaner
  • Resources in school

It was agreed that the next forum will focus on communication (date and time – to be agreed).

Welcome back!

Dear Children, Parents and Carers.

Welcome back, school re-opens for children on Wednesday 3rd September 2014.

New Starters
We would like to extend a warm welcome to the new children joining our school in Foundation Stage and also new starters throughout school.
Our new teaching staff are Miss Eade, Miss Joyce and Mr Cartwright.
We also have three new midday supervisors starting in September- Mrs Atherton, Mrs Wright and Mr Taylor.
We are pleased to inform you that Mrs Sykes has returned to Edenthorpe Hall Primary and she will be supporting staff training and development throughout school and also teaching for one day a week in Year groups 2,3 and 5.

New Curriculum
We will be implementing the new National Curriculum in 2014. All staff have received training on areas of the curriculum that have changed and have incorporated the required changes into their planning. As a school, we deliver our teaching through a topic based approach as we find this engages children and they become excited by their learning. This will continue and we have enjoyed refreshing the topics to incorporate the necessary changes. Please see your child’s class pages for further information.

We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday,
Mrs Sanderson

Building Learning Power (BLP)


thinking cap

At Edenthorpe Hall Primary we aim to develop our pupils learning power, not just so they can complete school learning more easily and effectively, but so they will leave school with a general purpose and set of habits and attitudes which will serve them well in all areas of life. Below are information leaflets which explain what BLP is, how we are implementing it at Edenthorpe Hall Primary and how you can further support your child’s learning at home.
