Welcome…

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.

Red Nose Day 2015

This year for Red Nose Day our School Council organised a talent show. Each class had auditions and then two acts were chosen to perform on stage in front of the whole school.

 

We discovered lots of hidden talents across all year groups. The judges had a very difficult decision.

 

During the deliberation some of our Year 6 pupils had organised a fun way of raising some extra money for Comic Relief. The children persuaded some of the staff to raise money to avoid having shaving foam thrown into their faces. The two members of staff (Mrs Pick and Mr Copley) with the least amount of sponsorship took the punishment with a smile. Amazingly, the year 6 pupils raised £123.

Thank-you to the teachers who volunteered for the event.

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)

  • OFSTED
  • 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).

Building Learning Power (BLP)

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.
