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.
Dear Children, Parents and Carers.
Welcome back, school re-opens for children on Wednesday 3rd September 2014.
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.
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,

Year six have recently visited Crucial Crew with lots of other year 6 classes from South Yorkshire.
We learnt about how to be safe on public buses when travelling around Doncaster.
Through role plays, we also learnt how to contact the emergency services. Members of the fire service warned us about the danger of hoax calls and taught us what to do if there is a fire in our house.
Finally, we took part in a trial in a magistrates court. We all took different roles in the court and learnt what happens when children have to go to court.
Back at school, we are continuing to learn about road safety, cyberbullying, first aid and the emergency services in our PSHE lessons and assemblies.
We would like to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to Friends of Edenthorpe Hall for their
continued fundraising. At Christmas time, they donated £500 to school to purchase
games for each class to use during wet playtimes. The toys and games were
delivered from Santa to each class and we had a fantastic response from the

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.
