ESA had a stall at the Eldwick & Gilstead Gala and raffled two JET2 flights to any European destination. The winner was Mrs Mallison who was delighted as she is soon to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary! They are pictured here with Mrs Hepworth, the new ESA Chairperson.

BIG Walks to School

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather during Walk to School Week and walked to school. Thank you to everyone who joined me for the BIG walks to school. Photographs can be seen in the School Gallery.

We counted the steps taken and here are our results:

From Gilstead Rec From Agincourt Drive From Odette Court/Swan Avenue From Swan Avenue/Berwick Drive From Otley Road

We also looked for the most popular colour of car and the animal we see the most of. Here are our results:

  • The most popular car colour was RED!
  • The animals we saw the most of were BIRDS!

Why not carry out your own survey on the walk to school and let Mrs Rosano know your results!

Watch out for details of our Gala Parade entry for this year! We are hoping for a fabulous school turnout! 

Good News!

Good news! We have had an internal review by the Bradford Primary Improvement Partnership (BPIP). The outcomes were very encouraging categorising the school as “securely good” and acknowledging the progress made since our last Ofsted inspection. The children’s behaviour was described as “impeccable” and they acknowledged behaviour and safety across the school is outstanding. Well done to everyone involved.

Year 6 have worked incredibly hard in the run up to their SATs and all tried their best during SATs week. We are very proud of you all. Well done Year 6!

Cyber Awareness in School

Over the last few weeks children in key stage 2 (years 3 to 6) have been learning about Cyber Awareness. E-safety is always a big part of our ICT curriculum and this has been enhanced by PCSO Steve Atkinson coining into school to deliver lots of sessions.

PCSO Atkinson has spoken to the year groups about being safe online. The sessions will continue throughout the school year. Talk to your key stage 2 child about what they have learnt.

PCSO Atkinson also delivered two informative parent/carer sessions - unfortunately the turn out for these was low. The sessions were very informative and at times quite eye-opening. If you would be interested in attending a Parent/Carer Cyber Awareness session, please contact Mrs Rosano, Parental Involvement Worker. 

There are lots of useful e-safety resources available on our website (Parents menu) click here. We would urge you to take a look and support the E-safety work we deliver in school. If you have any queries or concerns please contact Mr Wain or Mrs Rosano who are CEOP Ambassadors (Child Exploitation & Online Protection)
