Year 6 and September  2020 Starters

Update from Miss Langridge - 6th June 2020

This week saw our wider reopening for Year 6, Year 1 and Year Reception children in addition to the classes we have provided for our Key Worker and Vulnerable  children throughout lockdown.  It was great to see so many smiling faces meet us as the gate - it made us realise again quite how much we have missed everyone.

We have worked incredibly hard to ensure that our school is a safe as possible and we are making adjustments on a daily basis as things arise.  We are very grateful to all the staff who have embraced a new style of teaching and of course to the children who have shown maturity during what is a tricky time.

We would also like to thank parents for their support, their gratitude and their understanding, especially when we need to change things.  

We do not know what is next - we can only predict and we are therefore making a range of plans to ensure that we are ready for the next announcement.

September 2020 seems a long way off but we are listening and we are prepared to do what ever it takes to get back to some sense of normality.

Take a look at some of the areas of the school to see what it looks like now!

In the meantime remote learning still continues for our children who are remaining at home.  Our team of teaching staff are continuing to "google meet" and phone children throughout the week as well as providing activities and learning for the children to complete on learning.  

Learning Packs are also available each week for children who are unable to work online.

Well done Zac!

Zac Painter in year 5 held a plant & book sale in Eggborough village last weekend, he grew the plants from seed himself, and asked for book & toy donations and raised a whopping £735, to be split between our school & Doncaster & Bassetlaw hospital trust.

Update from Miss Langridge 21st May

Wednesday 6th May 2020

The children are all currently using the internet far more than would have ever imagined at the moment and with teachers starting Google Meets we would like to remind the Children and Parents about how to keep safe on line.

Below are some useful sites that provide plenty of guidance on how to ensure your child is not at risk online.  Please take the time to read and observe.

Thanks Miss L

You may have heard about enterprising young Isabelle H who featured in the Selby Times this week with her fundraising.  To date Isabelle has raised £370 for the NHS.   

We are very proud of you Isabelle!

Welcome to Whitley And Eggborough Community Primary School 

 May I welcome you and your child to the school.  Whitley and Eggborough school provides a high standard of teaching for all children who attend.  Children obtain good national test results and receive a well-rounded education from experienced, committed teachers and other staff.  As well as high levels of achievement, our philosophy is that children should enjoy learning and school life and feel part of the family atmosphere we work hard to foster.

Opened originally in 1877, the school was extensively rebuilt in the early 1970s and was recently further extended in 2011.  It has a pleasing open aspect to the rear of the buildings, looking over farm and woodland.  We have our own woodland and pond area, which we enjoy and use as an integral part of our curriculum work.

At Whitley and Eggborough School, our vision is provided through a rich range of memorable learning experiences, learning experiences that affect the emotions. In other words, learning that excites and charges experience, learning that makes our children feel something significant and provides experiences that they will remember for a long, long time. This is achieved through creating learning opportunities in the classroom that are inclusive, meaningful and thrilling. Learning moments and experiences engage the children and excite their emotions, send a shiver through the soul and put them in ‘challenging’ situations.

We want to encourage learning for the future and so it is vitally important that the children are happy, secure and that their learning journey is fun. 

If you require paper copies of any information available on our website, please contact the school office. We will be happy to provide these free of charge.  These can also be made available in large print, braille or another language.
