Merry Christmas

We had a lovely end of term Community Get Together at The Cathedral today.  The children were fabulous.

The Central School Team wishes you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.

We look forward to seeing you all again on 6th January 2020.

Nursery learning

The children have been busy with Christmas activities. They have been making Christmas cards, wrapping presents and painting ice blocks.

” I need a big piece of paper for a big present and a little piece of paper when wrapping little present.”

The pupils enjoyed taking part in Christmas community singing. We had a Christmas party on Monday with a special visitor.

”I love Santa and Santa is a nice man”.

The children listened to the Nativity story and were able to sequence the story by themselves.

”Presents Wise Men gave baby Jesus were frankincense and myrrh. Myrrh rhymes with purr.”

On Wednesday we went to the Eden Court to watch ”Crunch”. The children were very engaged and took part in the show.

Please remember we are going to the Cathedral tomorrow. We will leave nursery around pm. The Community Get together event will finish at 2:15pm. You are welcome to collect your child from the Cathedral.

Christmas jumpers

Are your Christmas jumpers looking a little small? Won’t do another year? Don’t throw them out just yet! Mrs Cameron is going to be collecting all Christmas clothing in January and then selling it at next years Christmas Fare. This is a great way of avoiding waste and saving money. All sizes welcome.

Nursery information

The children will be going to watch Crunch at Eden Court tomorrow afternoon.  Please can you ensure your child has appropriate clothing for the wet weather, as we will be walking to Eden Court. We will be back for 2:30pm.

Central Primary School needs your help!

Our playground has been under discussion for some time and we want your help to turn it into a playground to be proud of.

We aim to encourage children to use their imagination and develop their creative skills. We want our pupils to enjoy a healthy balance of structured and unstructured play in their leisure time. Playing allows children to develop a sense of well-being, develops their emotional responses and improves their interpersonal skills. It involves exploration and creativity, helping children think in a flexible manner, developing the creative process, language skills, and learning and problem solving skills.

We want to use locally sourced recycled goods and we have some brilliant ideas, can you help us turn this into a reality?

Here are some of our ideas:


More ideas can be found at – which has downloadable step by step instructions.

This is an ambitious project and as such we will need lots of help, if you or anyone you know can help please talk to either school or the parent council, we will need, project manager, joiners, handymen, artists, resources and ideas and a commitment to see this through. We already know we have the best parents and we can do this together for our children.

A massive thank you to Thomas Adam, Artur Guzowski and Peter Taylor from VolkerInfra who have donated goods to this great cause!

Thank you in advance for your support. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Bring on the endless play and learning opportunities.
