About our school – learning together

Ecclesfield Primary is situated in the north east of Sheffield and is a large, popular school which attracts many pupils out of the catchment area. There are two classes in each year group from Reception to Year 6.


As a school we are open, honest, friendly and conscientious.  The children’s interests are at the forefront of everything we do. Potential and ambition are encouraged and nurtured within both pupils and staff. We pride ourselves on the achievements of everyone involved with the school.

Outdoor Learning @ Ecclesfield

Our Foundation Stage outdoor classroom is taking shape. This week, the children have enjoyed experimenting and collaborating on our new
painting window.
The pupils at Ecclesfield are really enjoying their new outdoor classroom which they have named ‘
The Wildlife Watch’. Again, a big thank you to Fletchers Bakery who supported us in this project.




Parent and Child Breakfast Club

Hannah Smith - Friday, May 06, 2016

Parent and Child Breakfast Club
Over the past few weeks each Friday, we have trialled a new breakfast club for parents and children to have breakfast together in our small dining room.

It has been a great success and the parents and children who have attended have commented on how delicious the food is and how lovely it is to spend time with their children in the mornings. As such, we are continuing our Parent and Child Breakfast Club on a Friday morning (doors will open at 7.50am). All the food will be prepared and cooked by Taylor Shaw, our school meals provider.
Please note; This breakfast club is not supervised as parents are expected to remain for the duration with their child.
Our usual breakfast club is still running from 7.30am where parents are able to drop their children off.

MAST (Multi Agency Support Team)

Raising a family is the most important job anyone can do. It has amazing rewards but it
can also be very challenging. At some point you may need some extra help.

Your local Multi Agency Support Teams (MAST) are here to help you and your family. 
Every year, MAST support 1000s of families by delivering around 60 parenting
programmes, whole family support and in their 16 Children's Centres.

MAST are going to be running a drop in session for parents at Ecclesfield. The session is for parents to drop in and ask for advice or support with things such as  housing, benefits,
further education, behaviour support and many more professional services.
The drop in session will be on

Tuesday 17th May, 1.15pm—2.45pm

Please come into school via the main entrance.
For further information about how MASTs support families, have a look at the following website:


Warm Weather Warnings

Hannah Smith - Friday, May 06, 2016


As the sun is shining,  we would just like to remind you to send your children to school with fresh water in a named water
bottle EVERY DAY
!  It is vital that we replace the fluids we lose when we breathe and sweat. Obviously, when it is warmer, we sweat more so need to replace more fluid.

Also, please can you ensure the children bring a sun hat (again, clearly labelled) to school as we love learning and playing
outdoors and want to protect our heads from the sun and heat. Please apply sun cream to pupils before school, if you would like to send sun cream for your child to reapply, please ensure it is labelled. Please note that staff are not able to apply sun cream to pupils.
