Red, White and Blue Day

Hannah Smith - Friday, October 02, 2015

Red, White and Blue Day @ Ecclesfield

Red, White and Blue Day is a chance for every school in the  country to show their support for the huge number of  service families in the UK. Service children are brave and adaptable, but they are also often under strain and can be vulnerable.

On 9th October we are asking pupils and staff at Ecclesfield to dress in red, white and blue. This is to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of The  Battle of Britain. During the day the pupils will be  taking part in different learning experiences to help commemorate the day. We are not asking for a donation on this day. If you would like further information on the work of the charity please take a look at their  website:

Sharp System

Hannah Smith - Thursday, September 10, 2015

Sharp System

Y4, 5 & Y6 have been introduced to our Sharp Website which is a reporting system for anti-social behaviour and bullying.  When using the Sharp System, the children can make a report informing Miss Smith about any incidents of bullying or anti social behaviour, including cyber bullying. Incidents from both inside and outside of school can be reported and Miss Smith will decide on the appropriate action.  Please click here to look at this reporting tool and discuss it with your child.

Extended Learning Opportunities

Hannah Smith - Thursday, September 03, 2015

We believe that all activities help children to learn and develop. Therefore we run a lot of out of hours activities to help the children develop new interests and stay safe. Click here to view our full timetable of extended learning opportunities for the first Autumn term. If you require any further information, please speak to our school office who will be more than happy to help.

Den Day

Sarah Short - Friday, June 05, 2015
Den Days was a huge success at Ecclesfield over the past couple of days. We are so proud of the effort the children have made when creating their dens to raise money for the 'Save The Children' charity.

The children should have brought home a sponsor form for them to collect sponsors safely. We hope that following the ‘Den Days,’ the sponsor money can be collected and returned to school by Monday 22nd June. Please make sure the sponsor form has your child's name on so we can arrange for their certificate.
