Welcome to Richardson Endowed Primary School

P.T.F.A.

It's official.........our classroom is open!

Before Christmas we had a very special day here in school when we officially opened our new classroom. The classroom was opened by the Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Education, Councillor Kevin Gillott and Ian Thomas, the Director of Children Services for Derbyshire.

It was also lovely to welcome back the project manager Dee Hill and Kev Walker who was Team Leader throughout the duration of the build. We had a lovely assembly and were joined by Governors, members of the PTFA and parents who help in school.

It has been in all the local papers over Christmas, an example of the write up can be found by following the link below:

Christmas Catols at Asda 2014!

I had the pleasure of accompanying our choir this morning to Asda. They performed a number of carols for an hour and at the last count had raised over £150!

You could hear their wonderful singing the other side of the store and even the ladies on the bakery counter were joining in!

A massive thank you to our wonderful staff; Mrs Mason, Miss Hill, Mrs Walton and Mrs Evans for their hard work and skill.

Also, thank you to the PTFA, parents and grandparents for your support.

Finally, a huge thank you to our talented children for entertaining the community this morning and getting everyone in the Christmas spirit.

Shared Vision 2014-15

Our annual Shared Vision evening was held in school on Wednesday. All stakeholders were represented including; staff, pupils, parents, governors, members from the parish council and others from our school community. The School Council and PTFA were represented.

This year IanThomas, Strategic Director for Derbyshire County Council and our Senior Adviser, Carolyn Brearley also kindly gave up their time to be involved.

It was a wonderful event and was very skilfully led by our Chair of Governors, Sarah Armitage.

We celebrated successes from the previous year before looking at how we can 'stand out' as a school as we look to become an 'outstanding school at the heart of the community.'

We looked at what made us special as a school before looking ahead to what was positive and possible to achieve this year.

There were a number of good ideas including;

1. Using our new technology to enhance teaching and learning.
2. Improving learning environments inside and outside the school.
3. Improve resources across the school ready for inspirational learning.
4. Transform the hall so it is a vibrant, special place and the hub of the school.

This is our fourth Shared Vision session and it is wonderful to see how far we have come as a school since September 2011.

We were also very lucky to have talented artists Anthony Greentree and Lucy Truman who captured the event through drawings which will be brought to life around the school.....watch this space!

A massive thank you to all involved.

Enjoy some pictures below, more to follow.

Sports Day fun at Smalley

We had lots of fun last week at our annual sports day.

Children worked in their house teams and completed a wide range of events earning points.

This year there was a World Cup theme and Brazilian music was playing all afternoon whilst each team also adopted a country from this years tournament.

The winning house this year was Falcons.

Thank you to the PTFA for organising drinks for the children. Thank you also to all the parents for a wonderful turnout as usual to support our children.

A huge thank you to Mrs Naylor from Open Gate and her team of Sports Leaders, many of whom were ex Smalley Pupils.

Finally, a massive thank you to Mrs Shaw for organising the event. We really appreciate all the hard work that has gone into putting on an event like this.
