Welcome to

Crestwood Park Primary School

Be the best you can be

Although we've been in and out of school a bit this week, it's been a busy and fun-packed few days. Our well-being day today was a real hit and children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the fitness cicuit and demonstration from Sam... we all left the hall feeling really inspired...and really out of breath!

Thank you to families who shared their 'screen free' activities with us- it looks like lots of you kept yourself busy with various indoor and outdoor fun!

This week we welcomed a new teaching assistant to the Crestwood Park family- Miss Aime Williams has joined the Reception teaching team; we are sure you will all make her feel welcome and that she will soon feel part of the family.

Finally, can we please ask that you discourage children from bringing toys in to school. We've had a number of incidents now where toys and teddies have been broken or lost. They can also cause distractions and arguments between children. If your son or daughter needs a certain object in school, please discuss it with the teacher or with a member of the pastoral team and we can work out the best thing to do. Thankyou for your support with this.

Well-Being Day

Friday Fitness with Sam Oldham - GB Gymnast

The children and staff have had a fantastic 'Healthy Well Being Day' led by the famous GB athlete Sam Oldham. He shared with us details of his training and life as a GB gymnast! The link below explains a little more about the event he organised for us!


Every child has taken part in a fun fitness circuit alongside Sam today. You can still sponser them if you wish. This can be done on-line or alternatively complete the sponsorship form. Proceeds will help us to buy sports equipment for our school so any sponsorship would be hugely appreciated! 


What a Berry Bike Ride!

As well as the fun fitness circuits, the children were all given a chance to ride the cycle smoothie bike... ask them what they thought of the delicious smoothie drink they helped to make!

Royal Mail stamp competition

Children will be taking part in this competition during lessons next week. We look forward to sharing some of the designs in newsletters, before half term.

Denim for Dementia - Friday 21st May

On Friday 21st May we are supporting the 'Denim for Dementia' campaign.  It's simple to get involved; all we are asking is for pupils to wear their jeans on this day and bring in a donation to Alzheimer's Society. (Alzheimer's Society are recommending £2 but any contribution would be greatly received.)
During the day, children will be learning a little bit more about this topic; we know lots of families are touched by Dementia and at Crestwood Park we know how important it is for children to have a good understanding of the older generation and some of the difficulties that may affect them.

Looking after our WELL-BEING

This week we thought we would share some ideas for you to use as a family.

Children benefit so much from routines. It gives them a sense of security and control within their environment. When children feel that life is organised and predictable they feel safe and looked after especially through stressful times.


Have a lovely week and look after each other xx

The Pastoral Team.

Should any parent whose child has just completed a  'Little Buddy' group wish to have feedback from the pastoral team,  please contact them so that a telephone appointment can be made.

You can contact us via the school office and ask to speak with Mrs Priest or Mrs Redfern.

Children's Screen Free Activities

Kind Hearted Donation

How amazing is our Lillie in Year 2! She recently made the decision to donate a length of her hair to the Little Princess Trust who specialise in making wigs for children. 

The Little Princess Trust says...."Sharing your hair with children and young people experiencing the devastating effects of hair loss is an incredible thing to do and really does make a difference to the lives of our young wig recipients".

And finally,

We have had the first draft of our virtual tour. The school (and the children of course!) look amazing! We just need to check a few things before sharing the film with you in next week's newsletter.

We hope the weather is a bit kinder over the weekend. Please look after yourselves and stay safe.

See you on Monday!
