Welcome to

Crestwood Park Primary School

Be the best you can be

We've had a great week in school- there's been plenty of activity inside classrooms and outside on our playgrounds and track. We finished the day with the International Day of Families where children have been celebrating their families and thinking about what 'family' means to them. By considering families both close to us and around the world, children have been learning about the diversity of families and how each one, no matter what, is incredibly important.


Well-Being Day

We have been absolutely amazed by the amount you have raised so far...

....drum roll please...


...together we have raised over £2600!!!

Thank you all for your wonderfully generous sponsorship; we are truly grateful for your amazing support with our fundraising efforts! The children had such a fantastic experience and we will most definitely be putting our share of the money raised to good use...we will keep you posted!


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.

Fitness Friday is back!

Do you want to join a free fitness class that fits in with the school run?

Yes, we said FREE and yes ,it does fit around the school run!

Fitness friday will be starting after half term for adults from 8.50am - 9.20am. 

If you're interested, please speak to Mr Barnett...or just turn up on the day. Everyone is welcome. 

(If you have any unwanted gym equipment or know of anyone who would like to donate to the club, please let us know. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.)


Happy Birthday!

We would like to say a very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Harvey, Ethan, Georgina and Blake G who have celebrated their special day this week, or will be over the weekend.


School uniform

After half term we would like to resume 'normal' school uniform throughout the week. Therefore P.E kits should be brought into school in P.E bags and children will revert to getting changed at school. if children are tkaing part in after-school clubs, they should also wear their uniform during the day.

Could we also remind children that hooped earings should not be worn in school. 

Thank you for your support.

Please see the message from the DfE regarding attendance.

Summer term attendance expectations for schools

School attendance continues to be mandatory for all pupils and the usual rules on school attendance apply. This includes parents’ duty to ensure their child regularly attends school, and schools’ and local authorities’ ability to issue sanctions, including fixed penalty notices, for poor attendance.

We expect schools and local authorities to continue to communicate clear expectations around attendance to families, identify pupils at risk of disengagement and develop plans to re-engage them.

As restrictions begin to lift, we know some families may be looking to take holidays during term time. As usual, parents should plan their holidays around school breaks and avoid seeking permission to take their children out of school on holiday.

National Numeracy Day however is not just for children. The day has a range of Facebook events for adults that you can join. The events cover money confidence, careers and how to help children love numbers. There is also a National Numeracy challenge quiz for adults to do to help boost number confidence.
