Welcome to

Crestwood Park Primary School

Be the best you can be

Welcome to the last remote newsletter of the school year!

We've had a fantastic last day of the week, the term and the year! It has been a year like no other and is one that we will never forget. As this academic year draws to a close we begin to look forward to September and how things will hopefully get a little bit more 'back to normal'. 

As a reminder, children are back in school on Thursday 3rd September. The Risk Assessment and all plans including timings can be found here or via our website- go to 'Our School' and all information can be found on the first page. 

The plans explain how we will reduce the contact between class 'bubbles', how we will keep children safe by staggering break times and time in the lunch hall and how we will make sure assemblies carry on taking place without too many people gathering together.

If you have any questions after reading the plans, please do not hesitate to get in touch- we will pick up telephone messages until the 28th and then after that we are contactable via our 'info' email address.

Some key information for the first days back...

For dropping off and picking up times we ask that children are accompanied by one adult only.

We will allow a window of 20 minutes for dropping off and picking up at the start and end of the day, to allow parents to socially distance from others (8:40am- 9:00 and 3:10- 3:30). 

We also ask that children use classroom doors on arrival so they can enter and exit school without unnecessary contact with others. 

Happy Retirement!

Today marked the last day of Mr Jeffrey's twelve years of loyal service to our school as Site Manager. He has been a wonderful 'caretaker' and true friend to us all in the Crestwood Park family. We are going to miss him very much indeed and we are sure you will want to join us in wishing him a very happy, healthy and relaxing retirement. 

Goodbye and good luck Mr J- we wish you all the best for your new chapter. 

Our Super Sixes!

Today we also said 'goodbye' to our Year Six Class. Although the day was different to the normal 'Leavers' celebrations, the children performed their song perfectly and enjoyed the presentation of their gifts. If you haven't already seen the video of the 'leavers' song, you can click here or go to 'Our school' and 'Pupil Pages' on the website. If you can't see the assembly, it means you need to log in to the website (using the 'log in' box at the top right of the website home page). 

Next week we will add photographs taken from the presentation and we'll let Year 6 parents know when these are ready to view.

Year Six Enterprise Success

Last week our amazing Year 6 entrepreneurs saw their creations 'fly off the shelves' and make a huge profit of £200! We are very pleased to say that after spending some of the money on pizza and KFC for a lunchtime treat yesterday, the children decided to donate the rest to 'Oakleigh Healthcare' in Stourbridge- a care home who provide specialist care for individuals with learning disabilities, autism, brain injury, physical disabilities and mental health problems.

We are so proud of our Year Six team who researched local charities before deciding on this worthwhile cause. After informing the charity of the children's donation today, we were even more pleased to find out that the Manager of the home was a Crestwood Park pupil herself!

Well done Year 6- we really are very proud of you all. 

Keeping our WELLBEING in Good Shape!

Keeping Active!

Elliott (Year 4) is certainly keeping his eye on the target and keeping active at the same time! Well done Elliott- a medal is on it's way!

This week's book review...

...is written by Cooper (Year 4)

And this week's poem chosen by Mrs Cadman is...

The Seaside

Are we nearly there?

Can you see the sea?

Who will be ready first?

Me! Me! Me!


Does the sand tickle?

Down by the sea

Who can make footprints?

Me! Me! Me!


The seagulls are crying,

‘Shush,’ says the sea.

Who dares put a toe in?

Me! Me! Me!


By Jo Peters

SAFE Sparks!
