On Friday 10th January the Fire Safety Officer, visited the school, to deliver a talk to to class 1 followed by class 2. The pupils were engaged in discussion about how to keep safe in their homes, preparing an escape plan with their families and the importance of fire alarms and checking them weekly. They also watched an animated slide show which supported the content of the presentation.

Pupils were sent home with an informative Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service leaflet plus a ’10 great reasons to become a Fire Fighter flyer.


At the end of the talk Abbie quoted ‘I didn’t know that the dogs in the show were real dogs and that they went to places to help find out how the fires were started. Mrs B asked Sharon if the dogs could come and visit us at school but she said that they were so busy helping the fire fighters that it would be hard to choose which schools they could visit.’

Christmas 2019

As part of the end of term Christmas celebrations the children performed their annual nativity in St Giles Church called ‘Strictly Nativitv’.  (Don’t forget to visit the schools Christmas display in the South Transept of the church). The performance was followed by the PTA ‘Pea & Pie Supper’ which this year came in the form of a hearty stew in a Yorkshire pudding, kindly prepared by Mrs Stubbs the schools catering officer. A huge thanks goes to Lower Hurst Farm who generously donated the meat. The evening was a massive success raising a fantastic £1727.40 after expenses for the PTA. Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets and donated in any way.

The following day the children enjoyed a visit to Buxton Opera house to watch the pantomime ‘Cinderella’. This was enjoyed by all who attended. “Oh No it wasn’t.” ” Oh Yes it was!”

On the final day of the term, the children performed a Christmas carol concert in school to governors, parents and members of the community. This was followed by a buffet lunch for the children and staff, a Christmas party with games and a visit from Santa and his elves! School closed at 3:30 for the Festive season.
