Everton Primary School

Everyone. Everyday. Everlasting.

February 2022

It has been a very successful month for the children at Everton Primary School. Our Indoor Athletics team took part in the Bassetlaw Finals and finished a very credible 7th out of the 25 schools that took part in the competition overall. In addition to this, our Orienteering Team competed in the Bassetlaw Finals and finished a lofty 2nd out of the 15 schools that took part. We are so proud of our children’s sporting achievements so far during this academic year.


As part of our children’s wider development, in the last week before half term, the whole school focused on Children’s Mental Health Week. We learnt about how music can affect our mood and wellbeing; about staying safe online through Safer Internet Day (Tuesday 8th February); the use of grounding techniques using our senses; and took part in SCARF Day (Thursday 10th February) – where we wore our favourite scarves to school in order to raise awareness of children’s mental health.


Class 2 has now been fully decorated and the class are making full use of their new interactive whiteboard. We continue to update our ‘Achievement Board’ in school weekly to celebrate our pupils’ achievements both in and out of school – it is amazing the range of different awards and activities that our children succeed and take part in.


As we try to integrate even more into the local community, the school has started a new Parent Teacher Association (PTA), so please listen out for upcoming fundraising events in and out of school in the lead up to Easter. With that in mind, if anyone has any books that they no longer need and could donate to Everton Primary School, then we would really appreciate them in order to raise money for our library project as part of World Book Day - full details will be sent later today via Dojo.


Another recent project to get parents more involved with school has been to start a parent’s football club once a week, where I play football with any parents that wish to enjoy a friendly game whilst having the chance to discuss anything ‘school’ with me in a less formal setting.


If you have any ideas of how you, or another member of the community, could help or support our school then please contact me via the school office.


Best Wishes,

Andrew Green
