Everton Primary School

Everyone. Everyday. Everlasting.

October 2021

It has been a lovely last few weeks in school. Class 1 became the first class since Christmas 2019 to go to Everton’s Holy Trinity Church in order to celebrate Harvest. We were incredibly fortunate that our Class 1 parents were also able to attend, watch and even take part in the singing of our Harvest hymns. The children performed several hymns of their own with actions in addition to a dramtised reading of ‘The Little Red Hen’.


Rev. Becky Hancock spoke to the children about ‘sharing the load’ and this was very poignant for the children in school, who have been very supportive of each other since returning to school full time in September. In fact, our new ethos at school is that once you are a member of Everton Primary School you are part of our ‘EVERTeam’, and when you leave and move on you will remain part of our ‘FOREVERTeam’. We want our children to know that they are all important to this school and our community; can rely upon each other; and are always safe, cared for and welcome here, not only today, but for the rest of their lives.


At school we have been able to gain an amazing insight into the talents of the children at Everton Primary School through our Achievement Board. Over the first half term lots of children have come forward to have their photo and achievements placed on our Achievement Board. Children have displayed their talents in drama, swimming, gymnastics, dancing, gardening, reading and Brownies amongst others! It is incredibly important that we celebrate all our children’s talents and achievements and individualism.


Congratulations must also go to our school Tag Rugby team who finished a commendable fifth in the recent tournament at Retford Rugby Club. We actually defeated the eventual champions in our group game! 


I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our parents/carers for your patience and support regarding parent consultations over the past couple of days.
