Welcome to Mrs Ethelston's Primary School

Welcome to Mrs Ethelston's Primary School

At Mrs Ethelston's, we are proud of our friendly and family atmosphere where we get to know each child whilst fostering a sense of community responsibility. 

Our Christian values underpin everything we do, providing a safe, supportive and encouraging environment in which we recognise each unique individual. We set high standards of achievement and behaviour whilst ensuring that the childrens school days are enjoyable.

I hope you find the information on our website useful and informative, but obviously the best way to get a real feel about us is to come and visit Mrs Ethelston's, look around and meet the children and staff.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

Cross Country News

Each year, Stockland School holds 4 cross country races and last Wednesday was the first of the 2014/15 race series. The Stockland Races have quite a reputation; they are known for the mud, the falls and the tears but they are also known for the cheers, the team spirit and the cake!  There were 15 children from Mrs Ethelston's who took on the Stockland challenge and only 7 had competed in a race before. Alice, Sophie A, Cerys and Kitty ran for the year 3/4 girls, Aidan, Matthew E and Finlay made up the boys year 3/4 team. Phoebe, Abi, Isabelle and Chloe ran for the year 5/6 girls. With Phoebe coming first and all the girls finishing in the top 13, their team could be in the first or second team position. Will, Rafferty, Louis W and Merlin ran for the boys year 5/6 team. As always, the support from the parents, Miss Craddock and the children means that every runner gets cheered and encouraged as they make their way, exhausted, uphill to the finish.

Sleepover Fun

Year 6 enjoyed their sleepover on Friday 26th September.  They took part in lots of team-building activities, had dinner at the beach and slept at school.  Click on the heading for more photos.

Millionaire Reader

Aidan has become Heron's first word millionaire this year!  He read more than a million words in September - a real achievement.  Well done Aidan.
