Welcome to Bishops Down Primary & Nursery School
Bishops Down Primary School is currently closed due to the national lockdown and is only open for children of key workers or children who are vulnerable.
All children return to school on Monday, 8th March.
Our Nursery school has remained open at all times.
Children's Mental Health Week
Children at Bishops Down were fully engaged during w/c 1st February with a full timetable of activities to support the charity Place2Be and Children’s Mental Health Week. Place2Be provides counselling and mental health support and training in UK schools.
Our pupils, whether at school or home, plus their families, engaged in activities inlcuding a keep fit session, sing & sign, yoga, exploring nature, learning to draw and took part in Inside Out Day - wearing an item of clothing inside out. Be kind always...you never know how someone is feeling on the inside.
Home Learning - Bishops Down Children Keep on Shining!
Bishops Down children continue to shine with their amazing resilience and positive attitudes towards learning. Whether they are at home working virtually on Teams or are in class because their parent/s are key workers, we applaud them! We are proud of every single child - we know they are doing their best and that's all we ask!
Winter Writing Competition
We were delighted by the many and varied entries received for the Winter Writing Competition. Our Literacy Lead, Mrs Holliday, had a great time reading all the creative ideas from the children. Thank you to everyone who entered, the standard was very high!
Mrs Holliday could only choose 3 winners, it was tricky as the entries were so good, but in the end it is congratulations to Bianca, Kaiya and Ben who all won prizes.
SODA - What is it?
During this time of remote learning, children's screen time has increased. We want to make sure our pupils have a break from the screen at home. One afternoon a week will be SODA!(switch off devices afternoon)! Click Here to see the ideas that our children can try during their SODA time.
