October School News

Our Grand Opening

Our newly refurbished school was officially opened on 9 October by staff, pupils, governors and contractors who were joined by James Cartlidge MP. We also had press coverage of the opening and so we appeared in the East Anglian Daily Times last week as they were keen to see and hear about the changes and how they will benefit the efficiency of our school building. Two of our school council representatives “cut the ribbon” at the opening!

Year 6 Environmental Letters

Whilst James Cartlidge was with us, two of our year 6 pupils took the opportunity to hand over their letters to the MP explaining how they felt we all could help our environment. They are currently working on the environment in class.

Harvest Assembly

Reverend Elke Cattermole joined the children at Bildeston Primary School for their Harvest assembly today, which was slightly different from their usual Harvest assembly. Due to the COVID pandemic and social distancing rules, pupils had to stay in their classrooms in their bubbles and the assembly was broadcast virtually which included wonderful parent participation!

Children brought donations of non-perishable foods which were displayed in their classroom bubbles. These donations will be collected together and will be donated to Bildeston Food Bank. Thank you to everyone for their generosity.


Thank you to the Bikeability team who came three times over the last few weeks (due to the rain!!) to ensure that our Year 5 pupils completed the necessary cycle training to ensure that they continue to stay safe on our roads. Every child was handed a certificate and a badge for their participation.
