Headteacher's Welcome

At East Rainton Primary School the staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating, exciting environment where everyone feels valued and safe. Everyone has the opportunity to reach their potential within a supportive learning environment.

We teach through a structured topic based curriculum with a strong focus on the skills within literacy and numeracy. We aim to develop an interest in learning as well as respect for others.

We have high expectations of all children enabling them to become excellent citizens in the future. It is through a supportive partnership approach that we can work with children and their families to achieve the best for every child.

Traidfare

This week we had a visit from the charity Traidfare. We learned all about the importance of fair trade with other countries. We looked at how chocolate is traded.

Kepier Choir Festival

The second choir festival took place at Kepier school on Wednesday 7th December.  The children from all the schools were fantastic and sang beautifully.  Kepier school choir started the concert off, followed by our choir here at East Rainton, then Eppleton and ending with Newbottle. The children were able to see how they could could continue their singing once they leave Primary school and move to secondary school by joining a secondary choir.

Thank you to all the parents/relatives and friends who supported the children-it makes the event even more special to them-I do hope you were lucky in the raffle?!  Mrs Hall took some lovely photographs of the event.

The Choir sing in the Cathedral

What an amazing day the choir had today at Durham Cathedral! They rehearsed all morning and perormed during the afternoon. The children worked very hard and should be extremely proud of themselves! Thank you to all the parents/guardians who helped the children learn all the words for the songs - these were really tricky to learn! Thank you also to all those parents/relatives and friends that came to see the children perform- it made it even more special for the children.

Unfortunately I was not allowed to take photographs of the actual performance but we did find a few opportunities throughout the day.  You can access the Cathedral's Facebook page which has an official photograph of the day.

When asking the children how they enjoyed the day, they said it was an amazing experience which is great to hear. They also loved the fact that they stored their lunches and coats in a room that was used in the Harry Potter movies!

I do hope we have more opportunities to perform in the Cathedral in the future and after today's performance, I am sure we will be in the running to take part again. 

Well done to everyone of the children!

Mrs Curry
