What a warm welcome there was at Donnington Snug today! โ˜•โค๏ธ

Don't forget Donnington Snug will be running during the Christmas Holidays too (Friday 23rd and Friday 30th of December 8:30-1:30).

Bring your children along and fill your boots! ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ

We would like to say a BIG thank you to Chris, Connor and Donnington & Muxton Parish Council for a fabulous first day!


Every child in school and nursery will be bringing home a special gift of a pair of gloves from us.

Staff have worked together to dress them as snowmen and we are really grateful to Primark for helping us source 170 pairs of gloves ,and the donations we have received to help pay for them. We hope they will help keep hands a little warmer in the extremely cold weather.

We would like to wish all our children, their families and everyone in our wider school community a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year

Some of our children have come across some magical little Christmas Gonks whilst out and about in Donnington. The children have been so excited to tell us all about it and have been so happy to give them a new home. โœจ ๐Ÿก

Somehow the Gonks have made their way into the school overnight. We canโ€™t wait to see if any of the children find them!

A massive thank you to Caron Taylor for sharing some extra Christmas Magic with us all โœจ๐Ÿฅฐ

Reminder for children in year 1 (Class 3 and 4)

Tomorrow (28th November) is our clay day! We will be having a fun day, learning how to use clay and making models.

Children need to come to school in old clothes. Please make sure children are wearing suitable shoes and are warm and cosy.


Our fabulous group of Staying Safe Superstars๐ŸŒŸ shared the work they have been doing so far about Online Safety, during our whole school assembly this morning!

And of course, our beloved Wishes and Worry Well made an appearance to remind the children how to share any wishes or worries they have

Look out for a piece of work the Staying Safe Superstars are putting together about for parents and children ๐Ÿ‘ฅ


The children in year 1 enjoyed a lovely walk around Donnington this afternoon. They went as part of their Geography lessons; looking at physical and human features, local shops, buildings, landforms, roads, houses and much more. The children spotted lots of different features and hope to go back to class to make a map of what they saw on their walk.

We are supporting Anti-bullying week again! Yesterday, Mrs Boddy was joined by the School Council and Safety Superstars and led our whole school assembly, introducing Anti Bullying Week 2022.

Over this week, children will be exploring friendships, which can be tricky as young children learn the rules of socialising, and how to handle minor disagreements in an appropriate way.

Other events include Odd Socks Day and Friendship Friday activities. Also, look out for this fabulous flyer made by the School Council and Safety Superstars that has been sent home!


Was your child born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019? They can start primary school in September 2023!
