Bishop Wilton Primary school pupils have been practicing their Maypole Dancing again this year,  the final production was at The Spring Fair at The village Hall on Saturday, the children all had great fun and the audience was impressed at the skill of plaiting and unplaiting the ribbons – without knotting it up!
Well done and huge Thanks to everyone involved.

Easter Service and Head Teachers Award

Our school attended our annual school church Service to Celebrate Easter at St Edith’s, Bishop Wilton. The informative service was led by Canon Rodney interacted with children’s reading and poetry. During this Service, Our important Head Teacher’s award was presented to year 6 pupil Tom. Tom has worked very hard to achieve the Head Teacher’s award, it is only presented termly so it is a great honour to receive. Tom was so very proud to receive the award and still can’t quite believe it.

Bishop Wilton History re-appears after 137 years!

A couple of weeks ago, a lady called Lyn emailed our school to inform us that she has been to an antiques fair in Wetherby with her grandchildren and came across a cross stitch sampler that was created by a young lady called Kate Banks, aged 10 in 1880, Bishop Wilton Primary school. Lyn sent a photograph and informed us that this sampler was for sale in an antiques shop in Selby – she kindly thought we would be interested in gaining this.

I contacted Selby Antiques, the antiques shop came across the sampler from a house clearance sale in a village nearby called Breighton, (Bubwith) the sampler was still for sale, I reserved the item until collection was made.

We are very proud and happy to have a piece of history back in our school all these years later – if only it could talk!

We are now doing some research into Kate Banks and our school and village history.

Many Thanks to all involved in this amazing find.

Bishop Wilton Advent Trail Map 2017

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of you who have chosen to take part in this festive, community venture. This year’s participants have chosen a Christmas song or carol as a focus for their Advent Window/ Garden; some have picked out particular lyrics they wish to highlight and interpret, others have gone for the whole song. Every evening a new window will be ‘lit’ and many will remain lit up to early January. We hope you enjoy the growing collection of window or garden scenes throughout December and thank you for taking the time to wander around our beautiful village.

Please find attached map for distribution.

School Dinners

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement. Its good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal.

Spending Money

The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
