Duston Eldean Primary School

Helping your Child

Parent helpers

We really do appreciate your help in the classroom and on trips and visits. Helpers are asked to assist with things such as: cooking, art and craft, library sessions, sports events, and reading with children, as well as general classroom support. Please volunteer by letting the Head Teacher or Class Teacher know how and when you would like to join us.

All helpers are checked through the Children's Barred List procedures, and we ask that they complete a Disclosure and Barring Service Form, in line with current legislation.

Visiting School

There are many special occasions when parents are invited to see what we are doing in school. Your child will invite you on a pupil tour of the school at some point in the year, when they will explain all that happens in their day. During the year you will be invited to join us in a variety of assemblies, performances, concerts and seasonal celebrations.

School PTA

Our active PTA plays an important part in linking parents and the school. Staging for school shows and assemblies, a new sound system, outdoor play equipment and an outdoor classroom have all been provided thanks to the generosity of the Association. It puts on events such as the Summer Fair, Children's Discos, and the Teddybears’ picnic.

‘We meet to foster a sense of community and to discuss ways of enriching the lives of the children at Eldean. All ideas and contributions are welcomed. Do join us!’

When children start school, they begin an adventure. They have excited, inquisitive minds and unfortunately, remembering to pick up a jumper or a drinks bottle can often be low on their priority list when far more exciting opportunities are beckoning them.

Many a parent has searched for their child’s clothing, lunchbox, P.E. kit, drinks bottle, sun hat and much more at the end of a school day! This is where My Nametags steps in to help prevent a frustrated parent!

My Nametags provides personalised nametags for labelling children’s clothes and belongings, with 98% customer satisfaction. Parents can label clothes, lunchboxes, drink bottles and much more with iron-on or sticker-based tags, which helps to reduce your lost property.
