08:45 Tuesday - Unfortunately due to extremely dangerous access routes to school (despite having the gritters in) the decision has been taken to close school again today.  We expect to be open tomorrow as a thaw is due today. Sincere apologies!

Autumn Term at

Livingstone Primary School!

We are looking forward to all of our Christmas celebrations over the next couple of weeks! Check the diary below for details.

A message from the Headteacher:

Dear Parents,

I am delighted on behalf of the staff, Governors and children to welcome you to Livingstone. We are a friendly and caring school and we work hard to secure good relationships with everyone in our community.

Every child is unique. We have high expectations of our pupils and will support each individual to realise their potential. We respect and value each child and family. When your child becomes a pupil at Livingstone then you become a member of the Livingstone family.

With your help, we will provide opportunities for your child to develop a full range of intellectual, social, physical and emotional abilities in a secure and stimulating environment. Our curriculum is broad and challenging with a strong focus on the basic skills of literacy, oracy and numeracy. We expect and achieve high standards of behaviour based on mutual respect. We have a dedicated and experienced staff who are always ready to help you and your child.

We have some remarkable young people at Livingstone - your children! I look forward to joining you on your child’s learning journey.

Welcome to Livingstone!

Yours sincerely

Mrs Linda Crombie
Headteacher

CHRISTMAS RECIPE

The children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 had a great time performing their Christmas show - Christmas Recipe. The children all worked really hard to learn the songs and performed brilliantly!

Children in Need!

On Friday 17th November we had a 'Spotacular' day raising money for Children in Need. We all dressed in our spottiest outfits for mufti and each class participated in their own fundraising activities as well. These included face painting, biscuit sale and parties!

Pie face challenge!

At the beginning of the week the challenge was set; whichever class raised the most money over the week would be able to cream pie their teacher! All of the classes did brilliantly raising lots of money but the winning class, who raised nearly £70(!), was Owls! This meant the children got to cream pie Mr Wilson and Mrs Rudd; who were extremely good sports!

Livingstone Primary School raised an amazing total of over £500 for Children in Need, so well done all of you!

There are lots of videos and information about Children and Need and who our money will help on the Official Children in Need Youtube channel    https://www.youtube.com/user/BBCCiN
