East Haddon CEVC Primary School

'Love each other as I have loved you': John 15.12

Love, laugh & learn for life

Please keep an eye on our school calendar for forthcoming events!


East Haddon is a small village school, providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our aim is for all our children to become independent and responsible young people. This is achieved in a caring and stimulating environment, through a wide range of carefully balanced learning opportunities. We want our children to achieve the highest possible standards and realise their potential.

We are a Church of England Voluntary Controlled school and we aim to provide a Christian environment which is stable, caring and supportive. Our children have the opportunity to learn and develop their spiritual, social and moral integrity.

We can only achieve the best for each child, socially, morally, spiritually and culturally through close co-operation between home and school. We provide many opportunities for parents to visit the school and share in their children’s education. We look forward to welcoming you in to our school.

Thank You from Friends

A huge thank you to everyone who helped organise, volunteered, sponsored and attended the May Day Fayre. Thank you to the all school staff for their help in the run up to the day. It really was a huge team effort and we hope everyone enjoyed the day. Luckily, the sun stayed out for us! The event was a big success and we raised a whopping £3,090! Thank you!

Woodwind Recital

We were lucky enough to welcome Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts' woodwind ensemble, who treated us to a very enjoyable performance and gave the children the opportunity to learn all about the various instruments. Many thanks to NMPAT. More photos on the Gallery.

We held our annual 'Crazy Hair Day' on the same day - Friday 19th April - in case you wondered about some of the children's hairdos! Thanks to all those that brought items in for this year's May Day tombola. 

Experience Easter

On 25th March, the children participated in 'Experience Easter' at St Mary's Church, East Haddon. They visited different 'stations' within the Church, learning all about the story of Easter. Head over to the Gallery for more photos.

Skateboarding Fun

Thank you to Sam from Team Rubicon, who spent the morning with us on Friday 9th February. Years 1 and 2 tried out some scootering and the older children learnt some skateboarding techniques! Sam said he was impressed by everyone's enthusiasm and determination.


We welcomed The Right Honourable Chris Heaton-Harris MP to school assembly on Friday 12th January. We held a House of Commons style debate led by Mae (our Speaker), Alice (Prime Minister) and Jayden (Leader of the Opposition). The children were fully committed to their allocated parties and debated brilliantly.

They then had the opportunity to question Chris about his job as an MP and Northern Ireland Minister, the history of Parliament and which football team he supports! Thanks to Chris and his team for a very interesting and enjoyable assembly.

Goodbye Mrs Gill

We were very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Betty Gill when she retired at the end of December. Betty has worked with Mrs Gibbins
for many years and is an extremely valued member of the team. She was also a parent here for many years. I know that Mrs Gibbins, all of the children in Green class, and indeed the entire school will miss her
loads but we wish her lots of love for her retirement.
