Festive Lunch bookings

On Tuesday 15th December the kitchen team will be cooking a Festive Lunch for the children to enjoy in their bubbles.  As our cook needs to know numbers, in order to have the correct amount of  ingredients, we ask that you book your child’s meal on ParentPay by the 8th December.  If your child would prefer the vegetarian option, please also email the office so we can advise the cook.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any difficulty in making the booking.

York School Sports Network Speed Bounce Challenge

We have been asked to step up for a Challenge! We are looking for pupils to take part in a virtual competition. For this challenge, you will need a towel, balance, coordination and stamina!

Place a rolled up towel on the floor or row of cones. Stand feet together with the towel/cones next to the outside of one of your feet. Jump sideways over the towel/ cones making sure your feet stay together finishing with the cone on the outside of the opposite foot. Repeat back and too as fast as you can in 20 seconds.

Each bounce equals 1 point.

Try as many times as you like, but your score will start to reduce if you get too tired. Once finished, go online to register your best score. This way, you can help our school to win the Speed Bounce Challenge!

Either login to and use the username and password, or use the URL, that were in the letter sent out to families.

Donation from the WPA Benevolent Foundation

On behalf of everyone at Elvington Church of England Primary School, I would like to pass on my utmost thanks to the WPA Benevolent Foundation.

The WPA have approved a grant application for new playground equipment.  This will allow us to purchase equipment to the value of £3300.  We are immensely appreciative of this generous support which will benefit children throughout school.
