Election Day - Here we are on election day, just after taking our pledges.  Thank you for voting for us. We are looking forward to doing our bit to improving the school!

A report from the Attendance Team: "This term attendance was all about a movie day with pyjamas and popcorn.  Mr Godfrey made a Powerpoint which we updated in assembly by moving the popcorn kernels to the right class to show who was the winner.  Next term attendance will be pizza and the class who has the most attendance will get to make and eat the pizza!"  

A BIG well done to Liberty class, who had the highest attendance for Term 1 we hope you enjoyed your movie afternoon!

A flyer went home earlier in the week about a

Bingo night on Thursday 22nd November

to raise money for these charities—all friends and family are invited!

There will be great prizes, everyone is welcome!

Carols in the Community

Two reports from our community group:

Today we rang an elderly home called Willow Park Lodge [in Dover] and we arranged a time for the choir to go to them and sing.  It was 12th of December at 2:00pm and they said they would love that. They also said they would love to teach us to do some sewing, knitting and art because they said they love to do those themselves.

We phoned Larenton House, Willow Park Lodge and St Stephens.  We arranged it together over the phone for us to take or school choir down to the elderly homes with Mrs Carruthers and Mrs Wheeler at different times.  With Willow Park Lodge we also decided to take some pupils to the elderly to do some crochet with them.  We also decided to take our music group down to play at some point.


Our community Bingo evening was a great success!  It was fantastic to see so many people attend. Thank you for coming to this event and helping us to support our charities.  Also, thank you to Priory Panthers club for assisting at the event.

Here are some of the posters we made with Mr Godfrey for the event:  


Spotty Day!

Thank you for helping us to support Children in Need.  We raised over £300 on our Spotty Clothes Day!


As a school council, we decided we wanted to spread a little Christmas cheer into the local community.  We thought that it would be a good idea to give our school choir the opportunity to visit some local care homes.  Here is a report from our community group:

 'The Choir in the Community was fun, we visited elderly and care homes and sang Christmas carols.  At the end, the grans and grandads gave us chocolate and biscuits to say thank you. Yum! We all enjoyed it!"


18/01/19 - We held our second Academy School Council Meeting, at Vale View. We spoke about 100% day, Snowy will be visiting all 3 schools in April and all classes are to design an academy logo, we will be choosing the best one at the next academy meeting for us to use when we write to people! Each school has 4 councillors.

07/12/18 - We held our first Academy School Council meeting.  It was at Priory Fields and we had 2 St. Martin's pupils and 2 Vale View pupils along with us 2 from Priory Fields.  We talked about our aims and we would like to build stronger links with the other schools.  We want to put on at least 3 events as an Academy, support each other and hold some competitions.  We decided on the date for our next meeting, which will be at Vale View.


Two reports from our road safety officers, 11/01/19:

This morning we stood in front of the school to make sure nobody parked on the yellow zig-zag lines.  Then we helped adults get into school.

We have been doing road safety.  Today we stood outside watching to see if anybody parked on the zig-zag lines.

I am school councillor for Endeavour Class.  My hobbies include playing games with my family.


We are proud to announce that we are in the process of building links to other schools around the world. Year 6 are currently conversing with a school in Pennsylvania. We also have plans for our year R to begin writing to a school in Australia too as soon as their school year begins (end of Jan.) It is actually Jenny Mulraney who used to work here at Priory Fields!

Click here to view the letter sent from the school in Pennsylvania!


We helped Mr Godfrey make a flyer for 100% day, which will be going on next term.  We persuaded people to come to school and get a photo with our mascot, Snowy. We put a picture of a camera on our flyer, here’s a preview!

The day was a great success and we had the highest attendance of all three academy schools!


We are very Eco-aware at Priory Fields and are keen to attract wildlife to our school grounds.  The School Council have worked with our site team to position some bird feeders at the edge of the school field.  The School Council will be feeding the birds regularly and we look forward to attracting a variety of species!

Our chosen charities this year are: Age UK and Dover Winter Night Shelter.


Some children from classes in Year 4 and up were chosen to participate in an Anti-Bullying march,  Last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we practised songs, chants and music tunes for the march.  On Friday 8th of March we walked down to Vale View and they joined us with their flags.  Then, we all walked down to St Martin's and they joined us.  We walked back to our school and made a video in the hall.

On Friday, we marched down the hill to meet Vale View and we met St. Martin's outside the MOT garage.  We played music on the way and had so much fun.  We made a chant, Vale View made tabbards and St Martin's made flags to tell everyone that we won't accept bullying. We want to more events like this!

We recently took part in an Anti-Bullying march with children from Vale View & St. Martin's.  Here are two reports from our school councillors who took part:

Attendance Reward

Here are two reports on the attendance reward, which this term was an exciting science afternoon and was achieved by Endeavour class:

Yesterday was really fun!  Each of us got to do amazing things, we made butter slime and galaxy slime.  We got to change milk into different colours and even did an experiment with a volcano!  We put vinegar and baking soda to erupt the volcano, it looked really cool!  We all had a great day!

Yesterday we made slime and other things like butter slime, galaxy slime, a volcano and colour changing milk.  We had so much fun.
