Welcome to Canberra Primary School’s website.   We hope that it gives you a flavour of daily life at Canberra.
At Canberra Primary School our pupils are at the heart of everything that we do and we constantly strive to ensure that they are provided with a happy and safe learning environment where they receive the encouragement, challenge and support they require to achieve.
Canberra Primary School is an inclusive school where children are treated as individuals and nurtured to develop their skills and abilities.  We have high expectations of all of our children and recognise that they need opportunities to be both successful and challenged if they are to become independent, self-motivated and resilient.  We believe that the wide range of fun and creative learning opportunities provided combined with our caring ethos creates the conditions necessary for our children to achieve.
The partnership between home and school is central to our success and we aim to ensure that all parents and carers have the information they need to support their child.  We hope that the information, photographs and news articles available on our website helps to achieve this aim.
Please enjoy browsing our website!

Christmas at Canberra
We are looking forward to our first Christmas Show in 3 years which is called 'Countdown to Christmas!' and follows an Advent calendar's antics as Christmas approaches.  Our performances are on Tuesday 13th December at 10am, Wednesday 14th December at 1.30pm and Thursday 15th December at 10am.

Our Christmas Coffee morning will be held on Friday the 9th December. This is our main fundraiser of the year and proceeds are used to pay for the Christmas parties. Each class will sing Christmas songs and have the chance to chat with their families and browse the stalls. Time table as follows:

Nursery & P7 - 10.00 -10.30am, P3 &P4 10.30 - 11.00am, P5 & P6 - 11.00 -11.30am, P1 & P2/1 - 11.30 - 12.00pm 

Travelling Book Fayre
It was great to have the bookfair at our parent/carer event in November.  Reading is the most important skill and unlocks all of the others - even maths requires us to read!  Over £1000 worth of books were purchased and this translates into £583.34 for the school to spend on books!  The children and teachers will have lots of fun choosing books for the library and as class novels!  Thank you!.

Thank you to everyone who was able to donate something for our Tombola stall at the Christmas Coffee Morning.  We have been blown away by your generosity! 

Christmas Jumper Day 

On the 8th of December we will be getting into the Christmas spirit by having our Christmas Jumper/Accessory Day children are welcome to come to school wearing a Christmas jumper or accessory.
Can we please ensure Parents/Carers are completing the slip for the Christmas Show Tickets with dates required as well as making payment on ParentPay.

Our school and nursery newsletters are sent out in a Sway each month.  They have been changed to a PDF format for the webiste and this means that some features and the layout might not work as effectively as in the originals.
