Whole School Events

We are very lucky at Clayton Village Primary School that we can celebrate events as a whole school. See what we have been up to over the past year!

Royal Wedding - May 2018



On Friday 18th May 2018, our whole school celebrated the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. The wedding was held at St John's Church, Clayton at 10.00am. The whole school attended the ceremony and then we returned to school for a three course wedding breakfast and party in the afternoon complete with first dance. Wedding favours were given to all of our children. A great day was had by all who attended.

Armistice Week - November 2018

Armistice week was very successful with a range of activities taking place. A modern day soldier visited school and allowed the children to dress up in his uniform. We held a remembrance service and Clayton History Society kindly set up and ran a remembrance museum in school which every class visited and handled the artefacts, including the bugle! A big thank you to Clayton History Society for all their help. 


As part of Armistice week, Mrs Whitaker ran a writing competition. We received lots of entries and we are happy to share with you our winning entry.

Christmas at CVPS is a big celebration. During the month of December we enjoy key stage nativities, Christmas lunch, Pantomime, Santa assembly, Christmas parties and singing assembly.



Careers Week - February 2019

In February 2019 Mrs Rahim organised a very successful careers week. We had an array of volunteers who came to talk to the children about their careers and experiences. During the week we had firefighters, a nurse, police officers, physiotherapists, plasters, roofers and bankers. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and are now inspired about what they want to be when they grow up.


Children's Mental Health Week - February 2019

This year the theme of Children's Mental Health Week was; Healthy on the inside and outside.

To celebrate we held the ultimate ‘Feel Good Friday’. Children came into to school in clothes that make them feel good and the whole school took part in a ‘Feel Good’ assembly and aerobics class this morning!
