British Pie Week

Pupils at Middleton on the Wolds Primary School have been trying to ‘tempt a celebrity’ in a recent letter writing campaign.   To coincide with Great British Pie Week, several children chose celebrities whom they would most like to have their school dinner with.

Thomas and Joseph, both keen rugby players at the school, explained that they would love to have their school lunches with a real life professional rugby player. Having heard from the boys, international rugby league star, Iafeta Paleaaesina agreed to come in and enjoy Thursday’s pie at the pupils’ table.


The New Zealand born forward is one of the most decorated players in the game and made his breakthrough in the NRL with New Zealand Warriors. On the international stage he helped the Kiwis win the 2005 Tri Nations Series, before switching allegiance to represent Samoa at the 2008 Rugby League World Cup. He joined Wigan Warriors ahead of the 2006 season and helped them win the Super League Grand Final four years later, defeating St Helens 22-10 at Old Trafford.

Paleaaesina bowed out on a high with Wigan, joining Salford for the 2011 season where he spent two years before a spell in France with Limoux. He returned to Super League with Hull FC, where he spent the last three seasons, going on to make his 200th top flight appearance. He is now enjoying his testimonial year with Doncaster.

Accompanying Paleaaesina, was ex-New Zealand international, Carl Hall.

Great British Pie Week began on the 6th of March and Mrs Goodwin, the school’s cook, created a pie filled menu to treat the children’s taste buds. The range on offer was impressive with steak pie, cottage pie and roast chicken and ham pie all appearing throughout the week.

Executive Headteacher, Steve Woodhouse, was particularly looking forward to the meals. ‘British Pie Week is always something to look forward to. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate good old fashioned British values. The kids all know that I like my pies, apparently you can tell…’

Several other celebrities sent in their apologies, including singer songwriter, Marc Atkinson.  Mr Woodhouse was disappointed that the other guests couldn’t make it, ‘Marc is busy singing up in the North West and couldn’t commit to the timings. We are going to invite him in on another occasion instead.’

Interesting Professions

Children at Middleton on the Wolds Primary School recently had a visit from a local photographer. The event was organised for two reasons, as Headteacher Steve Woodhouse explains;
“We are trying to invite more and more visitors into our school to talk about their interesting professions. It is important that children begin to learn about potential careers from an early age and raise their aspirations accordingly. Some of our children only ever know about the jobs their parents do.
We also wanted to have some photographs of our children in their daily work to display around the school.”

Danny Cartwright, an amateur photographer from Pocklington, gave up his spare time to visit the school and take the pictures of the children.

Mr Cartwright said ‘It was a privilege to be asked to help with the project and a great idea to put the students learning in to pictures and on display. The school dinner was also outstanding!’

Some of the best photographs were  selected to be printed on canvas and displayed around the building. Mr Woodhouse was pleased with the outcome “The children love having their pictures on the walls and many parents and visitors have commented on them. We will change them as time goes on and use them to reflect the huge variety our curriculum offers.’

Our Lunchtime Food

School Dinners

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement. Its good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal.

Premium Spends

Spending Money

The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
