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, each child chose the celebrity they would most like to have their school dinner with.

Harry, an eight year old pupil at the school, explained that he would love to have his school lunch with a real life professional rugby player. Having heard from Harry, international rugby league star, Jordie Hedges, agreed to come in and enjoy Tuesday’s pie at the pupil’s table. The Australian half-back recently came to England to sign for Doncaster from NRL giants South Sydney Rabbitohs. Accompanying Jordie, was ex-New Zealand international, Carl Hall.

Great British Pie Week began on the 7th 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 summer fruit 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 was added to my diary as soon as I heard about the dates. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate good old fashioned British values, and the children’s idea to invite guests in, was a great one. The kids all know that I like my pies, apparently you can tell…’

Several other celebrities sent in their apologies, including Bradley Walsh and TV weather presenter Jo Blythe. Mr Woodhouse was disappointed that they couldn’t make it. ‘Jo sent me a lovely message explaining how she ‘loves a good pie’ and would have joined us if she hadn’t been filming in the North West.’

With new research revealing that 75% of people enjoy a pie at least once a month, British Pie Week has been growing every year with pie-eaters everywhere seeking their ultimate pie perfection.

Note – The rugby players’ visit is taking place on Tuesday 8th March (11:30 assembly and 12:00 pie eating).

Press Release – Primary School Receives Glowing Report after Recent Inspection

Pupils and staff at Middleton on the Wolds Primary are celebrating after receiving their latest National Society Inspection Report. The distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a Church of England school are described throughout the report as being good.

Children prosper both academically and spiritually, they understand and are nurtured by the ethos that underpins the school. Academic progress and standards have been rising and children do well, including those for whom progress is more difficult to realise. All children grow to become curious, keen to learn, respectful, eager to show kindness, caring and freely give their friendship. Relationships in school are very good; children are well behaved and look after each other. They show concern through their support of charities and willingly get involved with activities outside the school.

In April 2014 Middleton on the Wolds formally federated with Beswick and Watton Primary and Bishop Wilton primary schools. The three Church of England schools share an executive Headteacher, Steve Woodhouse. The inspection report describes this new arrangement as a very positive move; ’Middleton has benefited greatly from the pool of expertise in three schools. Both its distinctiveness and effectiveness as a church school have improved rapidly since its last inspection. Leadership roles extend across all schools enabling more focussed management and improvement for taught subjects and more effective promotion of children’s personal and spiritual development. School leaders have created a school with a very tangible Christian ethos: one where adults and children enjoy working together and children do well.’

Mr Woodhouse was pleased with the outcome of the inspection, ‘I am very proud of our school and all who are connected with it. The report shows the positive steps we are taking to improve the primary experience for every child. Our Christian values are very important to us and are clearly evident each and every day. With its family atmosphere and personalised support, our school provides many opportunities that larger schools can’t possibly offer.’

Parents have great respect for the school and fully support the way that a focus on its Christian inspiration is used to enhance the provision for children’s intellectual and spiritual development.

A future target, resulting from the inspection, is for the school to extend pupils’ learning of other faiths and cultures in preparation for living in a diverse society.
