Girls’ Football

Our girls’ football team are the proud owners of a new football kit, kindly sponsored by the Cropwell Bishop Creamery. We first wore it to a five-a-side indoor Futsal tournament, at the South Notts Academy in Radcliffe-on-Trent on Tuesday 2nd February. After four matches against East Bridgford Primary and Radcliffe-on-Trent Primary we emerged as the undefeated tournament winners. The girls were fantastic and looked as if they had played futsal many times before, when in fact it was our first time and the other teams had played it previously! It looks as if the award winning Cropwell Bishop Creamery is going to inspire us to be winners too and we are extremely grateful for their generous support.


The Travel Bug’s Return

Mission: To come home to the children of Cropwell Bishop Primary School Nottingham UK.

The Cropwell Bishop School’s Geo caching travel bug has arrived back at school after a 3 year trip all around the world.

Mr Palmer dropped the bug off in India at the top of a mountain back in 2013.

Since then the bug has travelled 37,017 miles and has been to over 700 places, mostly in Europe. It has travelled to Thailand, Germany, Portugal, then the USA, Canada and then back to the UK and us.


Junior Road Safety Officers


On Friday 29th January we had our first JRSO meeting with the new Officers and Steve Stevenson the School Liaison Officer for Road Safety with Nottinghamshire County Council. Our new Officers are Ethan Stephenson, Chloe Smith, Ross Ablewhite, Rebecca Bell, Rosie Dickerson and George Featherstone.

We arranged a Road Safety Assembly which will take place on Tuesday 9th February where the officers will explain about The Green Cross Code and How To Be Seen and Be Safe. Also we sorted out a Cool Kids session with Steve for Classes 5 and 6 for March and we are planning Road Safety sessions with Key Stage One and Classes 3 and 4.

All in all, the Road Safety Officers will be very busy helping to teach the children how to be safe near roads.
