Christmas Craft Fun

Thank you to the visitors from St. Mary’s church who organised and ran a wonderful after school craft event. Children from nursery to year 6 thoroughly enjoyed a range of activities.

Karate Demonstration

We were very lucky to have a visit from Senshi Kai Karate Club, Dukinfield who demonstrated the types of training young children enjoy at the club. Karate develops:

  • Strong mind :  Focus, concentration and self-discipline.   Increases self-esteem
  • Strong Bodies:  Exercising,  regular sleep pattern, increase in oxygenated bloods to increase healthier body and increases serotonin so helps increase mental health mindfulness.

Anti Bullying

On Thursday we were visited by a fantastic drama group who performed an anti-bullying play called Just Joshing. The message was very clear and helped to reinforce all our recent work on anti- bullying. Why not ask your children to tell you more about it?

Make a Child Smile

A number of parents are sharing a Facebook post asking for advent calendars to be donated to St Marys Community Food Bank…. It’s the one that you support with your Harvest gifts. There are families all over Denton who are struggling because of austerity and cuts but it’ll be really tough at Christmas in particular. If you’d like to donate an advent calendar or even a selection box please drop them off at school and we’ll deliver them to St Marys Church.

It’s a great cause and certainly helps the children and families in our own community.

Thank You

Mr Marsland


The children have had individual and sibling photographs taken at school today. Orders must be returned by Thursday 30th November at the latest in order to guarantee delivery for Christmas.

Poppy Appeal

Thank you for supporting the Poppy Appeal.  We raised £162.84 for the Royal British Legion.


Christmas Craft Club!

We are really pleased to announce that St Mary’s Church, Haughton Green, will be running a special Christmas Craft Club. This is a free family event!


This is likely to be very popular so please collect your tickets from the school office as soon as possible.

Children in Need

Thank you to everybody who supported our fundraising this week. The children looked absolutely amazing both in their crazy odd socks and spotty, bright outfits.

The School Council are very proud to announce that the school community raised almost £400! Brilliant! This will be shared equally between the Anti-Bullying Alliance and Children in Need.

Sport England & Field Update Nov 17

Fantastic News! Sport England have awarded Russell Scott £75,000 towards the Multi-sport Floodlit Games Area (MUGA)


There is a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow….somebody’s looking down on us!
Yesssssssssss!!!! We are pleased to announce that Sport England have awarded us £75,000 towards the floodlit artificial multi-use games area. As you know we have been writing grant bids to raise enough money to provide a fantastic resource for our community. We applied for £100,000 but there were thousands of applicants and not enough money to give us the full amount. So now we need to raise the difference of £25,000 so the project can start. If anybody has any ideas how we can make that happen or you’ve won the Lottery please let me know!

Quick update from the Council Engineers:

  • Muck shift – This hopefully will be completed today, Friday 17th November at which point around 350 loads of material will have been removed from site.  The ground has been left around 100mm high to offer some protection to the formation level.
  • The haul road will be left in place for the moment to assist with vehicle movements.
  • The manhole on the access path has been constructed, backfilling will occur tomorrow.  The bad news is there appears to be a further area of pipe with back fall located under the fence with Crown Point North.  The engineers will need to make contact with the management of the shopping estate to undertake investigation work and probably to dig on the sewer in their land.

Upcoming works:

  • The engineers will be installing gullies to improve the drainage of the access path from Crown Point North.  The concrete edgings will then be adjusted and the path resurfaced.  This will require the path to remain closed for the time being.
  • Once the access path is completed we will move on to installing the attenuation pipework and associated manholes.  Connections will also be provided to pick up the drainage from the playground extensions.
  • Once the drainage works are completed we will start on the construction of the playground extension areas, firstly stoning the areas, installing the gullies and then finishing with the tarmac.

Excellent News….big thank you from the Russell Scott Community to Sport England and to TMBC Engineers who are doing a great job …..thanks for looking after us ….we can now see things are happening and progressing well.

Children in Need


On Friday 17th November we will be joining in with the fun by raising money for Children In Need. Children may wear their own bright clothing, the spottier the better!


We are asking for a £1 donation. All money raised will be split between Children in Need and the Anti-Bullying Alliance. 


ANTI-BULLYING WEEK- 13th–17th November 2017

Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages everyone to take action against bullying. The theme this year is ‘All Different, All Equal’ which celebrates uniqueness.

We would like all children to wear ODD SOCKS on Tuesday to celebrate the fact that we are all different and all equal. During the week the children will be learning about the importance of being valued and included in school life without fear of bullying.
