Friends of Dent Monthly Raffle

Here’s an exciting opportunity… As we are not able to go ahead with many of our fundraising activities at the current time, the Friends of Dent have started a new monthly prize draw to support the school. This is a great opportunity to win an indulgent prize whilst helping to showcase the best of local businesses, and raising much needed money for the school.

The funds that Friends of Dent raise for the school really help to make a great difference to the children in our school, so please do get involved!

Christmas Celebrations!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our pupils & families, and to the whole school community. Here’s a quick look back at some of our festive fun in the last week or two.


Class 2 performing their original Christmas play. 

Here’s a selection of shots of Class 2 performing their lovely Christmas scene with all of it’s amusing moments.


Class 1 Nativity

As usual Class 1 performed their delightful traditional nativity, following the Christmas story from the first chapters of Matthew and Luke, completely with a whole class rendition of Silent Night on the hand-bells.



And finally we had our Christmas Party… 

Everyone had a great time in their festive outfits with our usual assortment of Christmas games, and of course prizes too.


Have a great Christmas break and we’ll see you all in 2020!

Mock Election!


We love celebrating our democracy and so of course we are taking the opportunity of a REAL election next week to hold our own mock election!

We ordered a full ‘mock election’ pack from the Houses of Parliament and were excited to receive a fantastic pack of resources to set up our own democratic contest.

Children from every year have really enjoyed getting involved in holding an election and campaigning and voting ourselves.


Our four delegates to the South Lakes Pupil Parliament are using their expertise to act as returning officers, and four children from acrossdefault the school have stood as candidates.

Class 2 have spent some time thinking about how policies help us to decide how to vote, as well as deciding what type of policy they would prioritise in government.


It’s been great fun going through the process of registering to vote and receiving our polling cards! We’re excited about December 12th!
