School Events

Welcome to our School Events Page – dates of events at the foot of the page.
For term dates please see here

We will endeavour to update this page regularly so that everyone is aware of the many and varied events we hold throughout the academic year for our children, parents and the wider community.

Some events happen every year such as School discos, parent evenings, sports day, Christmas and end of year productions, Christmas and Summer Fairs, whereas others, are ‘one off events’.

The Bellbird Choir

entertained an audience of parents and friends to Christmas Carols and Songs.
Soloists performed with confidence and enthusiasm.
A great evening was had by all.

Family Learning

Family Learning run parent courses at our school during term time on Tuesday mornings.
This term it has been on English.
7 of our Mums passed Level 1 English City and Guilds this term! The photo shows them all with their certificates – they have worked very hard.
The courses are free with free refreshments and a free crèche.


International Old Persons Day

Thursday 1st October 2015 was International Old Persons Day and our Year 6 children went to meet and talk with our older generation at Orchard House here in Sawston. One of the older people said, ‘I had a lovely time, especially meeting the children- they were full of joy and excitement and it was a pleasure to celebrate with them.’

Cycle helmets

We are committed to ensuring the safety of all of our children. FABS agreed to fund cycle helmets for every child at The Bellbird. Recently the Co Headteachers, Mrs Corrall and Mrs Darrell, gave  every one of our 56 Reception children a cycle helmet in our distinctive Bellbird blue.  The children were absolutely thrilled and proud as our photo shows!

Bug Hotel

Over the summer holidays, Dr. Wreghitt, one of our Governors, and Fabian, his grandson and pupil at our school built a wonderful Bug Hotel for all of our children to use and enjoy.

Sponsors of the project were:
Tim Wreghitt
Tony Negus, Builder
Travis Perkins, Stapleford

Flower Festival

There is to be a Flower Festival at St Mary’s Church and our children in Swifts Class have created a beautiful paper flower display to exhibit.
The colours are all found in our school Bellbird painting.  We think the children have done a wonderful job!
