In this section we will be proudly sharing the wonderful initiatives our children are involved in to support others within our school. We will also highlight opportunities that may be available to help our families.
Thank you to everyone for supporting the VIPS at East Borough community.
Year 4 perform in the Performing Arts Outreach Project
Students in Year 4 have been busy working this term with Valley Park School and other VIAT primary schools on an exciting Outreach Project. This year, V in the Park Community Festival was cancelled due to Covid-19, but they still managed to film performances and create a video.
We are very proud of everyone involved with this project after what has been a very difficult year.

Thank you to the PTA families who brightened our school playgrounds!
A huge thank you to the members of our PTA who gave up some of their time in the Easter Holiday to help improve the environment for the children. They spent the day at East Borough painting the benches, fences and woodwork to brighten up the playgrounds.
East Borough supporting #Hello Yellow
Thank you to everyone for supporting #HelloYellow today. The children had all made such an effort to support YoungMinds! Today there have been plenty of opportunities to think about having a healthy mind. This has been through a PSHE lesson about resilience and lots of other activities that support well-being such as the daily mile, yoga and mindfulness. We intend to use half the money raised to support children within our school and half to raise vital funds for YoungMinds. Looking after our wellbeing has never been more important and together we can show young people they are not alone and things can get better.
2019-2020 The Language Fair
As part of our Global Theme, Identity and Diversity – we held our very first Language Fair on Wednesday 20th November. This was an opportunity to celebrate the cultural richness and diversity of our school and enable us to come together as a community and celebrate!
The event was a huge success! Children came dressed to school in either their national dress or clothes that represented their country. They had the opportunity to visit 17 different ‘countries’, completing their passport as they went. The children took part in various activities such as tasting food, listening to music, taking part in quizzes, practising writing in different languages, learning a little of the language, exploring objects and understanding facts about the countries they visited!
The children also had the opportunity to watch a Scottish Country dancing display by the Cobtree Scottish Country Dancing Club. The club told the children facts about Scotland and how the dances represented different aspects of the country.
A huge thank you to all our families who came along, having cooked amazing food, preparing wonderful activities and ensuring that the event was a wonderful experience for our children. The pride and passion for the different cultures within our school was evident and great fun was had by all!
