Hot weather

Dear families

We hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather. It is extremely warm both in and out of school and we would like to remind everyone about the importance of having a water bottle in school, a hat and ensuring they have sun cream on at the start of the day.

Many thanks

Mrs Dolan

Rocket Fund

Rocket fund

Dear Parents,

This year Silkstone Primary are involved in a new initiative called Rocket Fund. Rocket Fund is a crowdfunding platform for schools to fundraise for the latest technology.

I wanted to make you aware that we are raising money for 2 iPads for our children through this platform. The iPads are so important because they’ll  help develop our children’s learning even further. 

Funding new technology in schools has always been a challenge. So we’ve created a project on Rocket Fund to see if we can raise money from our community.

To see our project please go here:

Every little helps, but don’t worry if you can’t donate right now – we would be grateful if you could share this project with as many people as possible: on Twitter, Facebook, email or just over the fence!

We are also keen for local businesses to support us so if you have any contacts who may be interested in supporting this project, please get in touch here:

Many thanks,

Mrs Dolan

Weather update

We hope you are all safe and warm and have been enjoying some fun in the snow. Due to the high winds, low temperatures and the possibility of more snow over night we will again make the decision whether to open by 7am in the morning.

Thank you once again for your continued support.


School Closed

Unfortunately due to the weather we are unable to open school today and it will be closed. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause but everyone’s wellbeing is our priority.

Thank you again for your continued support and understanding.

Thank you for your understanding and support through today’s school closure. We will endeavour again to make s decision by 7am tomorrow morning whether school will be open or closed. We make our decision in consultation with other local schools and it will be dependent on the state of the roads  and the weather forecast. The safety of children and staff is paramount.

Once again thank you for your understanding.
