Children in Need

On Thursday 16th November pupils and staff donated money and wore their pyjamas to school in support of Children in Need.  Together we raised an amazing £295.98 which will be donated to the charity and will be used to help change the lives of children throughout the UK.  Well done to everyone who wore their pyjamas to school!


ON Friday 10th November Gainsborough attended the 99th anniversary of the Armistice at Central Park, East Ham with other schools and members of the Royal British Legion.







We have been busy this year working together to raise money for different charities.  So far this term we have raised £164.34 by wearing our jeans to school on Friday 22nd September for the Jeans for Genes charity.  £122.39 was raised by our parents, families and staff at our Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September and an impressive £398.41 was raised by everyone for our Wear it Pink day on Friday 20th October, we all wore pink to school and our School Councillors made and sold pink ribbon badges to show our support for Cancer Research.  Well done to everyone who helped and supported us.


Visit from the Mayor

Gainsborough Primary School were fortunate enough to have a visit from Mayor Robin Wales on Wednesday 18th October.  We were presented with an award of a silver salva and individual medals for the children who took part in this year’s Newham Carnival, winning the acclaimed prize of ‘Best School Participants’.

The children danced and cheered their way through the carnival dressed as bats with their costumes decorated with jewels and glitter.  Support from Emergency Exit Arts with the preparation and dance routines, meant the day was a real success.

Ms Deborah Strain commented, “What an excellent first carnival for Gainsborough Primary School.  I am very proud of the enthusiasm and energy shown by pupils, parents and staff.  What an amazing fun day we all had and I look forward to taking part next year.”






National Teaching Assistants Day

National Teaching Assistants' Day was created to recognise the valuable contribution Teaching Assistants make to the education and support of school children across the UK.



At Gainsborough Primary School our wonderful Teaching Assistants started the day with a special breakfast before celebrating the day in style!
