Harvest Festival 2018


Thank you so much to all FPS Parents and pupils who donated a gift to our Harvest Festival Charity – the Salvation Army Toy Appeal. We are all overwhelmed with your generosity and so are the Salvation Army in Newark. Thank you to all our parents and relatives who celebrated our Harvest Festival with us. It was another lovely FPS occasion with all the classes, musicians and the choir performing beautifully.


FoF Halloween Bake Sale

Another fantastic Halloween cakes and treats sale after school to celebrate the end of half term.

Thank you so much to all our FOF for baking such delicious goodies and to all the children and relatives for buying and eating them! There was a super range of spooky bites on offer.

A great way to begin half term and the FPS staff wish you all a lovely holiday and Happy Halloween!

Flintham Show

A fantastic day was had by Key Stage 1 at the 2018 Flintham Show on Thursday 27 September in the glorious sunshine; one of our annual days out on the FPS calendar.

The children were so keen to describe what they had seen on their return.

Comments from the children included: ‘There were huge horses in a field’, ‘The green tractors were the best’ and ‘The bull in the ring wasn’t behaving.’

The teachers were so proud of how well the children behaved and a big thank you to all our parent volunteers. Congratulations to all our budding artists who earned certificates in the art competition.

Our Artsmark Award

Fantastic news, Flintham has been awarded the Artsmark Silver Award! This is a great achievement for a small school. Thank you so much Mrs Smith for all your hard work in gathering evidence, arranging whole school Art Days and submitting our evidence.
The letter we received stated:

Flintham School has made a good start to its Artsmark journey and has clear ambitions to embed the developments made so far. The year has seen an increase in arts provision, through stand alone specialist provision (such as drama and dance) and through a topic based approach to curriculum planning which contains enrichment stimuli for each subject, most of which incorporate the arts. 

Congratulations on your Artsmark Silver Award!

As a Silver Artsmark school Arts Council England celebrates your commitment to arts and cultural education and the opportunities emerging across your provision. Your children and young people are offered equal opportunity to participate in a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences and you recognise the importance of development opportunities for your staff in these areas.

You understand the value of working with arts and cultural organisations and are developing partnerships to enhance your provision. Your children and young people have an opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of arts and culture and you are working to build on the foundations of your provision.

Well done to all the children and staff at FPS!

Sports Day

Monday 16 July, 2018

A fantastic afternoon on FPS field today
– our annual Sports Day!

So many children winning races and trying their hardest and thank you parents, grandparents and friends for all the great support.

The staff were really impressed with how the houses cheered on each other and lots of lovely comments about how the older children looked after and encouraged the younger members.

Well done all of you and huge congratulations to Beech for winning this year!


Flintham retains ECO Green Flag Award

Fantastic news! On Monday 9 July 2018, FPS was assessed to see how Eco friendly we are and we did amazingly well and were able to retain our coveted Green Flag.

This is by no means an easy award to achieve and involves a lot of work and completing a range of Eco initiatives throughout the year including bird watching, litter picking and saving water.

We are so proud of our Eco team and the whole school for achieving this award and helping the planet too!

Fabulous Flintham Fair!

A wonderful time was had by the all at Flintham’s Summer Fair on Sunday. It really is one of the loveliest occasions in Flintham’s school calendar when the whole community comes together. It is a very special occasion – made even more special this year due to the fantastic performances by the musical quartet and the school and Flintham choir – so moving.

A huge thank you to all of you who donated prizes, set up and ran stalls, baked all the delicious cakes and amazing food, came along and joined in the fun, rode a bike for 160 miles or helped clear away. This event could not happen without so many people’s efforts, past and present parents included, and is much appreciated by the school.

A final massive thank you to Amanda and Andrew Crawford.
Andrew – a brilliant compere – so entertaining and a great choice of music!
Amanda – thank you so much for all your organising and giving up so much of your own precious time and being choir master as well!

Thank you again to everyone who came and shared this occasion with us and made it so enjoyable in the gorgeous sunshine!

We raised an amazing £2006.65!
