Over the next couple of weeks, we will be participating in an anti-bullying week as well as our Well-being week.

Anti-bullying week takes place next week (w/c 11th November) and to support this we are asking that all of the children wear odd socks on Tuesday 12th November and to bring in 1p and 2p to fill the odd socks that will be in their classroom.

We will also be supporting Children in Need, which is taking place on Friday 15th November.  On this day, the children will be able to come to school in non-uniform and will have the opportunity to purchase biscuits at playtime.

Our well-being week will take place the following week (w/c 18th November).  During this week, the children will take part in a variety of activities. We will launch this week with a visit from the NSPCC.

All money raised will be donated to the following charities:  Children in Need, NSPCC and the Anti-Bullying Alliance. 

Thank you in advance for your support.

Your sincerely

Today the pupils, parents and staff here at Crabtree Farm Primary School got behind Macmillan Cancer Support's annual Coffee Morning and managed to raise an impressive £1208.83 for this good cause. 

We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported today's fundraising event.  We wouldn't have been able to raise this incredible amount of money if it wasn't for those of you who baked a cake, joined us for a coffee or wore non-uniform. You should all feel very proud of yourselves! 


Well done Crabtree!

Dear Parent/Carers,

Crabtree Farm Primary School is holding its very own Race for Life event for Cancer Research UK and we’d love your child to join the fun. Our youngsters are the generation that could see ground breaking treatments and cures for cancer in their lifetime. They’re the young warriors who could be the researchers and lifesavers of tomorrow. By taking part in Race for Life and uniting together against cancer, they’ll be doing something really special.


On the field at Crabtree Farm Primary School on Wednesday 19th June (weather permitting)

Children will be given the choice of walking or running 1km or 2km on the school field.

Your child will have their PE kit in school but please ensure they also have suitable trainers/plimsolls for running and a water bottle. We will be selling squash and snacks on the day so please bring a few extra pennies. 


Please complete the form below to give your child permission to unite with us at our Race for Life and let us know if you’d lik...

Today the children and staff at Crabtree Farm got behind the Red Nose Day Conk Jester and raised a lot of money for Comic Relief.  The fundraising frenzy kicked off very early this morning at Breakfast Club where Minnie Mouse, a few scientists and the odd pirate were spotted tucking into a slice of toast!

For one day only the school uniform was abandoned in favour of fancy dress costumes and we would like to say a massive thank you to the grownups out there who must have worked tirelessly on the fantastic costumes that were on display today.  

We haven’t finished the count yet, but so far together we have managed to raise an amazing £800 pounds for this fantastic cause and we couldn’t have achieved this without the support of all of you. You should all be very proud of the difference your donations will make to the lives of people both in the UK and worldwide.  

Well done Crabtree!

Red Nose Day

Friday 15 March 2019

Just a reminder about Red Nose Day 2019.

To raise money, we’re going to have a non-uniform day.

So for just £1 you can come dressed as your favourite Disney character/Pirate or Mad Scientist to coincide with our Science week.

We will also be selling Cakes and Biscuits for 50p at playtime.

The money we raise will be used to change countless lives, both here in the UK and worldwide.

We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping us raise lots of money for Red Nose Day.

Yours faithfully,

Red Nose Day 15th March 2019

Red Nose Day 2019 is just around the corner and we’ve decided to join in the fun.

To raise money, we’re going to have a non-uniform day.

So for just £1 you can come dressed as your favourite Disney character/Pirate or Mad Scientist to coincide with our Science week.

We will be selling Red Noses in the office from tomorrow.

They will cost £1.25 each this year!

The money we raise will be used to change countless lives, both here in the UK and worldwide. In fact, just £3 could pay for crayons, pencils, paint and paper for children living in a Serbian refugee camp. And £10 could cover the cost of 10 hot meals for a homeless person in the UK.

We’ll also be using Red Nose Day as a learning opportunity to help our pupils explore the issues facing young people across the world, and how the money we raise can help.

We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping us raise lots of money for Red Nose Day.

Yours faithfully,

Miss Constantinou and Miss...

At Crabtree Farm we take pride in supporting many charities, so when Pudsey Bear sent out the call for people to do their thing for Children in Need we simply couldn’t resist.  On Friday the 16th of November we abandoned our normal school uniform and dressed in  bright coloured clothes to raise money for disadvantaged children across the UK.  

We are delighted to announce that all together weraised an amazing £374 pounds for this good cause. Well done Crabtree!

Photographs are available to view here.

We would like to invite children to partake in a non-uniform day on Friday 16th November in awareness of Children in Need. There will not be a donation required to partake!

However, we will be selling some yummy biscuits at playtime for 20p each and also ask for random donations in 1p and 2p’s (We plan to make a large Pudsey Bear face on the playground with the copper change).

Our theme is “Bright Colours” so pupils can dress in their favourite brightly coloured tops/jumpers/dresses etc and can also wear Children in Need accessories (such as Pudsey ears!).

Please contact the office if you have any questions.

Yours sincerely

At Crabtree Farm we like to celebrate the successes of members of our school community so when we heard that these three Crabtree Stars had completed the Robin Hood Half Marathon we just had to invite them to bring their medals in to school and congratulate them on their sporting success.  Well done!

We take raising money for charities extremely seriously here at Crabtree Farm Primary School and the Royal British Legion is a charity that is close to all our hearts.
Therefore, you can imagine our delight at being presented with a High Achievement Award for raising an impressive £250 pounds for this fantastic cause last year.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Crabtree community for supporting us in all our charitable efforts. We look forward to working together on more fundraising fun in the future.
