Welcome to Gedney Church End
Helping each other to achieve and soar
We hope that our website will help you to learn a little more about our small learning community, our amazing children, supportive parents, committed teachers and dedicated governors. Together, we offer a creative and forward looking school where inclusion is at the heart of everything we do.
Creativity is very important to us and we have worked hard to ensure that our children encounter a curriculum that provides enrichment and opportunity in equal measure. We understand that children learn best by seeing and doing, but it is the quality of care, guidance and support that enables them to reach their full potential through excellence and enjoyment.
Visits to the school are actively encouraged. You will find a very warm, friendly and professional welcome. We hope to hear from you soon.
News and Reminders
Sport Relief 17 March
The children from Woodpeckers and Eagles class enjoyed taking part in sports activities on Friday for Sport Relief. They all came dressed in sportswear either from a sport they take part in or as a sports personality. See more pictures on our Gallery page.
Our School Councillors have been busy fundraising to buy Lego for each class in the school. They feel that Lego in the classrooms would help support the childrens story writing, creativity, mathematics and it would challenge them. As well as fundraising the School Council have been researching the cost of Lego and what Lego they feel would be best for each class. Today they presented the Lego to each class. See more pictures on our Gallery page.

The Great Gedney Bake Off
On Friday the chefs from cooking club took part in ‘The Great Gedney Bake Off’. They were allowed to choose what they cooked, but had a time limit of an hour. Each chef was allowed a ‘buddy’ to help them.
It was an absolute pleasure to watch the level of cooperation, concentration and FUN that was demonstrated.
This is what was baked:
- Jack, aided by Flynn baked Cheese and marmite scones
- Ilana, aided by Whitney made smartie cookies
- Keira, aided by Emma made brownies
- Mikey, aided by Logan baked macaroni cheese
- James, aided by Tiago made jam tarts and mini pizzas
- Zac and Ashbie made spaghetti bolognese
- Faith, aided by Chloe made chocolate cookies
- Lauren, aided by Alyssa made cupcakes
- Rowan, aided by Morgan made a lemon cake, complete with icing.
Mr Pearson and Mr Dearlove were asked to judge. It was very difficult to make a decision. Several times, they said that what they had just tasted was a winner, UNTIL they tasted the next thing!
After much tasting and re-tasting, a decision was made.
Our Gedney Bake off winner was Faith - very well done. Her chocolate cookies were sooo gooey and sticky!
But everyone deserves to be congratulated, as the results were fabulous, not only in looks but also in taste. So a very big well done all of you!!!
At the end of the ‘first ‘week back, all our children have been superstars! Thy have adapted to the new regime and coped with all the changes brilliantly. Within our classrooms we held our own celebration assembly to celebrate the fabulous work and efforts.
