Projects & Events

This is where you will find photographs and videos of all the exciting events that have been put on at Downderry and in our community.

Remembrance Day

In remembrance of our fallen heroes, we joined together with local schools to pay our respects and to lay our wreath at Downham War memorial.


Our very own bugler played the 'Last Post' in our remembrance assembly, introducing our 2 minutes silence and members of Bellingham Golden Oldies shared their memories of wartime with year 6.


Thank you to everyone who supported our Poppy Appeal to raise funds for essential welfare work for our Service men and women, veterans, and their families. We will let you know how much was raised soon!

Harvest Festival

This year our Harvest Festival will be held on Tuesday 13th October. This years assembly will be different due to the present climate with Covid19. The children will be sharing ideas about what Harvest means to them and learning about Harvest. Father Stuart of St Barnabas Church will be presenting a virtual assembly to the children.


Please support us in this Harvest celebration by donating any tins, dried or packets food. This year we will be donating the food to the Children's Centre Food Bank to support the local families at this difficult time.


Your gifts will be truly appreciated.

Spooky Disco

Unfortunately this year we will not be able to have our annually Spooky Disco as usual. Instead the children will be invited to attend school on the Thursday before half term (Thursday 22nd October) in either their own clothes or a spooky outfit.



Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

A massive thank you to children, staff, parents for the fantastic support that we had in raising funds for MacMillan Cancer Support to fight against Cancer.


Downderry raised £609.00 for the charity. 

Thank you to all parents, carers and friends who came along to the Christmas fair. We would also like to say a massive thank you for all your donations and support.


The amount we raised was £630.57! This will be going towards a variety of things within the school to support the children's experiences and learning!

Due to demand our food bank is more popular than ever before but this means we are running short of our essential items. Can you help us? We are looking for donations of any tinned food, dried packets such as pasta and rice, breakfast cereals, tea/coffee, sugar, biscuits, toiletries and cleaning products. We have also started a Just Giving page to allow us to buy fresh items such as milk, cheese, eggs, fruit and vegetables to add to our stock, just search for 'Downderry' on the Just Giving homepage or copy and paste the link below into your browser:


Food donations can be made to the main school office or directly to the Children's Centre (Shroffold Road entrance).
