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

We had a wonderful time in our sharing assembly for Harvest on Wednesday. Year 3 helped Reverend Stuart by doing some drama, ‘The Harvest Shuffle’. The whole school sung some beautiful songs and donated lots of food for the local community.


A BIG thank you to everyone who supported our Harvest Festival. We have received a lovely message of thanks from Bellingham Golden Oldies.


“Just wanted to thank you and all the children for the harvest festival items that you donated for BeGO. They were handed out yesterday at our Halloween Party and were gratefully received!”

Spooky Disco

A massive thank you to everyone who attended the Spooky Disco, with special thanks to the PTA for all their hard work. Everyone had a fantastically Spooky time!



Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

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


Downderry raised £500.00 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!
