Jeans for Genes Day 22nd September


We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated and wore jeans on Friday 22nd September. This cause is very close to our hearts at Todwick School and particularly to Mr Haywood and his family who are involved in supporting the Lily Foundation. They have seen at first hand the amazing research and progress being made in genetics thanks to these donations which are really making a difference.

Along with our donation of £184.40 to the Lily Foundation, we send our love and respect to the Haywood family and especially to Timothy who lives with the effects of Mitochondrial disease (a rare genetic condition). He always wears a big smile and gives his time and attention to helping others, as do all the Haywood family! We're very proud to have them on 'team Todwick'



What a brilliant Science Ambassador visit at Wales High School! Teamworking and engineering challenges carried out by our Science Ambassadors to mark National Science and Engineering week!

Chicken News...


Following on from last Spring when 10 baby chicks hatched in the incubator in FS2 and were raised successfully by our resident hens.. we have now found good homes for the cockrels (who were just too noisy!) and a couple of the hens have gone to live with Mrs Fairest.


So we now have a happy family of 4 hens living in their coop in the school courtyard. We would like to say a massive thank you to Mr Haywood and his family who look after them (spoil them) when school is out!


Y3 and Y4 loved their African Drumming workshop on Friday 9th March!

Please park safely and considerately around school


Dear Parents/Carers


Please could I request your serious attention to this issue:

Parking around school can be difficult, especially in the morning rush and at home times. The road outside school is a dangerous place every day because of increasing volumes of traffic, congestion and parking at these busy times. This is an increasingly serious concern for school and for parents. In the crucial interests of our children’s safety and out of respect and consideration for local residents, we ask very earnestly that drivers avoid double parking, dropping off on zig-zag or double yellow lines, parking on pavements and obstructing driveways (even partially). Whenever possible it would be beneficial if children who live in the village could walk to and from school.


Thank you, Sue Oakes, Headteacher.

We Sang our hearts out for the Mayor of Rotherham!


On Friday 22nd September a group of our children were invited to sing for the Mayor of Rotherham at Todwick Church Hall. The children sang beautifully and the Mayor was super impressed! Well done everyone!
