Welcome to Aldrington CE Primary School
Aldrington CE Primary is a school community, founded on a lively and evangelical Christian faith, in which the educational and spiritual needs of each child are pre-eminent. We believe that children should live and learn in a happy, secure and stimulating environment. A place where they are valued as individuals, encouraged to grow in self-esteem and given the opportunities they deserve to reach their potential. As we foster respect for each other and our environment and develop tolerance and understanding for the cultural diversity of the world in which we live, we seek to lay Christian foundations from which children can grow into caring and responsible adults in society. The school motto of ‘Learning God’s way’ along with our 6 values of love, integrity, responsibility, achievement, sense of community and respect, underpin all we do.
Getting ready for Christmas! Our Parents of Aldrington (PoA) came in for the morning so that every child could stir-up our Christmas pudding ingredients. The pudding mixtures were then presented in their bowls to the whole school in a celebration assembly. The mixtures have all been divided into individual pudding containers and are being sold at our Christmas Fayre tomorrow. The festive season has begun...
THE HISTORY of Stir-up Friday.
Our school Stir-up Friday comes from 'Stir-up Sunday', a Victorian tradition. The Christmas pudding traditionally contained thirteen ingredients to represent Jesus and his disciples. It is traditionally stirred (while making a wish) by each member of the family in an East to West direction, to remember the Wise Men, who visited Jesus in the Nativity story. The garnish of holly represented the crown of thorns placed on Jesus' head at Easter.
