Collective worship and our values in action

Mothering Sunday 2024 - celebrating and showing love and appreciation to all the mother figures in our lives.

We welcomed a family of donkeys to school just before Christmas as part of our badge giving ceremony. Each child received a wooden hanging decoration that was personalised for them. - a message of love for each child.

Eco club May 2023: today we made 'plates of wonder'. We enjoyed looking at and talking about all the beautiful things around us. Then we used our imagination and shared what we thought they could have been to a much smaller person...a dandelion clock was a parachute and a speedwell flower was a hat.

We invited a past pupil, Tom Branch, into school to tell us all what it's like to train to be a Police Officer. He inspired us all and it was great to see him try out the handcuffs on a couple of children! Thinking ahead about our future selves is so important and Tom did a great job of explaining how the key learning skills of resilience, responsibility and resourcefulness are necessary in the workplace as well as the classroom.

Children's Mental Health Week: we joined this important national initiative with a series of assemblies based on connecting with others. Looking out for loneliness and taking time to make connections.

Our Carol Service was beautifully lit with handmade lanterns.
