Our Mission Statement:

 

Eco-Team

 

To protect and preserve our natural environment, as well as to raise the awareness of how to protect and preserve for the rest of the school to follow suit.

 

School Council

 

Our School Council represents the views of all of our pupils. 

 

Our School Council gives our children the opportunity to make their voices heard, and feel like a part of the whole school community.

 

We have regular meetings to think about how we can bring a positive change to the school. We discuss how current policies are doing, whether they are working, as well as by thinking of new, exciting ideas to bring to the school environment.

 

We promote an ethos of taking responsibility for our day-to-day schooling lives, however big or small.

The projects we are looking at this term: 

  • Macmillan Coffee Morning
  • Citizenship Award 
  • Litter Picking
  • Fortnight Switch Off
  • Christmas Projects

 

We will again be participating in Macmillan Coffee Morning, raising funds for this fantastic charity by holding a cake sale at the Junior school and asking for donations at the Infant School.

 

Our Citizenship Award is a project that all the children of the school can participate in, it is all about contributing to your own community (family), your local community (school) and the wider community (local area and nationally). The School Councillors will really take the lead with this in the coming year, supporting the rest of their class with what activities they need to complete, how many in total from each section, the time frame of their participation and leading an assembly around launching this project.

 

Litter picking has been such a focus for the last year and the children really enjoy being a part of this environmentally friendly activity. This term we have teamed up with the Scouts, Cubs, Brownies, Guides, Rainbows and Beavers to support the local community in keeping our surrounding areas free from litter. We will making sure that Mumbery field, the allotment and our schools are checked and any litter picked up and disposed of appropriately.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

 

I am delighted to announce our participation in Macmillan Coffee Morning, raising money for cancer-related charities, this year. The school council representatives have been very excited and keen to get involved in the community, both locally and wider. Macmillan Coffee Morning is a wonderful way to show friendship within our school and help others around us.

 

It is lovely that we can hold a more ‘real’ coffee morning in school this year, to showcase our fantastic young bakers as demonstrated last year.

 

The events will be run differently across both the schools and they are outlined below:

 

  • Our event will take place on Friday 24th September.
  • Children from the Junior school can bring in a batch of cakes to be sold (no nuts allowed at all).
  • Children from the Infant school will need to bring in one cake for themselves (no nuts allowed at all).
  • Each child will bring in a donation for Macmillan.
  • Children at the Junior school will bring in 50p (along with their donation) to purchase a cake at the sale.
  • School council representatives will collect the donations at both schools and also run the cake sale at the Junior school.
  • Photographs of the event will be taken and put on the official School Council page on the website and up in the halls.
  • The cake sale at the Junior school will take place during playtime in the morning.
  • The Infant school will enjoy their cakes at a suitable time during the school day.

 

Thank you for your support and I can’t wait to see your creations!

We had an amazing Macmillan Coffee Day! Everyone really enjoyed their cakes and we learned about the importance of the Macmillan charity and the great work they do.

 

We are so pleased to let you all know that we raised a fantastic £442.64! We should all be really proud of ourselves!

Community Badge Award

 

We are really excited to announce our next project for the year. We are going to be working with our local and wider community to help all walks of life. Therefore, we are going to be starting at home and working our way out in a variety of different activities to show our engagement in the community. We have different stages to achieve through this programme which are outlined below. Keep checking back to see how we're getting on! Anyone can join in and bring in their completed checklist to gain their award.

Children in Need

 

On Friday 19th November, we are running an event around raising money for Children in Need.

 

We are going to be having a pyjama day!

 

In addition to that, each year group/phase is going to have an activity that they are going to complete within a set amount of time and this activity will be sponsored.

 

The activities are:

 

EYFS – Jumping jacks for 1 and a half minutes.

Year 1 and 2 – Half burpees for 1 and a half minutes.

Year 3 and 4 – Throwing and catching for 3 minutes.

Year 5 and 6 – A relay race.

 

All donations will be made online through our Just Giving page (linked at the bottom) so there will be no collection of money necessary.

 

These activities will be done in the afternoon on Friday at the Junior school and during PE lessons throughout the week at the Infant school. Photos will be taken so you can see your sponsors go!

 

I hope you will join us in supporting this brilliant charity.

Salvation Army

 

The School Council are really keen to support another fantastic charity this year, The Salvation Army. Every year, there is a gift giving ceremony at the Infant School and this year is no difference, the good thing about this year is that The Salvation Army are able to come in and collect the gifts themselves which is just lovely.

 

Attached is a poster created by some School Councillors outlining the details which are also listed here, there will also be a video explaining why it’s so important to support others at Christmas time.

 

We hope you will support us in this great cause.

 

  • Gifts to be brought in on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th December
  • The gift giving ceremony around the tree is Tuesday 7th December
  • No presents to be wrapped or labelled

POSTCARDS FOR KINDNESS

 

Hello!

 

We are continuing with our efforts to support the community with our Postcards for Kindness, so please do read on if you would like to get involved.

 

We are implementing an initiative to show our appreciation and love for the wider community.

 

Postcards of Kindness is about writing postcards and connecting lives. Please find the attached link if you would like to know more: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/discover/2019/october/postcards-of-kindness/

 

The outline of the project is as follows:

Children write a postcard to a resident at a nursing home from up and down the country, so they feel connected to the outside community. I think now more than ever they would really appreciate that.

 

You do not need to worry about sending it off or finding the address. If you bring the postcards to either office in the Infant and Junior school, it will be passed on to me and I will send it off! You won't address the card to anyone specific either - so don't worry about that!

 

I will share with you a template for writing your Postcards of Kindness, should you wish to use it!

 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me through the school office.

 

Miss Trayte :)
