Our next event will be the Macmillan Breakfast Morning on Friday 30th September. We'd love to see you there from 8:30am. If you would like to donate any cakes, please drop them at the office - the more the merrier!
We are very excited to be working with GIST to promote road safety within school this term. It has strong links with PSHE through school too. GIST will be coming in, in the coming weeks to speak about road safety with large vehicles. Children will get the chance to see a lorry on site, and understand the scale of vehicle as well as stopping distances and the view the lorry driver has. We have also been running a road safety competition, with winners to be announced shortly. We're excited to share what we found out with you in the coming weeks.
Our School Council is re-elected each September. We take a democratic approach to this, with each class between Years 1 and 6 voting for two children to represent their views and to feedback whole school issues to the class. Our children take this role very seriously and are proud to take on this responsibility, as they understand that they can impact on change across the school, whilst ensuring their friends are well-informed about school issues.
Pupil voice and consultation is very important to us, and the School Council serves to represent the views and needs of the children throughout the school. They meet regularly, and have an annual theme linked to Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare, which explores ideas linked to SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural learning).
One of their key roles is promote our school REDSHOE values (Responsibility, Equality, Democracy, Solidarity, Honesty, Openness and Equity), linked to the aims of the CPRT (Cambridge Primary Review Trust) (Equity, Voice, Community, Sustainability, Aims, Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment).
Their monthly themes can be found below.
We had some great successes as a school council last year, take a look at some of them listed below:
Macmillan breakfast morning, the Penny Mile for Sport Relief, reviewing health and well-being in school, introducing the 'worry box' in every class, 10 minutes of fitness every day, Olympic and Rio Carnival event! Wow!
We had a fantastic Carnival Day in the last week of term, with an Olympic and Rio Carnival theme!
Everyone got fully involved, taking part in Samba dancing, drumming workshops, headdress making and Olympic events such as showjumping and sit-down volleyball.
We also had bouncy castles, and some great things to buy made by our classes during Enterprise week.
Thank you so much to everyone for you support and involvement!
A huge thank you to everyone who sent in money for the Penny Mile, we raised £434.29! The winning class was 5K who raised £59.97, 2R came second raising £44.42, and 3M came third raising £40.85 - well done everyone!
Our 'Penny Mile' for Sport Relief was a great success! All classes participated and luckily the weather held out! Thank you so much for all of your donations and helping the event to raise a lot of money for a very worthy charity.
