Caring for others
The Governing Body of our school are really committed to fulfilling their roles of holding the school to account, playing their part in the strategic leadership of the school as well as ensuring that the financial management of the school is undertaken properly. Even though they are all volunteers, last week we welcomed many of them into school for the morning to be in classrooms, and see for themselves the school in action. I know from speaking with them that they not only really enjoyed the opportunity of being in classrooms, as well as commenting on just how much is now, quite rightly, expected of children in primary education.
Yes, we were fortunate that the sun shone, but last Thursday was a great success when we welcomed a number of local schools to take part in a netball competition. There were many teams taking part, supported by enthusiastic parents. It was another excellent example of sport being played just in the right spirit- competitively, fairly and with respect for both the game and opponents.
One of the distinguishing features of last term was some of the year 6 actively wanting to do something for other local group or charities. So on Friday, we had some year 6 selling items they had made, written or drawn, all for the benefit other people. Young people really do have compassion and care for others.
