Handball practice for Embark Federation!

I was lucky to watch a fantastic Handball session after school which was our first inter-school session for children at Smalley and Kilburn. 

This was a great chance to link together as two schools and practice before the competition in a couple of weeks time. This will hopefully give the children a slight advantage over the other schools attending but more importantly have fun and make friends with others from the Embark Family.

A huge thank you to Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for organising this and we are looking forward to the next inter school sports session in December. 

Well done children and good luck in the competition.

Afternoon Tea

Huge thank you to all the parents, grandparents and friends who came to our Afternoon Tea for Gold September.

There was a lovely atmosphere in the hall and we raised a whopping £240.

Superhero day 2017

Our annual superhero day for Gold September was another huge success this year.

The children looked amazing and we raised £396 by selling badges and wearing non uniform for this fabulous cause.

Well done to our super children!

Thank you BMWMAN

It was a real privilege to accept a huge cheque for Gold September today.

A parent at Smalley Helen Wright has been busy all year with her business and raised a whopping £1044.45 in exchange for free software upgrades for BMW cars.

This is such a generous act and the cheque was presented to myself, Mrs Evans and Miss Longdon as trustees of the charity.

Massive thanks to all at BMWMAN for such a kind gesture.

Thank you BMWMAN

Embark Federation - Forest schools training

All staff from Embark Federation received excellent training last night on Forest Schools/Outdoor Learning.

This was led by our very own Mr Goodburn at Kilburn Juniors and it was such an inspiring session that even the rain didn't dampen our spirits!

The staff took part in a number of well thought out activities that suit the outdoors rather than the classroom. What made the session even better was the enthusiasm of all of our staff and the creative thinking of how these can be adapted and used for different subjects and ages.

This is all part of our commitment to give our pupils a wide range of opportunities and a first class education.

Huge thank you to Mr Goodburn and all our staff for a memorable training session.

Enjoy the pictures below!

A Heart for Hannah

5 years ago today the school lost one of its ex pupils when Hannah Meakin tragically passed away after suffering a bacterial heart infection. The family kindly donated money to the school which we used to purchase our new sound system as Hannah loved the school shows.

Her brother Tom is doing a skydive today in her memory.Good luck Tom! Let's help him reach his £1000 target. The link is below.

Gary Wilson - Parents workshop

It was wonderful to see so many parents turn up to our first Federation workshop for parents led by the brilliant Gary Wilson.

60 parents from Kilburn and Smalley enjoyed a fantastic, thought provoking session on how boys learn.

The feedback was excellent and there was such a buzz in the room.

It is great to see a real benefit of the Federation after just 4 weeks as all our staff and now 60 parents have received first class training which we otherwise would have struggled to afford as single schools.

We look forward to organising another evening like this in the near future.

Gary Wilson Training

The staff from our Federation received first class training from National Speaker Gary Wilson on Fridays inset day. He spoke around a range of strategies that were particularly useful to engage boys with their learning but of course was useful for girls too. The day was thought provoking, entertaining and gave staff lots of useful tips and ideas that they can take back to the classroom.

We also welcomed a number of colleagues who joined us from other schools as well as two of our school governors.

Parents from the federation have been invited to a workshop tonight at 7:00pm. By working together as a federation one of the advantages has been that we can afford high quality training and provide workshops for parents such as the one this evening.

I look forward to seeing you there.
