Lunchtime update

The school council now meet every Thursday afternoon with Mrs Evans. Over the last few weeks they have been discussing the positive changes that have been made at lunchtimes.The school council have shared their thoughts and views at meetings but also wanted the thoughts and views of everyone in school so they planned and produced a lunchtime questionnaire for all pupils to complete this was distributed last week by council reps and collected in for today's meeting.Today they read through them and collated the information - this is what they found: The majority of children enjoy lunchtimes and the changes that have been made.Here are a few quotes from the questionnaires: "I think it is really good because there is more equipment and things to do" "Tennis is super fun for everyone but more football" "Thank you for the activities " "Clean all the playground less mud more grass!" "Music in the dining hall" The school council would like to thank everyone for completing the questionnaires and to the dinner ladies for all they do at lunchtimes. This will be discussed more at the next meeting. Image

Meeting 10th November

The main item on our agenda today was how to Report Back after a meeting all children were given a handout to give to their class teacher. Reporting back needs to be done as soon as possible after a meeting.The school council belongs to everyone,so they all have a right to know what happens in meetings and they want to know when we discuss the things they have asked it to.

We had a very productive meeting this afternoon talking about Link Romania and Friendship week. Mrs Evans and Mrs Hudson are currently looking into purchasing hoodies for all school council reps. Image

Lewis welcomed everyone to the meeting and wished Mrs Evans a Happy Birthday!

The main items for discussion were tuck shop and rewards for lining up after playtime.

Shared Vision Number Five!

2015-09-14 16.50.37
It was a real pleasure to run our annual shared vision workshop in our freshly decorated hall last night.  It certainly is a lighter, brighter more creatively inspiring space to work in!  The creative juices were certainly flowing during this, our 5th shared vision review and refresh, as some brilliant ideas were aired and shared.

As usual, we had the privilege of wide range of school stakeholders in attendance, including the staff team, governors, parents, members of our school council, members of the Parish Council and Reverend Lisa from the church.  We believe this wide range of views and experience helps us generate a host of excellent ideas and keep us on track with our vision to be an outstanding school in the heart of the community. The fact that we involve and engage the whole community in this process is part of this vision.

The vision workshop is also a great opportunity to take stock and celebrate the successes of the previous school year.  This session saw a bumper crop of 'success bricks' each laying the foundation for another successful year ahead.

Mr Crawford also talked through some big ambitions that may be explored as part of our desire to keep raising the bar as a school and look ahead to future possibilities.  These include the possibility of becoming a teaching school or federating with another school and continuing to develop an exceptional learning environment.  He also talked about interesting research opportunities and collaborations with other learning establishments.

The teams then created 'ideas clouds' with exciting ideas including developing a library space, a special commemoration of the Queen's 90th birthday, a theatre-style hall with professional lighting, updated PE equipment and fresh playground lines.

There was then the traditional 'sign up' to the new vision map and the chance to declare some actions to be taken straightaway to get things rolling.  The sharing of a possible new newsletter format happened even before the workshop ended!  This early commitment to action certainly demonstrates the whole team's willingness and enthusiasm to bring the vision to life.

2015-09-14 17.47.54

Many thanks to all who took part in this productive, vibrant and innovative session. The new vision map will be up on display in the school hall. This is very much a live and on-going process so if you'd like to make suggestions or contribute in anyway, please do!
