Great School Council Meeting!

I had a fabulous meeting on Friday afternoon with four representatives from our school council.

We discussed some of their latest ideas including a Movie Night and also a School Paper or magazine.

The children loved meeting in my new office and I must say it was one of my best meetings this week!!

Our school council do a fantastic job and I look forward to seeing these ideas come alive over the coming months.

Shared Vision 2014-15

Our annual Shared Vision evening was held in school on Wednesday. All stakeholders were represented including; staff, pupils, parents, governors, members from the parish council and others from our school community. The School Council and PTFA were represented.

This year IanThomas, Strategic Director for Derbyshire County Council and our Senior Adviser, Carolyn Brearley also kindly gave up their time to be involved.

It was a wonderful event and was very skilfully led by our Chair of Governors, Sarah Armitage.

We celebrated successes from the previous year before looking at how we can 'stand out' as a school as we look to become an 'outstanding school at the heart of the community.'

We looked at what made us special as a school before looking ahead to what was positive and possible to achieve this year.

There were a number of good ideas including;

1. Using our new technology to enhance teaching and learning.
2. Improving learning environments inside and outside the school.
3. Improve resources across the school ready for inspirational learning.
4. Transform the hall so it is a vibrant, special place and the hub of the school.

This is our fourth Shared Vision session and it is wonderful to see how far we have come as a school since September 2011.

We were also very lucky to have talented artists Anthony Greentree and Lucy Truman who captured the event through drawings which will be brought to life around the school.....watch this space!

A massive thank you to all involved.

Our School Council get a very special treat !

Our Key stage 2 school council members were invited to the grand opening of the new equipment at Dobholes Lane Park at 2.30pm today. The children from the school council had been  consulted by Smalley Parish Council last year and were involved in the planning of the wonderful new facilities in our village. The children had a magical experience as they got to meet two Derby County footballers who had come to officially open the new play area. Chris Martin and Rhys Sharpe were great abassadors for their sport - not only did they sign autographs, pose for photographs and chat with our children they also played football with them ! Something our students will remember forever. What a privilege to watch. Mrs Evans and myself only wish we could have taken the whole school !

Many thanks to Smalley Parish Councill who have worked so hard to provide this wonderful facility in our village. Thank you also for a very special afternoon.

Chaucer School Council come to visit!

We have had a wonderful morning as the school council of Chaucer Junior School came to visit us after our tour of their school a few weeks ago!

It was lovely to see all the children and Mrs Upton and staff of course!

The children from both schools worked really well together again.

We looked at the possibility of linking up again next year when both schools study WW1.

Many thanks to all involved! Hope you enjoy the pirate ship picture below!

Exciting new playground designs!

The school council held a meeting on 18th June to look at and discuss plans for developing an area of the playground. We had two designs to look at and decide which we liked the most. Both designs were very good and the equipment looked great! They were both very similar however one was slightly cheaper. Our favourite was designed by Red Monkey, the company we used to design and build the reception playground. We look forward to seeing it completed.
