Local and Wider Community Involvement
Children have many opportunities to take part in wider community events, such as sporting activities involving other schools and musical performances to audiences made up of people from the local community. At a recent concert one member of the audience said, ‘Thank you for giving us so much pleasure’. The school also encourages children to play a role in many charity events each year and participation in community involvement outside of school is recognised and celebrated. Children are encouraged to develop their entrepreneurial skills at regular school trade fairs. We have a specific member of staff who is responsible for developing these links; if parents are keen to establish community links they should contact the school office.
As well as learning a modern foreign language while at school, the children are also involved in other global work, either with our partner schools or through the curriculum which aims to help prepare them for living in a multicultural world. We regularly have visits from people from around the world, e.g. Ugandan farmers, Spanish teachers.
