Since taking over the leadership of the school in March 2017, Mr Murdoch (Head Teacher) and Mr Ming (Assistant Head Teacher) have placed a great deal of importance on developing a positive and productive relationship between the school, parents and wider community. As such a number of improvements have come to fruition and we thank those parents who have supported these initiatives for the betterment of the children's learning.
The SLT identified a patch of underutilised land and together with parents set about the building of 3 large planters. This has afforded opportunities for EYFS to develop a range of skills in the areas of learning. The pupils planted flowers, and food that was cooked to say thank you to the parents who built and installed the planters.
During Easter Break 2018, the school, PTA, parents and staff teamed together to convert a patch of lawn (that was unusable during winter months) into a 'quiet area' which alllowed pupils to use the area all year round. Pupils are able to read, draw and socialise in this new area at break times. It also provided an additional outside space for learning.
Renewal of Fences
The SLT enlisted the help of the MCVP, a team of volunteers to source materials and labour for fences around the quiet area and to section off the pond. It was wonderful way to further strengthen the community links. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who contributed.
This summer, a team of parents and staff worked together to develop and install an amazing sensory garden which has been a popular part of the outdoor area. Thank you again for all who helped in making this new area become a reality.
Macmillan Coffee Afternoons
Additionally parents and members of the community have come together to support good causes. October 2019 saw the third annual coffee afternoon dedicated to the wife of one of our school governors who sadly lost her battle to cancer a few years ago.
