We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Achievement Award Winners

Well done to our pupils for winning the English Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in English. Also, a big congratulations to Freya who won the Headteacher's Special Award for her performance in our Christmas school play this week, delivering lines and singing her solo perfectly.


Basketball practice with our Embark friends at Smalley.

It was a privilege to watch children from both Embark schools practice their Basketball skills earlier in the week.

Thank you Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for making this happen and to all parents for helping with transport.

Trailblazers Y5/6 - Winners!

Quality day in the snow. 

The children took on the Trailblazer Assault Course (TAC) and each team nailed it. All children were encouraging, supportive, determined and resilient. They showed great teamwork and ability to problem solve. 

There was a winning team, but only by a couple of seconds, however, because of their positive attitude throughout, they were all winners!

After the event, we had a bit of fun with the dog-sled, before returning inside and selecting words to describe our personal performance; again, these children constantly amaze me with their ability to self reflect and offer praise to their peers. Great job.

Trailblazers Y5 - problem solving and self-reflection

We started with reflections on the attributes needed to be a top TBer; we then took on a problem solving / team building assault course!

One team completed the challenge in under 30 minutes, and throughout they showed all of the attributes identified at the start of the session. 

Other groups found themselves struggling to find determination and give encouragement when things became challenging; they discovered that the greatest challenges are often in the mind. 

However...after thinking about their personal performance and reflecting on other ways of facing adversity,  they all pulled together and defeated the rest of the course; in the end, they all showed true grit and determination and came out winners!

Trailblazers Y3 - Fun in the snow

What a beautiful morning! We followed fox tracks in the snow and then made our own trails. 

After this, some took winter landscape photos while others thought about the personal attributes that made for quality TBers; with these thoughts in mind, we undertook problem solving challenges and focused on being supportive and encouraging to our fellow team members.

To finish, we made a dog sled, caught some huskies and went for rides round the field - mush, mush!

Well done to our pupils for winning the Mathematics Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in Mathematics. Also, a big congratulations to Talia who won the Headteacher's Special Award for her positive and determined attitude to learning which helps her to stand out each time Mr Hull visits Team Resilience. 


Phoebe Shows off her Skills

As we near Christmas, some of the children have been learning Christmas songs during their music lessons.

Phoebe is showing off her talent, playing a Jingle Bells duet with her teacher Elissa.

I'm you'll agree she sounds great.

Post a comment and let me know what you think.



Trailblazers Y5/6 - Fun and Games on a Beautiful Afternoon

Fun team building challenges were the order of the day today. 

The children rose to the occasion and supported each other wonderfully; the theme of the afternoon was Self Control, and the majority of the children rose to the challenge, having fun and showing buckets of enthusiasm, while remaining in control, ensuring their behaviour did not negatively impact on others within their group.

As with Y3 TBers, it was great to see certain members of the group beginning to show real leadership qualities, thinking of others before themselves and helping other groups to achieve!

Great work everyone, thanks for a lovely afternoon.
