Thank you to all our wonderful parents for the generous donations for Harvest Festival! All of the food items that were donated today will be taken to a local food bank to help families in need.
School has just been awarded the prestigious ‘Learning Outside the Classroom’ Mark – Gold Award, in recognition of the outdoor and off-site opportunities which we offer our children (aged 2-4) and the work we do in terms of promoting learning outside of the classroom with other professionals. We are very pleased about this as it offers us recognition of something which is an absolutely integral part of our provision and which research shows is vital to children’s development, well-being and learning.
We are now one of only 20 schools in the UK to have this award and 1 of only 2 nursery schools http://www.lotc.org.uk/lotc-accreditations/lotc-mark/lotc-mark-accredited-schools/
LOtC Mark is intended to recognise existing exemplary provision, and to support schools in enabling all children to have access to meaningful LOtC experiences. Full details can be found here http://www.lotc.org.uk/lotc-accreditations/lotc-mark/
The Big Toddle
We have been very busy in school today, raising money to support Barnardo’s. There has been a tasty cake stall running all day and the children have made masks, flags and ribbon rings to accompany them whilst they toddled their way around the field! Altogether, we raised £75.00 to support this very worthwhile charity.
