Wear your sporty outfit day!

The School Council would like to raise money to buy some new football nets. They have been working alongside Hannah from Phunky Foods as their role as Phunky Food Ambassadors. They have already produced a short video to tell the Phunky Food what they would like to do to promote healthy living within school.

On Monday 19th June, they would like you to make a voluntary contribution to wear your favourite sporty outfit to school. (Suggested donation of £1-2.)

Any money they make will be matched by funds from the PE budget. They do hope you will support their plans.

The School Council will be our judges!

School Council Competition

The School Council have been working alongside Hannah, from Phunky Food, to promote healthy snacks at break time. Today, they planned and delivered an amazing assembly to the whole school.

They have also organised a competition to design a poster promoting healthy snacks. The poster will be used around school to highlight what foods are acceptable at break and why. There will be prizes for the winning entries. The closing date is Monday 17th October.

Competition Success for the School Council !

A big well done to the School Council for winning 2nd prize in a competition entered before lockdown. The £500 cash prize was awarded by the Rotary Club.

The Council successfully put forward a case for improving and extending the play area, to include a bark chip surface where tyres, logs and other natural resources can be used. In the future, they would like to add a summer house, raised beds and reflection area. This money will help kick start this project.
