Traditions and Special Events

We place great emphasis on having traditions and special events throughout the school year.    This is to create opportunities for performance; to bring the school together as a community; to raise money for charity and to create a sense of belonging.

The children love these events and participation and parental attendance when required is usually very high. A typical year, in addition to PTA events, will include:

  • An Egg Race – where the children are challenged to build an egg-mobile to transport an egg the length of the school hall
  • A Spring Bonnet Parade for Reception children
  • A Daffodil Breakfast - where Reception children and their families have an Easter breakfast in the hall
  • A Day for Change – where something or everything changes to highlight a charity
  • A Sports Day – combining competitive sports and family picnics
  • A Summer Fair – with lots of children’s enterprise stalls
  • A Leavers’ Barbecue and assembly– for our Y6 pupils
  • A firework evening – with rides, candyfloss, popcorn, glow sticks and lots of fireworks.
  • A Christmas Concert – singing carols and sharing the Christmas story
  • Numerous sharing assemblies/’Fabulous Finish’ events, enabling parents to see what has been going on in class
  • Community Games – sports competition with locality schools
