Pershore Foodbank is now well established and feeds on average, 60 people per month. They have considerable amounts of food that has been generously donated and tell us that they have the capacity to feed more people. If you are struggling to make ends meet for whatever reason, we do have vouchers to give out.
Please do come in and either speak to Sam or Tracy in the office or ask for a personal appointment with me. Discretion is assured.
Congratulations to 6JA who receive a non-uniform day this week for being the class with the highest attendance last week - 99%
On 12th of February most of Year 7 went on an exciting trip to London. After many hours on the coach, we got to the National Gallery full of detailed paintings. We waited a couple of minutes then a kind curator came by to guide us round the gallery and she also told us lots of very interesting information about popular paintings; such as Monet which is one of the most expensive paintings in the whole world.
On the 9th February, the whole of Year 5 went on an amazing trip to the Leamington Spa Gurdwara. Gurdwara means teachers house. The man showing us around told us our first stop was upstairs to a large hall (Diwan Hall) with a sparkly stand (throne) in front of us. We all sat cross legged and listened to our tour guide. He told us stories about all the gurus and every last detail about Sikh beliefs. This included what to pray to, their teachings and much more. We all got to ask numerous questions. After that we went back downstairs and we separated into girls and boys. We took our shoes off, put scarves and hats on and went into the main hall where the Guru Granth Sahib (the Holy Book) was lying on silk cloths. A gentleman handed out a small soft food that was like fudge (This was called the Karah Prashard). I didn't mind it but it tasted very different to anything I had tasted. Finally we sat in the Langar, (the dining area) and had drinks and a biscuit. We asked our final questions and said thank you and goodbye. All of us had a great time and learnt a lot.
Autumn Term Sports News Round-Up
On the 23rd October 2014, Year 5 and Year 6 had a treat. We came off timetable for the whole day and were involved in the designing and making of candles.
Having come 2nd in the school’s cross country, I was asked to represent the school at the district cross country competition at Prince Henry’s in Evesham. I had to wear a white polo shirt, shorts and trainers. I had to warm up before I started to run because my muscles do not like being injured. When we started running, I felt like I was not going to complete the course but I managed to come 12th and I was so pleased. There were 50 girls and I got a Headteacher’s Award for my effort. It was awesome!
This school is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place; all staff, volunteers and Governors must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
