Abbey Park Middle School
Abbey Park Middle School would like to thank Hayloft Plants for the kind donation of plants which the Dig and Grow club collected and sold for school funds at the summer fayre. The club has also planted the beds around school.
Public Health England is advising that anyone planning on travelling overseas this year should seek health advice from their GP 6-8 weeks before they travel. This is to help minimise children and their parents acquiring infections abroad and becoming unwell on return to the UK. Where vaccinations are required, most are provided free by the NHS. A factsheet is available here.
Congratulations to 6CH who receive a non-uniform day this week for being the class with the highest attendance last week - 98.4%
Some pupils from year 6 and 7 went on a trip to Barcelona on 16th March 2015, travelling by coach and by ferry from Dover to Calais. When they got to Calais they travelled through France into Barcelona. Finally they arrived at a hotel called Hotel Campanile and went to their rooms to unpack and wash before eating their tea.
On the 1st of May a group of year 6 pupils drummed in front of the school. The drummers were Paige Thomas, Luke Sloane, Amy Liddington, Ellie Harrison, Edward Partridge and Cara Bille. The drummers practiced every Thursday to reach their level of perfection. All the pupils drummed brilliantly. There was also a surprise guest drummer, Mrs Nickells!
Some pupils from year 5 and year 6 were picked to represent APMS at a tennis tournament which was held at the De Montfort School in Evesham. Each pupil played 5 or 6 matches against other pupils from local schools. There were lots of players playing at different levels and some matches were really challenging. The day went well as the sun was out and most of us improved our skills.
While some pupils were on the Barcelona trip, pupils at APMS experienced a little bit of Spain. We were all mixed up group and year 5, 6 and 7 worked together visiting different rooms. Room 7 was turned into a Tapas bar, we were tasting all sorts. We also covered topics like bull fighting and flamenco dancing. We learnt to count and introduced ourselves in Spanish. In the D+T room we all collaborated in designing and making small Gaudi Chimneys. What a great day!
The atmoshere was great! There were year fives dressed up as land army girls, army cadets, sea cadets nurses and much more, and there were many great readers…. Even though it was a sad and solemn occasion it was also a celebration.
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.
