On Friday 22nd June students and staff will take part in a special assembly to celebrate the Great Get Together. This is a national event organised by the Jo Cox Foundation. As you may recall Jo Cox was murdered in her constituency of Batley and Spen in 2016. The weekend of the 22nd-24th June marks Jo's 44th birthday. Jo's friends and family didn't want to mark her birthday and anniversary with a sombre occasion. So, the plan is to hold celebrations to unite communities across the country. The message behind The Great Get Together is a simple one: that we all have more in common than that which divides us. The assembly commemorates and celebrates her life and work to help young people develop their understanding of identity, diversity, community and equality.
On Monday 11th June, we were presented with an award for our students' participation in Sustrans Big Pedal 2018. The award was presented by Medway Council's portfolio holder Phil Filmer. A huge well done to the students who took part in The Big Pedal.
On Tuesday 19th June, the PTFA will be holding a tag day for students. Students are asked to donate a small amount of money (between 20p and £1) for a money tree game. We are also looking for bottles for the tombola (unopened bottles such as; shower gel, nail varnish, fizzy drink, squash etc.). Both will be part of the Summer Fayre, which is being held on Saturday 14th July. Thank you for your on-going support.
Today, from 1.45pm - 2.45pm, is our termly Yellow Zone Afternoon Tea. Parent & Carers of Yellow Zone students are invited to attend.
Teaching is outstanding because teachers are reflective about their practice. Teachers’ superb subject knowledge is used to engage, challenge and support pupils in a wide range of subjects. - Ofsted
