Intergenerational Project (2018-19)

All of our Year 4 pupils have achieved ‘Dementia Friendly’ awards with Chrysalis. We have had three dementia lessons with a specialist teacher and groups of children are now working with members of the community in early stages of dementia and their carers.  We are so incredibly proud of the work that our eldest children are doing to help and care for others.

Lifesavers

We are in our second year of ‘Lifesavers’ – a community bank hosted in our school.  Children are encouraged to open a bank account and save what they can with a particular something in mind.  The focus is being a regular saver.  Any amount of money is valued.  Year 4 banking assistants work hard in our school to take pupil’s money, use an online banking system and make sure that the money adds up!  Children can open an account at any time.  When you are ready to withdraw some money there is a quick form to fill in and the money will be ready the following week.  Ask in the office if you would like more information.
