School in the Community
Working with the local and wider community is of high importance to all of us at Bedmond Village Primary. The school is continually developing opportunities for community cohesion. As a school we include everyone and organise various events throughout the school year.
The school always looks for new ways to involve the wider community in school life and get involved with activities and events in the local area too. We have an excellent reputation in the local community and each year our summer fair attracts a large number of local people.
We also actively encourage the children to respect the people in our community in many ways, for example, organising collections for local charities, serving at the village coffee morning and singing at family services at the 'Tin Church'. During our Harvest festival celebrations, we hold a Scarecrow festival and visit one of the local farms to gain a greater understanding how hard farmers work.
During our Christmas festivities, the children created their own tree decorations and hang them on the Christmas tree in the village to the delight of all.
What a success the Art Week was! As always, the quality of creative art produced by all classes meant that the Art Gallery looked stunning. All of the children learnt new skills during the week and, because of our theme of 'Celebrating Culture adn Diversity, we all learnt about artists and art around the world too. As always, our Year Six representatives also did a fantastic job of serving drinks and canapés at the event.
Congratulations to all of our runners who took part in the Tough Ten race in October. All of our runners were incredible and many of them beat their times from last year for which they should be really proud; all of the extra training clearly paid off. Not only were they fast, but all those taking part showed the important life skills of determination and perseverance.
As a sponsored event 50% of the money raised will be coming to our school for which we are very grateful; we will of course let you know the final sponsorship figure when all the money has been collected. Well done to all our Team Bedmond runners.
Some of the charities we regularly support are:
