Message From CEO – 3 February 2019
Making our Trust a wonderful place for pupils to flourish is at the heart of all that you do each week. In our schools, across our hubs and throughout our central support team, there is a sense of purpose, passion and energy. It has been wonderful to hear about and see pupils growing, developing and learning with enthusiasm.
This wonderful picture made me smile when I visited St Saviour’s Infant School last week.
Louie, Jay and Liam from St John and St Francis Church School, took part in the cross-country event held at Kings College Taunton on Monday. Mr Gordon reported that they were great ambassadors for the school.
Pupils at St Michael’s Church School welcomed author Carina Axelsson. Carina spoke to pupils about fashion, feminism and their futures. Pupils said they enjoyed listening to her and having their books signed.
Trustees visited St Michael’s this week and were greatly impressed with the pupils’ work on display. The Headteacher and Chair of Governors’ spoke with pride about their vision of the school and the values that are so important across our Trust.
St Andrew’s Church School in Taunton have been having enormous fun learning new skills from Circus Bezercus.
Simon from the Fire Service also visited the school to talk to the children about keeping safe and the different ways to do this.
Year 1 at St Stephen’s Church School also loved their visit from the Fire Service and had a great time learning all about the fire service and what to do in the event of a fire.
Children at the school have also participated in taking these amazing photographs around their school with @naturebygreen. The pictures are now on display at the school.
Bathampton Church School are encouraging their pupils to be fit and healthy by taking part in runs around the school field.
Elm class and Hazel class at Batheaston Church School took poetry writing out into the community with poetry displays in Bathampton meadows.
They’ve also been taking junk modelling to a very creative level.
Positivity, energy and commitment shines brightly each week in the wonderful learning opportunities you all provide for pupils across our Trust. It is because you work so supportively within schools, between schools in hubs and across our trust you are creating high levels of engagement and motivation for learning. Each week your work is a joy to see and share.
