Whole School Events
Welcome to our whole school events page!
We would like to share some of the extra-curricular learning that we all take part in as a school community. These range from special themed days/weeks to charity events. It's all part of our aim to provide our children with a curriculum that is purposeful, current and valued.

Road Safety Awareness
Last week was our “Road Safety Awareness” week. With the evenings getting darker, we want our children to know how to keep themselves safe. Our slogan “Be bright, be seen!” threaded through the week.
Our junior Road Safety Officers, Flynn and William, helped to lead the run and judge our competition and answer children’s questions.
Children were taught how to keep safe in assemblies, PSHE and ICT lessons. We held a competition for the best ”Be bright, be seen!” helmet or rucksack design and Isabelle was the winner. Congratulations Isabelle!

The development of the Woodland Classroom Autumn 2015
Wednesday 26th August 2015
Our thanks go to DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) Eastleigh branch and Waitrose employees in Chandler's Ford and volunteers came together to help clear a huge section of the overgrown school woodland. The rain tried but failed to dampen spirits and the results of their work are fantastic. This work entailed ripping out on fence, creating a new pathways, cutting back and raising the tree canopy, clearing Hawthorn bushes and a very large amount of spikey brambles. Due to the weather we also had some of our volunteers painting the entrance, toilet and kitchen area of the new woodland.
The school would like to thank our colleagues from DWP and Waitrose, the work they have done really shows the value of community spirit and the giving of time to help others.
