Community Plan

The governing body have been looking at the ‘community’ aspect of our Federation. Governors recognise the significance of the work with our stakeholders; pupils, parents/carers, staff, the wider community, the Diocese and the Local Authority, to the success of the Federation. We discussed how our mission statement drives our interaction with our community and to provide clarity for everyone, we have agreed a ‘Community Plan’. The aim of the plan is to ensure our engagements are meaningful and beneficial for everyone.

Dementia Friendly Choir

Since earlier this year a small group of Year 5 and 6 children have been going along to the West Wight Dementia Friendly Choir to help with the refreshments and to join
in with the singing. Taking part has been so valuable to both our children and the members of the choir. The ladies and gentlemen who attend love to see the children and have
made them so welcome, they really feel a very important part of this joyful choir.
On Sunday 20th August, Yarmouth sailing Club is presenting a ‘summer party at The Towers’ to raise money to support this valuable group in our community.
The invitation is open to everyone, please see the attached flyer for more details if you would like to go along to help raise funds for the choir.

On Wednesday mornings children from Year 5 & 6 have been given the opportunity to join with the West Wight Dementia Friendly Choir.

‘The dementia choir has a wonderful atmosphere to it. The children of year 5 and 6 love going to the choir and leave feeling happy and excited to go again. At the moment in the choir we have been singing songs by Mary Poppins, one of our favourites being Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. People at the choir are really kind to us and very helpful. At the break we help hand round the snacks and sit with the people, talking about all the things we have been up to. When we are singing we have instruments like maracas, bells and mini drums. We are so grateful for this opportunity.’

MAD-Aid Charity Fund Raising

Here is Rosie and Leo handing over the money that the year 4 classes raised through their book sales in PSHE.
We raised an impressive £440 across both schools!
Victoria Dunford, founder and CEO of MAD-Aid charity, came to collect the money. Victoria has received the British Empire Medal from Her Majesty the Queen II. She was the first Moldovan born to receive a medal from the Queen. Victoria told us that despite the honour of receiving this amazing medal, the most incredible moment of all is being able to help so many people through the charity work that they do.
We know the money is going to a great cause and will help so many during this very difficult time as their charity work is ‘dedicated to the people who need it most.’
A huge well done again to Year 4, and all their families and friends, who helped donate books and support the book sale.
