Promoting British Values

Through its curriculum, extra-curricular activities, teaching and learning, Springside Primary School will promote British values. By doing so, we will ensure that all learners understand the values that have traditionally underpinned British society. The teaching of these values will promote cohesiveness within our school and community. We will prepare pupils for life in England where the population has an increasingly rich diversity of backgrounds, origins, beliefs and cultures by promoting the values on which our society has been built. By teaching pupils these values we will help all to become good citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Well done to all children who joined in 'The Big Morning Move' with Joe Wicks this week. As soon as we have counted the money, we will let you know how much you raised for this great charity event. 

NSPCC Visit

posted by Gillian Thornicroft

This week, the NSPCC visited us as part of their 'Speak Out, Stay Safe' campaign. They delivered an assembly for key stage 1 and key stage 2 children followed by a workshop for children in year 5 and year 6. They gave us lots of really useful information and I hope this will encourage all children to speak out to an adult close to them if they have something which is worrying them. 

A Willow Sculpture with Mrs Charnley's Memorial Money

This week, we were finally able to get our willow sculpture with Mrs Charnley's Memorial money, as willow can only be planted at this time of the year. It will spend the winter sprouting roots and in Spring it will grow leaves. The children are going to love sitting in the dome and running through the tunnel!

A very big thank-you to Mr Halliday for securing a grant for us of over £800! This grant has been given to us from The Masons and it will pay for some raised planters so that children in wheelchairs can access our gardening club. It will also pay for the development of a natural wildlife area and a wildflower garden in school. We can't wait to get started on our new project!
