Inspired Playgrounds…

Most children were involved in lots of activity and games on our new playground markings today. Apart from being Martha's Dad, Ben Cox is the lead coach for 'Inspired Playgrounds' and he came in to help us all with an additional free session. Ben led the children in some playground sessions, helped explain how to use the markings to our [...]

We also do first aid…

Tonight is the school's second and final session on first aid training, with Liz Greenway from Abbeymead Safety Training. We're again, going to be trained up for a further three years - pretty much all our staff, including our football coach parents. Personally, I've possibly had up to 30 years of continuously being first aid trained, and I've got to [...]

Willow structures…

I wonder what the children will think of the willow structures that started to get woven together yesterday, up in the Forest Village? Thanks to Holly, Ted, Mandy, Mark and Pete for spending time in the cold, up behind Stepping Stones. The whole place is coming along beautifully! :-)

Gliddon and Squire X Country League Round 5 – aka ‘The MUDDY one’

Georgeham's team of intrepid cross country runners were reduced in size but not in gusto this weekend with Martha, Jet and Presley flying the flag for the school team in the U11 and U9 races.  The event was the first of the year and the 5th in the season and took place at Shebbear College (in the middle of nowhere [...]

Our Christingle Service…

Just a lovely evening's service. The Christingle - reminding us all about the wonderful world God made and having a candle to represent Jesus, the Light of the world. Thanks for coming and being safe with the candles! #WeAreCommunity

The state of this stable…!

I bet if Mary and Joseph had managed to get a room, the Inn would've cleared up before they arrived? They'll have to put up with a bit off a mess tonight. (Mike, where's your Hoover?)

We lost the debate (but that’s a good thing!)

Following on from our previous post, the debate went really badly and we lost... but then we were arguing in the position of a Packaging Manager and actually, didn't believe in what we had to put forward! Backtrack... Our Eco Council went to the Met Office building today to take part in the first ever SAS Plastic Free Conference. SAS' [...]

Eco Council; debating and wishing we lose!

Our Eco Council has been invited by Surfers Against Sewage to take part in a debate on Tuesday, one that's going to be extremely challenging... we're playing the part of a Packaging Manufacture and we're supporting the motion that the plastic free programme should be put on pause for another 20 years! This caused some confusion in our brief discussion [...]

Ofsted’s Report is live… and WE’RE GOOD!

Dear parent / guardian, As you will [...]
