Working Together For A Better Future For All
I wonder if, like me, you watched the Earthshot Prize award ceremony on Sunday evening? The five ‘Earthshots’, which aim to drive change and inspire people to work together to repair the planet, chime exactly with the UN’s sustainable development goals that underpin our enhanced curriculum. This half term, staff and pupils have done their bit by participating in lessons and assemblies focusing on sustainability, creating visual displays, reusing surplus materials and reducing printing. In addition, our pupils and families have enjoyed planning and launching a variety of sustainable projects from creating allotments and litter picking to setting up food banks and selling pre-loved Halloween costumes and uniform. I can’t wait to see what they will come up with next!
In other news, at our first trust board meeting, trustees approved the appointments of a new chair and vice-chair of trustees, Caroline Hoddinott and Andy Jobbins. I want to take this opportunity to thank Caroline and Andy for their commitment to the trust and to wish them well in their new roles. Similarly, my thanks go to our former chair, Emma Hughes, who continues to support the trust as a valued member of the board. My thanks also go to all trustees and SIB members, who generously give their time and expertise and work together to improve outcomes for all our pupils and families.
Finally, I wish you all a restful and very well-deserved half-term break and I look forward to hearing your ideas for even more sustainability projects when we return to school.
