Rights Respecting School Award
In June 2017 we were so proud to be awarded Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award. This is a huge achievement this means that we teach children about their rights according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and model rights and respecting in all our relationships.
Pupils are encouraged to think about how their behaviour and actions affects others.
We are working towards Level 2 and have an assessment booked for 10th July 2018.
Fair Trade Enterprise Fair
This year Fairtrade fortnight was held from 23rd February to 11th March. To celebrate this and to support our work towards Rights Respecting Award Level 2 we held a Fairtrade Enterprise week which ended with a Fairtrade Enterprise fair. On the week leading up to the fair we carried out fair trade activities in class and planned and made fair trade products to sell at the fair. To add a bit of competition the class who made the most profit were the winners.
The results were as follows:
11th Place Miss Hunter’s class £11.45
10th Place Mr Simpson’s class £14.90
9th Place Year 3 £25.84
8th Place Year 4 £31.00
7th Place Nursery £32.04
6th Place Year 6 £35.21
5th Place Reception £39.66
4th Place Year 2 £41.00
3rd Place Mr Gardiner £46.96
2nd Place 2 Year Provision £48.83
1st Place Mr Coxon’s class with a whopping £68.10 profit
We also raised £122 from sales of Fairtrade products from Gateway to the world. This £122 has been donated to the Fairtrade foundation via Gateway to the World Durham.
