Talented children in our KS2 department recently met with consultants from Kevin Murray Associates, an award-winning consultancy firm. They are working with Warrington Borough Council on their plans for the future…and they wanted our help. Our children are now involved in a town planning and regeneration project!
Jaz and Iain worked with our children to identify the parts of our town that are really great and worth keeping. The children also described the places locally that they feel need some attention. Finally, the children shared their experiences of local problems like congestion, litter, graffiti and people feeling left out of society (families who have recently moved into the area or who don’t have English as a first language).
The ideas, suggestions and proposals that the children came up with were stunning and Jaz and Iain have collected all of their ideas for the masterplan. The children’s next job is to write down their vision for the future of our town. Watch this space, we’ll share our regeneration plans with you soon…

Yellow team had a great day at Safety Central.
Year 6 led our Remembrance Service in church this morning. Their readings, poems, songs and explanations were moving, engaging and very interesting. They spoke with such confidence, reverence and respect, they were inspiring.
At the end of the service, Mr Roe, an armed forces veteran, former police officer and friend of our school, talked to us about the history of the poppy and how it came to be an essential part of remembrance.
Each class has learned about remembrance and in particular about The Great War. Beautiful, poppy inspired art work was presented at the altar and will be shared with the school display in church.
The poppies made in class featured the individual names of fallen soldiers from our parish. Their names are recorded on our memorial window.
Children and adults were moved by the Remembrance Garden at the back of church.
We’re very grateful to Year 6 for leading our wonderful worship today. The church was packed with families too – thank you for joining us. Many thanks to Mrs Howard-Armitage for so creatively helping our children to ‘be the best that they can be!’
