Through his extraordinary example, His Royal Highness Prince Philip proved that true partnership has room for both ambition and selflessness — all in service of something greater. Our thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen, the Royal Family, and the British people. https://t.co/qbH2ycbcaA

Parents and support bubbles of school children can now get rapid Covid-19 tests twice a week. Order yours now. Around 1 in 3 people who have Covid-19 have no symptoms, and could be spreading it without knowing.

This is definitely true for us. We would not have been able to organise high quality remote learning whilst opening for key worker and vulnerable children without our amazing Mrs Szulc, Miss Lennox, Miss Stacey, Mrs Hamid and Mrs Shaikh. https://t.co/NtP5H8KwGb

53 years ago today, my father was taken from this world. 💔 I was only 10 years old when my father was killed, but at the time of his funeral, I fully realized the impact and importance of what my father was trying to do. Create a world of freedom, justice & equality for all. ❤️ https://t.co/vOt929bs7P

Domestic abuse goes beyond physical harm. It can be verbal, controlling behaviour and many other forms. If someone you know is feeling scared, isolated, and controlled because of the actions of someone close to them, they can reach out for help here: https://t.co/UjrptKDXo0 https://t.co/7RDw8tZVhf

Today is . At the age of 12 I was diagnosed with Asperger, a form of autism. At that time I had no idea what it meant. When I and my parents told people I was autistic, they always reacted with shock since I didn’t fit into the stereotype of autistic people.1/7 https://t.co/mW9Xe7J8xB

We currently subscribe to Charanga for our Music curriculum. More information can be found here: Charanga - Primary music curriculum, Secondary & Instrumental music.

Each week we introduce a piece of music to pupils. We usually do this during Monday's assembly. This year has started with no mass gatherings at school, which means no assemblies. Music is introduced via virtual assemblies which are played into classrooms. The music is introduced through those assemblies. This piece of music is then played during lunchtimes, as well as the music introduced in previous weeks. Pupils are therefore exposed to a range of musical genres, artists, composers and musicians. Below is the list of music we have introduced pupils to since September 2019. September 2020 began with Stand by Me by Ben E King. We feel this is fitting following the Covid-19 pandemic we have all experienced.
