Villages

Our primary school is deeply rooted in our community, and we value greatly our partnerships with local community organisations and individuals. We want to make the most of the vast life experience, expertise and generosity that exists in our local community. Through these partnerships, pupils not only learn valuable new skills, they also come to appreciate the importance of citizenship and "giving something back".

The Orwell Chapel Orchard, a unique and historic green space in the middle of Orwell, has provided the setting for some fun and interesting outdoor activities, such as den-making, woodland sculptures, nature walks and mini-beast hunts. Our snow-drop planting project produces an early spring display that is admired year after year.

Remembrance

We are extremely grateful for the important contribution made by individual members of our community to our Wednesday morning guided reading programme. This wonderful team of volunteers give so much to our school, and our pupils benefit enormously from the individual and small group attention, the chance to enjoy books and reading together, and to discuss what they have read. If you have some time on Wednesday mornings, and would like to participate in this fun, rewarding and worthwhile activity, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us.

We support cultural and community activities, events and projects in all our catchment villages. We visit our different parish churches to participate in special church services, such as Easter, Remembrance Sunday, Advent, Christingle and Christmas services.

We provide publicity for local community events via our school newsletter.

If you represent a local community organisation, and you have an idea, a project or an event that you want to tell us about, please contact us.
