Welcome to our NEW school events calendar!

We'll add whole school and class events into this calendar on a regular basis. You can click into the calendar to open more information / posters about the event where this is available. You will usually already have been sent emails/text messages about any events which involve your child/ren but we hope this helps you to keep track of our busy school calendar!

Have you seen our fabulous new banners featuring artwork by the winner of the Zig Zag competition? 

Well done Elsie, your illustration looks brilliant!! We’ve displayed the artwork from the runners up along the main corridor. Thank you to all the children who submitted artwork for this competition we loved them all!

 

And just a reminder that we’re in regular contact with Devon County Council who have agreed funding for a crossing patrol officer for our school. DCC have attempted to recruit, as have we, but we haven’t had any interest in the role so far.

 

If you’d like to be our crossing patrol hero you can apply to Devon County Council – the details are on the school website Vacancies page. While this is a DCC role, we’d love to welcome you to our school community!

Our school had the outstanding opportunity for children to take part in a virtual international music festival: “Musical wings of Spring”.

The Aim of this festival is to give SEN children the opportunity to experience the joy of making music, and to stimulate positive emotions and express themselves through music. Thank you to Mrs Tkachova for working with the children on this performance.

Through the universal language of music the children spread messages of empathy, teamwork and compassion.

The Withycombe 60 -

60 brilliant things to do while at our school.

 

Each year group has a list of interesting activities to work towards, with every class having their own 'postcard' to write down when they complete their activities.

Anti-Bullying Week

We had a special assembly for Anti-Bullying week. Our local PCSO spoke to children about bullying, with a specific focus on social media and online bullying. She was very impressed with our knowledge, honesty and emotional understanding.

Mr Scudder managed the KiVA anti bullying program for our school, and he said it shows how this had a very positive impact on our children.

The focus this year is online bullying - we have lots more information about online safety here:

We have several student advocacy groups including the School Council and our School Ethos Council with Mr Scudder. Members wear their badges in school so others can identify who their representatives are.

Did you know?

The plastic and metal parts of the badges we make in school can be separated for recycling, and we use an 'eco' seal which is biodegradable.
