Year 1 visit All Saints Church

With the festive season upon us, it is important to understand the true Christian meaning of this time of year. In order to do this, Year 1 class paid a visit to All Saints Church in Peckham so that they could hear all about the Christian message and the story of Christ.

They learned about the features of the church and acted out the Nativity. We took some pictures of the visit, which can be seen in the gallery below.

Bishop Karowei visits our school!

We enjoyed a lovely Eucharist Service with Bishop Karowei and Reverend Adams this week.  Faith Group lead the service and Year 6 received the bread and ‘wine’ or a blessing.  Bishop Karowei spoke about the importance of Compassion through the parable of the Good Samaritan.  He encouraged us to show kind actions to others when they are in need and to avoid laughing at them even though we may feel like it.

Bishop Karowei also blessed and opened our new prayer space in the playground.  This will be a special place for children and adults to use for reflection and personal prayer.

Faith Group enjoyed a breakfast meeting with Bishop Karowei.  They found out more about him and his role by asking questions such as, “When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?”  We learnt he used to be a doctor before he was selected to be the Bishop of Woolwich.  What a great day!

NSPCC Visit

The NSPCC visited our school on Wednesday 13th November and delivered their Speak out. Stay safe. assembly to share information with your child about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries.

It was a very worthwhile and empowering session for both pupils and teachers. They spoke to the children and staff about the valuable work they do across the country, and talked about how important it is for everyone in our school community to join them in their ‘fight for every childhood’.


Talking PANTS with your children

 The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe – and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help you carry on the conversation afterwards. That includes ‘Talk PANTS’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words or even mentioning sex.

The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone.
