Community Partnerships at Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill C of E Primary Academy is delighted that the Tescos store in Lydney has supported a community project, raising over £800 for the academy by holding a raffle, cake sale and inviting pupils to ‘bag pack’. The funds raised were used to further improve provision for the academy’s Nurture group, which caters for a small group of 5/6 pupils and is staffed by two supportive adults.  Nurture groups offer a short term, focused intervention which addresses barriers to learning arising from social, emotional or behavioural difficulties (SEBD), in an inclusive, supportive manner. Whilst benefiting from the nurture provision, children and young people continue to remain part of their own class group and usually return full time to their main class within 4 terms.  The nurture space, which was redecorated during the summer holiday when Tesco’s staff joined forces with academy staff, is also being used for the Breakfast Club, group work and meetings.

Pupils from Primrose Hill are also celebrating after winning a competition organised by The Forest of Dean MP, the Rt Honorable Mark Harper, to design the official Christmas card for the constituency. Winning young-artist, Isabelle Kiel, was thrilled by the news. Her design will be reproduced in the coming weeks.  In return for her hard work, she receives an invitation to spend a day in London with Mark Harper having a tour of the Houses of Parliament.   Congratulations also go to Piperjo Marx and Jasmine Maltby who were the Academy’s runners up.

Having learnt about the work of the British Legion, pupils remember the fallen on Armistice Day. Two Year 5 pupils took part in the Armistice Day commemorations at Lydney War Memorial on Wednesday 11th November along with other local organisations.  George Reece and Erin Hewitt represented the Academy in reading out names of the fallen from World War 1 and World War 2 who came from Lydney.  A two-minute silence was observed.  The standard bearers were Mr And Mrs Rudge, parents of a pupil who attends Primrose Hill Academy.
