This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

Primary Proms at the Royal Albert Hall

On Monday 13 October Years Five and Six travelled to South Kensington by public transport to attend the Primary Proms Concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
 
Barney Harwood from Blue Peter was our host for the afternoon and all the acts performing were aged 8-18yrs of age.
 
‘Metamorphosis’ was the theme, an exploration of change through the transformative power of music, with contemporary interpretations, by young musicians, of traditional music.  The concert opened with a performance by a female group who sang 'Dynamite' and many of the audience joined in the singing and dancing.

Next came a change of pace - the Luton Jazz Orchestra, an incredibly talented group of young musicians, with spectacular trumpet, bass, trombone, saxophone playing and singing.  Then a
youth orchestra played a fusion of jazz and classical music.
 
'Waterman's Waters of Whitby' followed, a song written and composed by a young traditional Irish band, with a modern twist.
 
‘Raggle Taggle Gypsies’ was then sung by a youth choir to bring the performance to a close.
 
Many thanks to Mrs Saunders for organising this event, designed to widen the children's musical horizons.  A big thank you also to those parents and Governors who came with us.
