On Tuesday 12 children from St Joseph's in Years 4,5 and 6 played in the TAG Rugby Tournament at Ormiston Sudbury Academy. We were victorious in all our group matches and progressed to the semi-final against Nayland, which we won. We were focussed and played with ambition throughout the final but we unfortunately lost. We can console ourselves that 2nd out of 15 schools is still a good achievement.
We are delighted to announce that on 1st October 2014 St Edmunds were awarded the Bronze Linguamarque and are the first school in Suffolk to be awarded it since the pilot was run. Primary Languages (PL) have become a statutory requirement in schools as of September 2014 and the Suffolk Linguamarque is a new initiative that has been launched to enable schools to audit how languages are embedded in their curriculum. We are now going to work our way through the scheme and begin our journey towards applying for the silver award. Thank you to Mrs Wallace (our PL leader) for her hard work in supporting all of the staff to embed a range of langauages within our curriculum provision.
A huge well done to the St Edmund's gardening club for being awarded ‘Gold’ in this year’s Bury in Bloom Green Fingers Award Scheme. A group of the pupils who attend the gardening club enjoyed attending the award ceremony with Mrs Vince and Mrs Leighton at The Apex in October 2015. Not only did they collect their Gold award, but they also received an 'Outstanding Achievement' award too to acknowledge the amount of work that had been put in to set up the gardening area.
We’re proud of the success that their hard work has achieved.
