Aspirational Learning

Some photos from our first One Goal Day.
On 17th September KS2 enjoyed their first One Goal day focused upon learning about and discovering their own aspirations. The whole of the day was provided by the company, One Goal and it was certainly an excellent experience. We started the day with an assembly for the whole of KS2 and then the children went back to their classes and took part in two workshops. They thought about things that were problematic in the world – from global to local problems. Then they thought about what they could do to help. They also thought about their own dreams and aspirations. We ended the day with a final assembly together. As you can see from the feedback forms (below) – it was very much appreciated by the children and a lot of learning and aspirational thinking took place. In January we will be having One Goal’s Resilience day which will look at 6 areas – Attitudes, Behaviour, Courage, Determination, Enthusiasm and Friendship. It is with these six areas that we are able to build resilience. One Goal will provide a launch day including classroom based workshops and then physical PE type activities. From there we will continue promoting the six areas to underpin our curriculum.  

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
