Summer Term 2021

Exciting Things Happening at Symondsbury

We met with governors last evening to discuss all the exciting things happening at our school this term as we move forward and look towards the next year.  We have certainly hit the ground running and it is wonderful to see the hive of activity taking place in each class and the joy of learning.

Here are some of the things that we will be introducing and working on in coming months.  More information will be sent out and shared with parents through our newsletters and some Zoom presentations with staff. 

  • Forest School
  • Thrive – for pupils emotional wellbeing
  • ELSA – additional staff trained to support pupils’ mental health
  • Accelerated Reader – A programme to support and challenge children in their reading comprehension
  • We Day – Find out more on our Class Dojo page and in an email sent out to parents.
  • Outdoor Learning Spaces
  • Orienteering Activities/PE with Mr Gregory/Music & Country dancing with Miss Wakefield


We Day & Symfest – Friday July 16th

As you know we have achieved our 100 ways to change the World and are setting up our very own We Day event at school to celebrate our achievements but also us this event to spread the word further and try to involve other schools in developing their own projects.  How amazing would it be to have 100 schools do 100 things to make the world a better place?

So, I am setting up a working party/ volunteer group/interested group of parents/staff/governors and am inviting you to get involved.  It would be great to see as many of you as possible so please get involved in whatever way you can.  This Zoom session will be to introduce ideas and plans and will also link to our Friends Summer Symfest.  Obviously, all of this is dependent on Covid restrictions, but we want to plan positively!

The invite has been emailed out and also put onto Class Dojo but feel free to pop me a message on Class Dojo if you have any questions/ideas etc.

Please help us to make this an event to remember - especially after the challenges of this last year!
