15 September 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am delighted to inform you that the judges of this year’s Speaker’s School Council Awards have selected our school council’s playground project as highly commended. This year, the competition received hundreds of entries which makes receiving this special recognition from the judges even more exceptional.

To celebrate our children’s achievement we have been awarded a digital badge which you can see at the bottom of our school website pages. Our school council received a special message of thanks for participating in the competition from the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt. Hon John Bercow and the Speaker’s School Council Awards team.


We are very proud of our school councillors for participating in the competition and for all the hard work that has helped the project come to life. As many of you know, there were several fundraising events for our project towards the end of the last academic year. Plans are afoot to launch a whole school design competition and to start work on our play areas very soon. Watch this space!


Have a great weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
