  • Children's Hospital appeal

    Published 05/11/19

    Dear Westminster Cathedral

    Children's Hospital Pyjamas is a yearly appeal, we are a group of people who collect donations of pyjamas for boys and girls aged new-born to 18 to donate to hospitals up and down the UK. The hospitals then gift the pyjamas at Christmas time to EVERY poorly child, no matter their illness/injury. This means that every child has new pyjamas to wear for when Father Christmas visits on Christmas Eve. We would appreciate it if you can donate new pyjamas which will be given to the children. A collection point is in the school office. This appeal makes such a difference to the children and families in hospital over Christmas, it brings comfort and love at a very emotional and fearful time. We hope you join us in this amazing appeal.

    Children's Hospital Pyjamas Registered charity number 1185739

    ‘Anti-bullying week’

    Monday 11th – Friday 15th November 2019

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    Next week is ‘Anti-bullying week’. This year’s theme is ‘change starts with us’.

    The children will have a whole-school assembly on Tuesday morning, followed by class discussions and PSHE lessons around the topic of bullying.

    As a school, our main aims for the week are:

    • To understand the term bullying and what it means to be bullied.
    • To understand and describe strategies for dealing with conflict.

    On Tuesday 12th November we would also like the children to come into school wearing their ‘odd socks’. This is to remind us that we are all unique. Boys can wear odd socks and girls have the option of colourful tights/odd socks. No donation is required.

    We will also be holding an ‘anti-bullying’ poster competition. The competition is open to all children across the school. The winner will be included in our new and revised anti-bullying policy. The deadline is Thursday 14th November. Winner will be announced during our celebration assembly on Friday 15th November.

    Thank you for your continuous support.

    Miss Figueiredo and Miss Simmons
    PSHE leads

  • International Day. Friday 18th October

    International Day

    Thank you to all the friends and families who contributed to Friday’s International Day. The children looked amazing in their array of colours. We had a busy assembly as each class showcased their learning and creativity from the week. I had to remind myself and the parents that all the work the pupils shared with us was from just last week as we celebrated One World Week. The celebration continued after school. The hall looked and smelt amazing, we had food and drink from around the world and the afternoon continued with a lot of laughter and dancing! I wish to say a huge thank you to you all for making it a wonderful celebration.

    I am pleased to announce the WCPS Friends raised £481.28

    This money will be put towards equipment for the playground at lunchtime.

  • Visit to the Home Office

    Published 23/06/19

    This morning I went with Julian, Aimee and Edward S to the Home Office. We went as we were invited by staff from the Home Office to hand deliver letters that were written by our school council. The letters were asking the Home Office to ensure refugee children are given a safe and legal passage to the UK. The school council wrote very clear, detailed, informative letters which we were proud to hand over. We were welcomed by the Home Office staff and it was an honour to have spent time there.

    Inter-school Chess competition.

    On Thursda, 14th June 2019 twenty five pupils from Year 3 to Year 6 represented our school at the Inter-School Chess competition run by Chess in Schools and Communities. Pupils from Churchill Gardens and St Josephs, Chelsea were involved in the competition. It was an intense afternoon, the children had 5 rounds to play. I was very proud of the children, they are clearly transferring all they are learning in class into their game and competition. Many medals were won amongst the team and as a whole school team we came first achieving the highest score. Well done to all who took part.
