Could YOU be a Parent Governor?
We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor - do you have the skills and spare the time to be involved? We have a fantastic team of governors who work together with staff to improve standards at Asmall. We hold one full governors meeting each term, which all governors attend. In addition, each governor chooses a sub-committee to join, and they meet once a term too - to discuss things such as premises, finances, staffing, the curriculum, standards, and health and safety. Being a governor gives you the opportunity to make a real difference and the chance to contribute to the good of the community. Working as a school governor will give you the opportunity to work with a wide variety of people and the chance to gain an understanding of the decision making process in school. There is training provided by the Local Authority on various aspects of the governor role. If you think that you would like to join us, please see Mrs Speak before Thursday 15th November. Thank you
Art Gallery - Summer 2018|
We had a super art gallery in school - everyone produced a piece of art work which was framed and displayed professionally by a local company. The children were very proud of their work!
Forest School Fun!|
In the Summer Term, both Year 1 and Reception have been involved in Forest School each week. They have travelled to Tarleton Academy to use the woodland area behind the school and have completed Forest School activities with a coach from West Lancs Sports Partnership. Each class has been divided in two and half of the class attended in the morning with the other half in the afternoon. The children had a wonderful time and the staff report that the children were very well behaved whilst doing lots of learning too. Forest School is fantastic for physical development, team building, risk assessing and problem solving. We are currently in the process of organising our Forest School for next summer!
Fun in the Snow - March 2018|
The children had lots of fun during the snow, which came in March this year. Everyone enjoyed playing snowballs, building snowmen and playing games.
Penwortham Music Festival|
Our Brass Band, from Years 5 and 6 entered the ensemble section at the Penwortham Music Festival and played two of their favourite pieces. Mr Alistair Burrows, their music teacher, and Miss Nicola Tinnion, our Year 5 teacher, have been working with the children over the past few months and they were all very excited to enter this competition! They also entered the non-compeitive choir section too! Thank you to all parents and friends who travelled up to Penwortham to support the children. They played and sang very well and we were extremely proud of them. Each child took home a certificate and the group shared their £20 prize money, with a party celebration in class. Well done everyone!
Working happily together to ensure opportunity
