Friday 16th July 2021

This week, children have been celebrating their differences and learning about each other. On Monday, children explored the many different languages spoken by our school community, from Krio to Punjabi, Urdu to Latvian, Polish to Dhupadhola, and many more. Please watch our Welcome video below to hear some of the languages we learned together.

Hello and Welcome

As the week progressed, pupils and teachers explored where they are from and what it means to them. The various ways to express our identity were celebrated with our gallery at the end of the week. You can 'visit' the gallery by watching this virtual tour.

Finally, we have created this collaborative poem for you to enjoy. As you watch, why not ask yourself - where do you come from?

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Survey

At Victoria Park Primary we are committed to celebrating diversity and ensuring that everyone in the school is treated fairly and respectfully. We want to hear from parents and carers about how well we meet this aim. We would really appreciate your responses to this survey to help us improve what we do for our school community.
Please follow the link to answer:  https://forms.gle/N8ppD1NdbESGsRYb6  

Please help by telling others about the survey.

Spare socks and tights

Do you have any socks or school tights which your child has grown out of? We always keep a supply in our medical room in case younger children have any accidents or get wet through play. We would be grateful to receive any donations, which you can drop off to the school office.

Eid celebrations

I know many of you are looking forward to celebrating Eid next week, on either Tuesday or Wednesday! Please telephone the school office and leave us a message if your child will be absent. In line with Bristol City Council guidance, we can authorise one day of absence for Eid celebrations.

The Colston Statue – What next?

This message is from Bristol City Council:
The statue of Edward Colston was pulled down on 7 June 2020 during a Black Lives Matter protest in Bristol. One year on, the statue now forms part of a new display at M Shed to start a city-wide conversation about its future. The statue is on display alongside a selection of placards from the protest as well as a timeline of key events leading up to 7 June 2020. Tell us what you think about what happened that day and what you think should happen next. This is an opportunity to have your say on how we move forward together. You can learn more and fill out the survey by checking out the online exhibition and the survey. Click here for more information.

School Picnic and AGM

We’ll be holding our Annual General Meeting at 4pm on Wed 21 July (the last day of term) in Victoria Park on the grass below the playground. We’ll provide some bubbly (and soft drinks for the kids) and the AGM itself will only take 10 minutes – so sit back, relax, and find out all about what the PTFA has been up to over the last 12 months! Why not bring a picnic and catch-up with fellow parents and friends afterwards?

For many years, we’ve been operating in accordance with the model constitution developed by ParentKind for PTFAs. However, we’ve been unable to find a record of the meeting at which this constitution was formally adopted – so we’re planning to use this AGM to put that right! You can download a copy of the model constitution from our website.

What’s On 2021/22

I've put together a short booklet containing lots of essential information:

  > A welcome message from the chair of the PTFA

  > 6 easy ways to raise money for the school

  > Other ways to support your PTFA

  > A list of events for 2021/22

You can download a copy from our website.

At the end of a challenging year, I would like to express my personal gratitude to every member of staff here at Victoria Park Primary School. This year has at times been tough, but never boring; tiring but never lacking in reward. I feel privileged to work with each of you, doing a job we all love.

 

This is our final whole school newsletter for this year. Children return to school on Monday 6th September 2021. To all the children, parents and staff - have a well-deserved and hard-earned summer break when it comes. I am looking forward to many more years of VPPS magic.
