I am Mrs. Pam Bates and I am the Communications and Marketing Officer at school. My role encompasses a variety of things designed to support communication and fundraising within the school community.

I produce the school bulletin on a weekly basis, which is created based on contributions from throughout the school community and includes Mrs. Norton's weekly headlines, important notices and information, features of interest based on activities, issues and people within the school. You will also find details about events, after-school and holiday clubs as well as key dates and fundraising updates.

A very exciting project that I am working on is to raise funds for our Solardome Sanctuary. This is going to be an incredible and innovative space designed to support wellbeing within the school and the wider community. You can see regular updates on the fundraising progress here on my webpage.

I thoroughly enjoy producing press releases for the school and being able to celebrate all the amazing things we do here from the poppy wall we created in November 2018, through to celebrating difference with the Ups of Downs and more recently our incredible space week. Again, press releases can also be viewed on this page.

I work closely alongside our PTA team and as well as being the current Vice Chair I also produce all good of the marketing materials to promote the PTA and other school events. Many of you will have probably seen me strapping up posters around school in all weathers, which is something I love doing no matter what! I am also often making teas and coffees at events, making squash at discos and I love my bingo calling twice a year.

If you have any fundraising ideas or suggestions for things to include in the bulletin, please get in touch or chat to me if you see me around school. I am always keen to hear from you :-). My email address is [email protected]

The Sanctuary

We are so excited to tell you we have now secured all the funding for The Sanctuary. The building will now be a Rotunda Roundhouse, we feel that this will offer a lovely welcoming space for our children and will be the primary place for our wellbeing activities. The Rotunda will be a handcrafted and bespoke timber framed eco-building.

The ability to move to a different environment will support our children with varying needs and ensure their wellbeing by offering them a specific space to use for discussions and gentle activities. as well as providing a dedicated space for circle time. This will be an emotionally safe environment within which teachers can work with children to help them with the social and emotional aspects of their learning . We are so proud to be making a start on the next phase of this project and we want to thank you for all your help in getting us this far. We will keep you updated with how the building is progressing once we make a

start!
