Sparkle and Shine

'Sparkle and Shine' is a wonderful assembly in which we celebrate the success of children and their families. It is upbeat, fun and exemplifies everything that makes our school amazing!'


Each week children are nominated by staff or other children in recognition of their achievements of the school's Core Values.


Parents of children chosen to be our Sparkle and Shine pupil of the week are invited to come along to our assembly and celebrate their child's achievements.  We look forward to welcoming parents and family members to our assembly - we will be sure to put some sparkle on you too! 

Whole school Sparkle and Shine: 9:15am every Friday

You are invited to join us for a cup of coffee or tea, in the community room, before assembly once you have drop off your child/children.


All prize winners are gifted with a special book of their choice!

Sparkle and Shine during COVID-19

During the Covid-19 lockdown / school closure period we continued to celebrate all the fantastic learning taking place.

In the first lockdown, each week our Sparkle and Shine video celebrated children's achievements in learning at home and how well our Core Values were being demonstrated during this time, you can see one of our videos from this time below.

Following this, in September 2020, we moved to live Google Meet assemblies. Celebrating each week with parents, classes and staff using a live Google Meet each Friday morning. It was a great way of bringing everyone together when being altogether in the same physical space wasn't possible.
