Community       Home


Welcome to our community page. We are currently in the process of updating this space so keep looking to view the exciting things that we do to in our school and local community.

Community Group

We now have a community group in school, a child from each KS2 class was elected by other class members. The children are involved in helping in our school and local community. Watch this space for upcoming events!


Healthy Fruit Tuck Shop

The children from the community group have now successfully set up a healthy fruit tuck shop. The children will be selling fruit every morning break for 20p to the children in KS2.


Solan Connor Fawcett Charity Easter Competition

To thank the children in Vane Road for their support, Mark Solan (founder of the Solan Connor Fawcett Charity) donated some Easter eggs and hats. The competition involved decorating bags to be given out in the charity shop. We were very impressed with the quality and effort that the children in Vane Road put in to decorating the bags.


Solan Connor Fawcett Charity Shop Visit - March 2018

To help the children gain an understanding of how charities operate, the children visited the Solan Connor Fawcett Charity shop in Spennymoor. Prior to the visit, year 4 children kindly donated some items to take to the charity shop. On arrival, Mark Solan (the founder of the charity) explained how his charity helps local people in the community who are facing cancer. The children were interested and asked lots of questions. The children were then given a tour of the shop and were impressed to discover it had a treatment, beauty area and wig room! In the shop, the children helped serve the customers and arranged the donated  items. The children's response to this visit was very positive and the children felt good that they had helped someone. After the visit, the children reported back to the rest of KS2 in an assembly, which they created their own power point and answered questions from the other KS2 children.

Chinese New Year

To celebrate Chinese New Year, the community group children decorated biscuits with a fortune and sold them to the children in school.
