School and Village Links

 

The school prides itself on its strong and varied links with the local community. Care and concern for the local environment, people and places, are embedded in the life of the school.

One of the main sources of linkage is via the monthly village magazine, the Bulbeck Beacon, which all households receive free of charge. Joint events are both advertised here and reported on afterwards. Examples include the annual village Street Market which raises funds for both the church and the school, the school’s bonfire and firework party, a village ‘Apple Day’ to raise funds for Forest schools and the annual community litter pick. Also in every Beacon issue is a summary of school news which informs the local community of the special activities that have occurred during the previous month.

 

Links with the Parish Council are strong and can be illustrated by the involvement of the children in designing a new look for the facilities on our village green (the Denny) and the development of a wooded area now open to the public. A report of school life is always given at the AGM of the Parish Council. www.swaffhambulbeckpc.org.uk. This also provides a link to the Bulbeck Beacon.

 
Remembrance Day 2019
Shortly before the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, children from Owls and Robins made their way to the war memorial to represent the school at the village Remembrance Service. We listened as members of the community read the names of the people killed in World War I and then stood for a two minutes silence to remember the lives that have been lost. Our two eldest children in Year 6 and the two youngest children in Reception then stepped forward to lay a wreath on behalf of the school at the base of the war memorial. 
Well done and thank you to all of the children for representing the school so well at this poignant event.
