April 2016 - Pfizer, Community First Project 

A big thank you to Pfizer! Over the Easter holidays we were very lucky to have 5 volunteers from Pfizer come into school and make good and paint some of our classrooms picnic tables ready for the summer term.  The volunteering session was organised by Community First as part of their Employee Volunteering Scheme.    We are very thankful that Pfizer have been able to provide us with invaluable practical support, and we are hoping that in the future we can continue to work together to help grow our very own scientists and business managers of the future!  

Barncroft Community Award - A message from Mrs Roberts

New Barncroft “Community” Award I am excited to announce that we are introducing a new “Community” award to help develop children’s sense of responsibility within and outside of school.  The children at Barncroft play a big part in the community and after going out to visit local shops and other members of the community, I have heard some lovely stories about how polite and respectful our children can be.   Going forward I would like to celebrate this and so some local shops and our lollipop lady have kindly agreed to nominate children they spot being a good citizen, for example:

  • Showing respect to property or the environment
  • Being helpful or considerate
  • Being polite to others
  • Showing good manners

Children will be given a certificate which they should bring to myself or Mrs Dayton.  Any nominations will be celebrated in assembly and mentioned in the newsletter.
