Headteacher's news

Devonshire is an important part of the local community and we are very proud of this.  It is also important to raise our children’s awareness of the community around them.

The local community has been used to support and enhance children’s learning.  So far this school year:

  • Nursery have been on a local walk to support their learning about different building types.
  • Reception and Year 1 children have visited Christ Church as part of their RE topic.
  • Year 2 have gone on a local walk as part of their ‘Street Detectives’ topic.
  • Year 3 have visited Beddington Park as part of their ‘Flow’ topic.
  • Year 4 will be participating in ‘The Easter Experience’ to support their work in RE.
  • Year 5 have visited the local Synagogue to support their work in RE.
  • Year 6 have visited a Buddhist temple in Wimbledon to support their work in RE and attended a ‘Young Citizens Day’ at the Sutton life centre.

We have contributed to and learnt about the local community:

  • Our harvest festival collected food for the Sutton Foodbank, a local charity. Mrs Love and Mrs Scrivens took some children to deliver our donations.
  • Our choir have sung carols to 3 local old people’s homes.
  • Our choir have sung carols at the Christmas lights being turned on in Sutton; this included singing in WHSmiths and singing on the central stage in Sutton town centre.
  • Every child in Devonshire made a Christmas card that they hand delivered to our neighbours – we had lots of messages from our neighbours thanking them for these cards.
  • Our Key Stage 2 children learnt about young carers, a visitor from the Young Carers Association came to speak to them in assembly.
  • Mrs Love and Mrs Rouse attended a school’s awareness afternoon at the Children’s Trust with two of our Year 6 children. We have raised money for this charity so it was a wonderful opportunity for the children to see how the money has been used.
  • We have raised money for Radio St Helier and the Children’s Trust; 2 local charities that we have close links with.

We have also raised money for national initiatives and raised children’s awareness of these charities and their important work.  These include:

  • The poppy appeal
  • Children in Need
  • Save the Children – Christmas jumper day

The school council have organised many of the activities to raise this money.
