Great Wood Primary School

5th May 16


We are a school that likes to celebrate success – at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives. An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture involving everyone- children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership hoping that we can provide the best for every child.

The Big Pedal Competition 2016
Congratulations to all those who took part in The Big Pedal competition. Huge thanks to all the parents, families and staff who supported the children in cycling and scooting (especially those who braved the bike in the rain!). It was super to see so many children travelling to school in a healthy, environmentally friendly way and it was particularly great to see lots of people wearing helmets!

Nineteen children cycled or scooted every day for the whole week and received certificates and stickers. Four lucky children also won a bike bell, slap wrap or puncture repair kit in the prize draw.

Special mention goes to Miss Akister's class, who had the most daily cyclists and scooters.
