Crick Primary School

Learning together in a caring community

 

SMSC

At Crick Primary School we believe that we must develop the whole child in order to prepare them for 21st Century Britain. We aim to provide a safe and secure environment within which all children are able to grow and succeed. In order to do this, children need to examine and develop their own values and beliefs, and establish a considerate sensibility towards themselves and others.

Within school we endeavour to offer a broad and balanced curriculum to enrich the social, moral, cultural and spiritual experiences of our children. We celebrate each child as an individual, and recognise that every child is talented in some way. Through our curriculum we aim to provide a rich variety of opportunities to allow all children to experience true success. Throughout their time at Crick Primary School the children will develop their own:

  • values and beliefs
  • spiritual awareness
  • moral compass
  • sense of identify
  • awareness and understanding of a range of beliefs
  • understanding of culture

The children take part in a wide range of experiences throughout the curriculum and wider school life in order to equip them with these skills.

Christingle 2016

This year our Christingle service took place on Tuesday 13th December. We made the Christingles in our classes, thinking carefully about the meaning of each element:

Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand  the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.  

  • The orange represents the world
  • The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
  • The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations
  • The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness

We then shared a beautiful service with pre-school, our parents/carers and members of the community. There was music from Gabi and Connie, who played their flutes fantastically and we sang lots of Christmas songs. Once the Christingles were all alight we sang Silent Night together, it was a very special and peaceful moment.

Anti-bullying week 2016

As part of our Anti-bullying week activities, we had a visit from the Northamptonshire Police Blue Butterfly Project. PCSO Kirsten paid individual visits to our Foundation Stage and classes in KS1 and held a workshop for the whole of KS2 delivering this very important message. We also had a visit from the Guilsborough Academy Anti-bullying Committee with Bridie and Kieran sharing the anti-bullying message from a different perspective.Our thanks go to them for supporting our school.

 

Harvest Celebration 2016

This year we held our annual Harvest Celebration in St Margaret's Church. We walked as a school to the church and all classes shared their ideas and thoughts about harvest, through song, poems or writing. We learned about the history of harvest, harvest around the world and through song about harvest time. Our collection of produce, this year, was donated to Rugby Food Bank.
