PCSO Update

Earlier today, the Junior PCSOs were lucky enough to meet with PC Harris and look inside a police van. They were shown specialist police equipment and talked through what happens during particular incidents/responses. The Junior PCSOs then reported the findings of their traffic survey, completed on Wednesday 12th June, to PCSO Jones and PCSO Jeffries who then supported them in how to educate parents/children and tackle problem parking going forward. The Junior PCSOs, PCSOs and Miss Morris worked as a team to write something for our school newsletter. Make sure to take a look!

International Evening!

Art News!

Birmingham Arts School recognised Raddlebarn’s commitment to the Arts earlier in the year, when they commissioned their cultural landscape work, where Raddlebarn was awarded number 1 in the West Midlands for their partnership work in schools.

They are now hosting city-wide awards and Raddlebarn has yet again been recognised and have been nominated for 4 categories and Miss Lowry specifically for 1 award.

We were nominated for:

  • Drama award for partnerships with Birmingham Hippodrome, for the Birmingham REP sand for Stan’s Cafe
  • New partnership Award with Birmingham Hippodrome

Miss Lowry has been nominated for The Changemaker Award by a number of organisations.

This is what Bhavik Palmer from the REP has said about her:

” Angela Lowry has made a remarkable contribution to arts education at Raddlebarn Primary & Nursery School. Angela’s dedication and leadership in promoting the arts is truly commendable, and her nomination is a testament to her impactful work. The judges would like to reiterate that they feel Angela is an incredibly strong candidate for this award and she has gone above and beyond to enrich the lives of their students through arts and cultural learning. We would like to convey our sincere appreciation for her continued commitment to fostering creativity and collaboration within her school community. Angela’s long-term commitment to embedding arts practice in schools, her efforts to instill creativity in young people, and her advocacy for the importance of arts in education are all deeply valued. Her legacy of providing opportunities for students, teachers, and artists alike will undoubtedly continue to positively impact the lives of many. We are grateful for Angela’s contributions and the positive influence she has had on arts education. “

Bake Off 2024

We have a fabulous Bake Off this week! Well done to all the chefs in KS2 who did an excellent job. They have made French Tomato and Mustard Tart followed by a Blueberry Smoothie. They were marked on their skill, organisation, presentation and how each thing tasted.


Walk to School Week

Next week, 20 – 24th May it is Walk to School week. We will be encouraging families to walk, bike or scoot to school.   We know this is a little difficult for families who don’t live close to school so alternatively, you can ‘park and stride’ which means parking a little further away from school and walking the last bit.
We all know that exercise and fresh air is really good for our health and helps to reduce pollution in the environment!   There will be stickers and rewards for those who have joined in.
