Our partnerships within the Local Community are essential to the smooth running of the school and to enhancing the children’s experiences and opportunities.
We have an excellent relationship with our local Churches and regularly visit them, learning about local history at Lytchett Matravers Methodist Church and holding music and carol concerts at Lytchett Minster Parish Church. We have links too, with the Parish Council and work closely with them on matters that affect our school, local environment and our neighbours in the Village.
We also have links with several local businesses and charities and the children learn about supporting their local community as well as receiving support from people outside of the school.
Our Student Voice vote on a termly basis to decide which local or global charities we will suport each term. We regularly help to raise money for the Poole Hospital Children's Ward, Mosaic and Help for Heroes as our local charities, and we have visits from them to do workshops and information sessions about their work. We have also raised money for Children in Need, Sports Relief and Superschools.
Annually we also have visits from the Fire Service, Dorset Police, RLNI and the Schools Safer Communities Team (SSCT). Learning how these and other professionals fit into our community is important for the development of our future global citizens.
We value our relationships with all members of the community around us and they provide an important resource to enhance the children’s learning, preparing our children for life in modern Britain.
