I thoroughly enjoy my role here at Bryn, St.Peter's because it is so varied and extremely rewarding, there is never a dull moment!
Here is what I do:-
The Walking Bus
To support our families with attendance and punctuality we run a walking bus service 5 days a week (weather permitting) from Landgate estate.
This a great way for our pupils to get to school. They are able to walk to school in safety with friends; making a fun start to their school day.
We meet at the shops on Dovedale Road at 8.15am and depart at 8.25am.
The children walk holding a colourful rope and wearing high visibility jackets.
If you are interested in using the walking bus. please fill in a form, available from the school office.
Please be aware that if we are experiencing adverse weather conditions, such as snow/ice or high winds then the bus will not be available and parents will recieve a text message at 8am on these occasions.
Cookery club is offered as an afterschool activity. Children are taught basic cooking skills, creating healthy recipes and learning about safety and hygiene.
Our Peer mentors are children from Year 6 that have volunteered to support our KS1 children during lunch and playtimes. They spend that time making sure that all of the younger children have a friend to play with and they help out if there are any disagreements between friends. They are also excellent role models for our younger children in school.
Our Playzone Leaders are children from Y5 that volunteer at lunchtimes to provide fun activities for our KS1 children to join in with. Activities such as ring games, hopscotch, soft ball games, skittles and much more. This ensures that KS1 children are kept busy and enjoy their playtime.
As part of my role, I encourage parents/carers to engage with school. Coffee mornings are an ideal time for people to do this.
We meet for a chat, to share ideas and make suggestions whilst younger siblings engage in play.
Coffee mornings run every Friday morning from 9am to 10am. There is no cost, just come along, get to meet other parents/carers whilst enjoying a cuppa and a biscuit.
Occasionally we have 'special' coffee mornings where we organise cake sales, raffles and games in order to raise funds for charities.
