IOW School jumps from RI to GOOD

Ryde In Bloom

Children from Dover Park Primary School were proud to accept an award from Ryde Town Council at a recent celebration event at Ryde Esplanade Hotel.

The school received a Highly Commended for the Pride Garden they entered into ‘Ryde in Bloom’ back in the summer term. Well done to Mrs Meredith and her 'team'.

School Receives Active Travel Bronze Award

Dover Park Primary School are one of the first schools to achieve their Bronze Award as part of the 'Shift It' Active Travel Programme. The school worked with stakeholders to install a brand new scooter and bike storage area to encourage pupils to 'get active' on their way to school. The school is hoping to achieve the Silver level by the end of the year.

This term children in year 5 and 6 are taking  Bikeability L2 training so that they learn how to stay safe when riding their bikes to school. 

School Room in a Care Home

The reception children have been involved in a very exciting project during the summer term. Each week 10 of them have visited residents at Cornelia Heights residential home and during their visit they have engaged in a range of activities. The residents have loved seeing the children and each week the children have had lunch with them. The project was run by independent arts and as the project progressed we saw very early on that the children became accepting, tolerant and compassionate with the elderly residents, all necessary skills for ensuring a caring and inclusive society. This has been a worthwhile project, the children and residents have really enjoyed this. Information about the project has recently been published in a national care home magazine. 

Saving the planet and improving our Health

A large number of staff, parents and children left their cars at home and walked, scooted or cycled to school today. Children across the school took part with a fantastic 96% families supporting the day . Well done to all.
