Global Neighbours – National
Anti- bullying week 12th – 16th November 2018
The focus of this year’s national Anti-Bullying campaign is ‘Respect’. Children at school have been thinking about what the word respect means and how we can show respect to others that we work with. On Friday the children wore odd socks to school to support the national campaign. Odd socks represented being unique and showing what make us all different and special. Children were able to discuss their individual strengths and abilities and understand how important it is to respect these in other people.
British Values Week
Conor Burns MP came into school to talk in assembly at the end of our British Values week. Over the week the whole school learned about democracy, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance and rule of law. It seems that British Values and children’s rights have a lot in common!
Every year the children of Moordown St Johns lobby our local MP, Conor Burns and ask him to speak to the Prime Minister on their behalf.

Marathon and Multi-Sports Day in support of the YMCA
The whole school supported YMCA to help young people with shelter and restoring relationships. The children thought about their own and all children’s rights to home and family life and with the support of Y Man and a team of sports experts, enjoyed their right to the best possible health by experiencing a whole day of exciting and challenging sports and activities.
Brave representatives from School were invited to take part in a marathon along Bournemouth beach front to raise more funds for YMCA.
