More fun and games for the Royal Wedding Celebrations at Victoria

Royal Wedding at Victoria!

Friday, 18 May 2018

Never let it be said that Victoria School lets the chance for a good party slip by! So today, we celebrated Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding in style. There were drums and a band, a parade of wedding outfits made from recycled materials, a jumping castle, face-painting, a picnic on the grass and some special visitors. We welcomed 3 of our Governors: Clare Mills, Kristin Sanders and Peter Douglas-Osborn. But wait… were there some even more regal guests in attendance??? Did I see Harry, Meghan and the Queen herself?

UNICEF Rights Respecting School

Monday, 8 January 2018

At Victoria School our statement of Mission, Vision, Ethos and Values states:

Values: We value each and every pupil as an individual. We treat them with respect and dignity and support them to achieve and build their self-esteem. We include our pupils and their families in decision-making that will affect them and strive to support the development of the whole person.

This focus on respecting the rights of our pupils and students extends even further as we strive to create a school community in which the rights of all are respected and upheld.

Today’s pupils are the global citizens of tomorrow. Through the curriculum, we support our learners to become respectful, responsible citizens who uphold the rights of others.

We are proud to announce that we have now received Bronze status in UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools Programme, the first step to attaining full accreditation as a Rights Respecting school.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Thursday, 14 December 2017

Thank you all for your cooperation with our 3 days of snow closure. The campus certainly was a winter wonderland, but we were very happy to welcome staff and children back to school on Wednesday 13 December. Thank you to our wonderful site team who did an amazing job of hand-clearing paths and arranging for the rest of the site to be cleared.
