Billesley Primary School is committed to achieving excellence in all aspects of school life. We have the highest expectations for teaching, learning and achievement across the school. Our aim is to make learning enjoyable, allowing every individual to achieve their best and to nurture their talents, as well as giving them safety, security and the skills they will need to be active, responsible citizens and happy, caring adults in the future.

We recognise that to achieve this and for children to succeed, children need to be physically fit, resilient and mentally healthy; that is to say they have good emotional well being. And so we are committed to:

• Ensuring children have the knowledge and skills to develop good physical health and healthy minds.
• Developing in children skills and strategies that will stay with them into adulthood and will help then to cope with the worry and stress of life’s ups and downs.

Children who are mentally healthy have the ability to:
• develop psychologically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually
• initiate, develop and sustain mutually satisfying personal relationships
• use and enjoy solitude
• become aware of others and empathise with them
• play and learn
• develop a sense of right and wrong
• resolve problems and setbacks and learn from them

With all this in mind we are aiming to raise £30,000 to improve children’s well being. All money raised will be used to create inspiring places within our school and school playground to provide children with a range of physical challenges and activities, as well as providing quiet spaces for reading, mindfulness activities and mentoring.

Developments will improve children’s physical and mental health, and help them to become more resilient, through improving self esteem, confidence, a belief in self, problem solving skills and an ability to deal with change. They will have opportunities to be more active, engage in mentoring, help others, engage in mindfulness activities and access quiet relaxing spaces, where they can simply relax or share a book with their friends.

• Start Up donation from PTA £847.65
• Sponsored Run £1632.54
• Summer Fayre £1269.64
• Wake Up shake Up £312.70

At Billesley we LOVE a good book; adults and children alike!  We are determined to inspire our children to be wonderful little bookworms with a thirst for knowledge and the passion for a good old yarn.

Here we invite EVERYONE- children, parents, teachers, and all our lovely school support staff to recommend a good book that they have read.  Why not share what you have read by creating a book review and inspire others to read it too?

All recommendations published on the website will enter a raffle and each half term a winner will be selected to win a prize.  Don’t delay - recommend today!

( Also, make sure you read the book reviews to get the inside story and help you decide what to read next!)

Upcoming Events

Year 2 teacher David Cheshire and Nursery Teacher Andy Hammond will be joining this incredible event and will be running the marathon. Mrs Keogh’s daughter Becky and her friend Lucy Hill will also be joining the fun and will be running the half marathon.

They have all been training really hard and are eager to raise as much money as possible for the Red Tree Fund - for the benefit of all our children at Billesley Primary School. Pop along on the day to show your support and please give generously.
