Our Community

There are a number of different groups who make up our school community.  Please see the links on the right.

Within our local community, we have strong links with:

Saints Philip and James Parish Church - we visit the church for our Harvest Festival and welcome Father Richard into school on a regular basis.

Up Hatherley Library - we take the childrnen to visit the library to gain experience of its function.  This often includes being able to listen to a fabulous story from one of the librarians.

Morrisons - we are really close to Morrisons so the children often go over there to look at the bakery or the cafe.

Glow Maths Hub - We are involved with theGlow Maths Hub led by Balcarras Teaching School, based in Cheltenham.

With the help of the strategic and operational partners, the GLOW Maths Hub aims to ‘shine a light’ on collaborative working across primary, secondary schools, and colleges in GLoucestershire, Oxfordshire , Worcestershire (hence the name ‘GLOW’ !) and beyond. 

The GLOW Maths Hub is keen to:

  • ensure all pupils, teachers and leaders have access to support, research and innovation that will improve the enjoyment and achievement of mathematics;
  • work with successful established mathematics communities across the region.
