Local and global citizenship
Situated in the heart of Chiswick, we are very appreciative of the community that we are part of. We create many opportunities for the children to get involved in their local community, which include: inviting local senior citizens to our annual Harvest Show and carol singing to them at Christmas; holding an annual carol concert at St Alban's church, Chiswick; our choir singing at the annual Christmas light switching on on Chiswick High Road; participating in local ventures such as Abundance London (for which we won the Hounslow Business Partnership Award); inviting the local community in to share our Christmas and Summer Fair with us.
We also value the importance of our global community and explore further what being a global citizen entails through our curriculum and initiatives such as 'Language of the month'. Children in Year 3 and up are taught French and we offer other languages as part of our after school clubs.
The children are enthusiastic eco-citizens looking for opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle. At our most recent Fair we made huge efforts to cut down on our plastic usage at their request.
Children, staff and parents also actively participate in fundraising for local, national and international charities. So far this year we have raised money for the Hounslow Homeless Project, The Upper Room and Children in Need.
