Community

At Glasshouses School we are very fortunate to have many strong relationships with people and groups in our local community.

We have close links with both the local churches and members of the local community are welcomed into school.

We are very lucky to have volunteers who come into school to: lead assemblies (this is on a range of subjects depending on the time of year and the topic), help with productions, listen to children read, help with different small group activities as well as talking to the children about local history and sharing some of their interests and experiences.

We work with our Village Association (GVA) on various community events, which include: hosting a Nativity play for the community and taking part in the Carols on the Village Green in December, May Day celebrations and the Summer BBQ.  We are also very proud to have strong links with the local Royal British Legion, who lead the very special Remembrance Service in front of the War Memorial held in the school hall.

Glasshouses Primary School Careers Day - 5th July 2019

 

At Glasshouses, we work hard to develop our children’s personal development in all areas. This includes the Rights Respecting work.  We are very excited that the pupils of Glasshouses will be taking part in the school’s very first Careers Day. This will introduce the children to the world of careers information and prepare them for future success in their next steps.

On Friday 5th July, volunteers from a wide range of employers will talk to the Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 pupils (aged 7 to 11) about their jobs and the range of careers open to these young people.  

The children will then, working in small groups, ask all the volunteers more detailed questions about their jobs including how they discovered what they wanted to do and what skills they need to do their jobs.
