On Wednesday 26th September, Tom Tugendhat, MP visited Edenbridge Primary School to open the new Early Years’ provision.  The new classrooms and outside area will significantly enhance the educational opportunities for the very youngest children.

 

Tom Tugendhat, MP said, “I was delighted to officially open the new classrooms at Edenbridge Primary School. They are in the process of a complete turnaround and The Pioneer Academy, who now run the school, have an ambitious vision to make the school one of the best in the local area. It was a pleasure to spend time with them, pupils, and governors and hear just how excited everyone is at the school with the progress that can be made. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Edenbridge in the years to come.”

Tom Tugendhat, MP was pleased to meet members of the children’s School Council during the opening ceremony and later for lunch.  They explained how the school is a good place to be: “The school is better and we like coming to school.  It’s great to see our work displayed.”

The Head Teacher, Clare Butcher said, “It is so important for our children to have a good early education; it is fundamental to their future success.”

Jo Lakey, Director of Education for The Pioneer Academy said, “Our children appreciated the opportunity to meet their local MP, Tom Tugendhat and talk about their school.  During the visit the School Council discussed their exciting plans for our Edenbridge Citizenship Award.”

TOGETHER OUR FOREST AND CHILDREN WILL THRIVE

P1050431On Wednesday 12th September, Mike Angell, Kent County Chairman and Roger Gough, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education, visited Edenbridge Primary School to plant the first of many trees as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy Project.

Lee Mason-Ellis, CEO of the Pioneer Academy, said, “The visit was a huge success and our guests were honoured to plant the first tree as part of the project.  The school council will now decide where to plant the remaining trees.  Throughout the visit all the children across the school were a credit to us all, showing focused learning and exemplary behaviour.” 

The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy is a unique network of forest conservation initiatives, which involves all 53 countries of the Commonwealth.  Overall, 30 trees will be planted within the school grounds to create a forest for future generations to enjoy and learn from. 

Headteacher Clare Butcher said, “We are really excited to be starting this project in our school by planting the first of our 30 trees which will enhance our school site and the educational environment for our children.”  Whilst visiting, the guests were very impressed with the learning within the school environment and the recent changes undertaken by the staff at Edenbridge Primary School.  They commented on the hard work and commitment of the staff to make Edenbridge an exciting learning community.
