Keeping you informed

We want to keep parents informed of their child's progress, and about other activities in school. We recognise that good communication benefits the whole school community.

In this section you will find information about everything that is happening in and outside of our school as well as photographs and videos of our amazing children in action.

    On Thursday 16th November and Friday 17th November, Warwick Road was visited by the author, Pippa Pixley.  Pippa is a writer and illustrator who travels the country sharing her experiences with children.  Pippa began her visit with a whole-school assembly, before visiting individual classrooms to deliver engaging, interactive sessions.  She carried out workshops designed to guide children through the creation of their own stories and illustrations.  Every child was given the opportunity to create something of their own: a character, a page spread, a pop-up book.

  • Power of One Anti-Bullying

    Published 15/11/17
    Warwick Road Primary School’s children were lucky to take part in “The Power of One” anti-bullying show recently. Actors came in and used boxes, colours, and masks to vividly portray what bullying is, what can be done about it, and how every child has the power of one, the power to report and deal with bullying when they see it. The performance:
    • Explained the different roles in bullying: Bully, Target, and Bystander.
    • Showed examples of different types of bullying: Physical, Verbal, Exclusion, and Cyber bullying.
    • Alerted children that Targets need help and intervention.
    • Encouraged students not to be bystanders.
    • Emphasized the need for individual action to make the community a safer, better place.
    • Referred children to parents, adults, and teachers for further assistance and instruction.

  • Y1 at Jurassic Kingdom

    Published 16/10/17

    Year 1 visited ‘Jurassic Kingdom’ in Temple Newsam, Leeds to see a dinosaur exhibition. The children were in awe of these dinosaurs as we wandered through Jurassic Kingdom but the highlight for us was the dinosaurs coming to life with lifelike movements and roars! We also had the opportunity to dig up dinosaur bones in an excavation scene! It was a truly fascinating experience for us as we stepped back in time and walked in the midst of dinosaurs for a day!

He helped us to understand all the different rooms of a castle and how they were used. We listened to fascinating stories about life in the castle and its owners Lord and Lady Clifford.
