We are at the 'Heart of the Community'. We take part in and support many village and Hope Valley events as well as entertaining the community and fundraising for village appeals.
To ensure your children arrive and leave school in safety, please respect the area and do not park on the grassy area on the corner of School Lane, in private driveways or across gateways. You MUST NOT wait or park on yellow lines during the times of operation shown on nearby time plates. Double yellow lines indicate a prohibition of waiting at any time even if there are no upright signs. You MUST NOT wait or park, or stop to set down and pick up passengers, on school entrance markings.
Well Dressing..... A Derbyshire tradition that we all enjoy taking part in. Our Nursery children create a scarecrow too!
We entered a 'Design a new logo for Friends of Hathersage Station Competition'. This is the winning design which will be displayed at the station and on all paperwork.
We hope you all enjoyed the display of beautiful and creative poppies that every child made as a school contribution to the ‘Hathersage Remembers’ War Memorial.
Hope Valley Climate Action Visit
With Climate Change at the forefront of everyone’s minds during COP26 and young inspirational speakers like Greta Thunberg capturing the interest of the pupils, the school were pleased to invite Ghazala and Steve from Hope Valley Climate Action in to the classroom to discuss their experiences with our Year 4,5 and 6 children.
Ghazala shared her inspiring Antarctica trip with the children and allowed for lots of discussion about her first hand experiences as well as answering general climate change questions. The children followed this up with a card game activity that allowed them to think about the changes they could make at home and at school in order to reduce their carbon footprint! The children’s climate change pledges were written on their pledge card and taken home in order to remind themselves of the little changes they’d like to make.
The school look forward to welcoming Ghazala and Steve back in the New Year to see how they’ve been getting on with their changes both at home and at school.
