Inspired by pupils at Ernehale Juniors
On Wednesday 8th November Mrs Corton and I had the absolute privilege of being invited to the Ernehale Juniors singing assembly. The reason for our visit was to present a number of prizes to the year 6 pupils who entered the ‘Book Blurb’ competition during the Year 6 Open Evening in early October. All pupils who visited during the Open Evening were invited to enter the competition when they visited the library. Mrs Corton then had the pleasure of reading the entries and deciding on an overall winner and the runners up. There were a number of runners up from a variety of local schools including Arno Vale, Arnold View, Coppice and Ernehale, the overall winner was Annabelle from Ernehale. Annabelle won a range of goodies including a book, a pencil, bookmark, chocolate and a £5 gift voucher.
We were both made to feel very welcome by all of the pupils from year 3 to year 6 as they sang us two songs by the Beatles ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ and ‘Penny Lane.
Well done to all of the runners up and the winner of the competition and a huge thank you to all of the students for welcoming Mrs Corton and I to Ernehale Juniors.

Braking Point for Sixth Form
As part of our commitment to give a broad student sixth form experience, we have assemblies given by outside charities and agencies. On Wednesday 1 st November 2017, we were delighted to invite all Year 12 and 13 students to a performance on Young Driver and Passenger Safety - "Braking Point”. The event dramatised the dangers of drink-driving, passenger awareness and responsibilities. Students were encouraged to think about this from several perspectives and were asked to reflect and contribute on how these issues affect them directly.
