As you will know, we are working closely this year with Eddie Odhiambo and Northampton Town Football Club on a number of initiatives. Eddie is helping us to run a number of programmes in school, including delivering additional PE lessons and leading various reading groups around school. He is also helping us to deliver our assembly programme based on 'Respect'. The children are enjoying learning about Walter Tull, as part of our work for Black History Month, which takes place during October. They are enjoying learning about not only his football career, but also the part he played in World War I. The children are able to talk knowledgeably about respect and how to respect other people and property.
Alongside our work around Walter Tull, we have taken the opportunity to streamline our school values, so that we can all engage with them more easily. We have kept the best of our existing values and integrated them with the Premier League Primary Stars values for school-aged children. We have also ensured that our staff values mirror these, so that we are all living according to the same ethos. Our new values are outlined below. We'd be grateful if you would discuss them with your child from time to time. As always, your support is very much appreciated.
