Ethos Group


This year's members of the Ethos Group are: Abi, Abi and Ava (Year 6), Olive and Muhammad (Year 4) and Sezer, Archie and Tyler (Year 3).

We meet every week and plan activities to enrich our RE curriculum and the ethos of the school.

This academic year, we organised assemblies, collective worship sessions and competitions for our RE week, Advent and Lent.  We attended an Ethos Conference at St George's Primary School and organised a whole school quiz, finding out more about the characters from the Bible.

Our most recent involvement was to organise a food donation box for out Lenten charity 'Infinity Initiatives'.  We visited the 'Pay what you can' Cafe and got to know the people who volunteer there.  We are planning to attend and support them regularly.  Our school raised over £600 during this Lent season.  Thank you to everyone who supported us.

Ethos Group


Key Stage 2 were given opportunity to apply for a position of an Ethos Group member in July 2019.  They presented their commitment and ideas of the future of the Ethos Group.  Samuel and Grace (Year 4), Muhammed (Year 5) and Olivia, Jacob and Zach (Year 6) meet fortnightly to talk about the current issues, our school's values and to plan activities involving all our pupils.  They also work with the school council.

 New Ethos Group pupils visited St George's CE Primary School in Hyde to meet other pupils and share ideas about Hope and Aspirations for our future.  It has been a brilliant and inspiring day! 


Look out for a a day full of activities on 21st October 2019!
