The Headteacher was delighted to attend 3FF's inaugural launch of its Faith School Linking Programme on Thursday 13th October in Westminster.
Faith School Linking provides students of different faiths, beliefs and cultures with sustainable opportunities to meet and learn from each other through meaningful exchange. The programme actively supports teachers in cultivating essential skills for effective interfaith and intercultural work in the classroom and beyond, increasing recognition and respect for different beliefs and cultures.
The event was hosted by William Wragg MP, and was attended by a selected number of leaders in education, including policy, teachers, students, relevant MP’s and faith leaders engaged in interfaith work.

Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic time at their African mask-making workshop. They learned that each colour had a significant meaning and that each tribe used a different design. They got very creative designing their very own masks!!
Years 5 and 6 had an absolute blast making African masks. This activity is linked to our black history week; the children are studying about people of black origin and learning about the impact they made in the world!
Year 1 were inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy who creates art using natural materials. They had a fabulous time planning and creating their own land art outdoors using natural objects, such as pebbles and pinecones. Some children managed to do several pieces of land art using ideas from Andy's structures!
Year 6 have started their own "Business". They have bought a plot of land and are opening up a theme park. This adventure includes a lot of maths. They have been, drawing to scale, multiplying large numbers, working within a budget and calculating profit and loss!
