We work closely with all areas of our school community from the PTA to Governors as well as extending our links with other schools in the locality and with our local church and care homes. Our charity work focuses on local, national and international charities, including Melons Mission, please see the link on the right for more information.
Other projects have involved working with final year teaching students from Chichester University. The 'Making Change Happen' projects at Southbourne Junior School focussed on the outdoor environment with extra funding from the PTA. The creation of the meadow was a very successful development to our school grounds, creating a space for plants and wildlife to live and flourish, whilst also providing shade and seating for reflection and thought for our children. To see how the project progressed please visit the students blog:
Our Chichester University 'Making Change Happen' for 2022 is focussing on a raising aspirations project aimed at broadening pupils' future career opportunities.
The two student teachers creating this project with us have worked with the Student Union, University Lecturers and our children to create a video about the University aimed at primary aged pupils. Alongside the video, they have planned a visit to the University where the pupils will be able to see some courses in action and ask questions to the university students.
