News & Events

October – Welcome Liturgy
Our new reception children have settled very well into our school family. We had a very special Welcome Liturgy in school as we officially welcomed our new reception children as part of our faith community. Each child received a blessing, a name card (made by their Y6 buddy) and a candle. The liturgy was filmed and sent out to parents, and the children performed a fantastic rendition of ‘Great Big God’.



October – Harvest Festival
A big well done to all the children (and their families) for a fantastic collection of food and toiletries for the Selby foodbank. These will make a big difference to people in our local community. During a virtual Harvest Festival, we learnt all about the fantastic work that CAFOD do to support those in need around the world. Our non-uniform day raised £208 for CAFOD. Well done, everyone!

October – Tins on Tuesday – Class 5
A big well done to Class 5 for filling the box (overflowing in fact!) for the Selby foodbank and achieving the Mini Vinnie foodbank challenge! They have earned a 10 minutes extra playtime voucher and a certificate.

September – New School Student Council
Congratulations to our newly appointed school student council. Children in each year group were democratically elected by their peers and have already had their first couple of meetings. They have set up suggestion boxes in their classes so they can gauge and represent the views of their classmates. You can find out more about our school council on the designated page of our website.



September – British Values Day
The British Values of: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs were studied during a special British Values day in school. Each class studied these four principles through a range of interesting and fun cross curricular lessons and activities. You can learn about how we promote British Values at Barkston Ash by following this link: www.barkstonash.n-yorks.sch.uk/page.php?id=8028
