Pinfold Primary School is very much a community school, taking part in as many community events as possible, even instigating some.
We use the village resources for sporting events, school fayres, Christmas plays, also the Millennium wood and local churches. We also have strong links with the following Universities: John Moores, Edge Hill, UCLAN and University of Liverpool to enhance the pupils learning and experiences.
We embrace a connection with the local environment as well as the community, to support this we have a member of staff who is pro active with local events and is our community cohesion Governor.
As part of our artsmark gold award for art, craft & design, dance, drama, music and arts awards, we have also been awarded a artsmark gold special achievement award for excellence in parental and community involvement in art and culture from the Arts Council of England bridge organization Curious Minds.
Sue Fielding and Dr. Meriel Jones share how the Bonkers Bugs team used the outdoors as a cross-curricular community learning environment in a recent edition of the Primary Science Journal. You can read the article here.
