“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Llangrove CE Academy – Chosen Charity 2017/18

.toiletThis year’s charity will be ‘Toilet Twinning’ a fundraising initiative to support ‘Tearfund’s water and sanitation programme worldwide.

£60 will ‘twin’ a toilet with a toilet somewhere in the world; with the school receiving a certificate and GPS coordinates to hang with pride.

Last week the children voted to raise to twin their toilets with:

Girls Toilet: Democratic Republic of Congo

Boys Toilet: Côte d’Ivoire

Staff Toilet: Guatemala

Donations will be collected at coffee mornings after Parents’ Assembly by Year 6 pupils – and I know the Pupil Council have some excellent fundraising ideas for later in the year!
