Governor Awards

Well done to the children who were nominated for our first Governor Awards. There are 6 awards that go to children who the governors feel have demonstrated the 6 Christian Values of our school over the half term. The nominations were considered by a committee of governors and were anonymous so that choices could be made in as open and fair a process as possible.

Our winners were:

Thankfulness Award– Tony Huang in Year 5

Justice Award– Joseph Barratt in Reception

Hope Award– Isaac Edgington in Year 3

Compassion Award– Chloe Parker in Year 4

Endurance Award– Lucas Jackson in Year 2

Forgiveness Award– Owen Lockwood In Year 6

We had a special assembly where 4 of our governors presented the awards to the winners. All the children who had been nominated were also announced and their achievement acknowledged with the whole school.

The Governors Award display is in the main entrance to school where you will be able to see the photographs of the award winners with the governors.


The awards will be presented at the end of every half term so our next awards will take place just before our Christmas holiday.


Friends of Canon Popham Update

Thanks to the small group of people who met yesterday to plan the Christmas Fair. This will take place on Friday November 30th from 3:30 until 5:00 all help is gratefully received.


You will notice that the climbing Frame in KS1 playground is being taken down. The replacement has been ordered and we hope it will be erected by the end of November ( weather permitting). Thanks to all who have donated in any way.


We hope that the children enjoyed our non– uniform day today. The £166 raised will be contributed to the climbing frame costs.


Thanks to all those who sponsored Mrs Barratt’s 5K run. This raised £450 to date.  If you have sponsored Mrs Barratt and still need to bring in your money please can you do so as soon as possible. Money can be handed to the office staff.


Enjoy half term everyone! We look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Monday 5th November.
