Visit from Local MP

On Friday 10th March, we were lucky enough to be visited by Patrick McLoughlin, our local Member of Parliament and Rob Lynes, Regional Director of The British Council. The aim of their visit was to see how we achieved the International School Award, awarded to Parwich Primary School for the International activities completed between September 2015 and July 2016. The award lasts until July 2019, where every three years it will be reviewed. They had a tour around school, watched an assembly, presented by our pupils, all about the International activities they took part in and a chance to chat to the children about their experiences throughout working towards the International Schools Award and how we are continuing our International Journey with new events, topics and friends in other countries. Both visitors were impressed with our achievements and particularly commented on how well our pupils spoke in their assembly.

Shrovetide, Lent & Pancake Activity Afternoon

Aboriginal Art Afternoon

Continuing on our ‘International Journey’, the whole school has taken part in an Australian Afternoon. Inspired by a recent link we have formed with Karratha Primary School in West Australia, Miss Pendrigh led an Arboriginal art

activity. Fun was had by all, as they created Aboriginal ‘Dreamings’ paintings; derived from Dreamtime Stories about how the world began.

Infant Nativity 2016

On Tuesday 13th December 2016 Infant Class proudly presented…

‘Born in a Barn’

There was a good deal of commotion in a Bethlehem stable, when the animals realised that there was a baby in the barn!

Cow, Sheep, Mouse, Dog, Owl, Cat and Cockerel all leart about the special baby that arrived with Donkey.

As more and more visitors arrived to greet the new king, the animals slowly realised what a privilege it was to share their home with such an important baby.

International School Award Success


Parwich Primary School has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.


The International School Award is a badge of honor for schools that do outstanding work in international education, such as through links with partner schools overseas. Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens. Parwich Primary School’s International School Award has been awarded for the international work completed between September 2015 and July 2016 and the work they plan to do in the future. The School’s international activities included whole school topics from around the world; Sri Lanka, Africa and Rio. The Rio topic celebrated this year’s Olympics and the school held their very own Rio Carnival and Sports Week. Other activities and topics the pupils took part in related to global issues and ways of life; staff and pupils marked Fairtrade Fortnight with many lessons and trips that educated and brought awareness of Fairtrade to the classroom and the Parwich community joined them for a Big Fairtrade Breakfast. Islam was studied and pupils were given the opportunity to visit a Mosque and the Queen’s 90th birthday was celebrated with a day of activities and a ‘Royal Afternoon Tea Party’ for the community. The pupils regularly watch Newsround and take part in discussions surrounding local and global issues and events, enabling them to become more connected to what is happening in their world. One of the criteria of the International Award is to take part in three language-based activities in collaboration with a partner school. The pupils at Parwich Primary School have enjoyed a relationship with a school in France for many years and have recently written letters, created presentations of their school and performed short plays, all in French. Their partner school has then reciprocated and all pupils have benefitted from these activities. John Rolfe, from the British Council, said: ‘The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award. The International School Award is a great chance for schools to demonstrate the important work they’re doing to bring the world into their classrooms. Adding an international dimension to children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful future careers in an increasingly global economy.’ The award is now available worldwide in countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Lebanon, Cyprus and Pakistan as part of the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms programme. Around 5,000 International School Awards have been presented to successful schools in the UK since the scheme began in 1999. The International School Award encourages and supports schools to develop:

  • An international ethos embedded throughout the school
  • A curriculum that ensures the majority of pupils within the school are impacted by and involved in international work
  • Collaborative curriculum-based work with a number of partner schools
  • Curriculum-based work across a range of subjects
  • Year-round international activity
  • Involvement of the wider community

On hearing the news that Parwich had received the award, Mrs F. Tomblin, Headteacher, stated: ‘We are all absolutely thrilled with the award. It’s well-deserved recognition for all of the outstanding work completed by pupils and staff. Mrs L. Jones, our KS2 teacher and International Co-ordinator, who has recently attended the award ceremony in London, enthused the whole school community throughout the year. The planning and preparation behind each and every activity was key; this ensured inspirational, hands on experiences were organised for all our pupils. We feel the opportunities our international work has provided will help our pupils develop as active, global citizens and we are excited about continuing on our international journey with many plans for the future.’


We Achieved Gold!


After an in-depth moderation by the School Sport’s Partnership, we are extremely pleased to announce that Parwich Primary School has been awarded the School Games Gold Award.

This award recognises the school’s outstanding commitment to sport and the vast opportunities that the school provides for every one of its pupils.

The award had emphasis placed on particular criteria: having an active Sports Committee, links with local sports clubs, showcasing our sporting achievements to parents and the community through the school newsletters and website, supporting all pupils to achieve their sporting potential and providing them with a variety of extra-curricular sports clubs.

We are very proud of this award and would like to thank all pupils, staff and parents that have continued to support sport at Parwich Primary School.

Sports Day 2016

Tuesday 19th July

We think it was the hottest day of the year so far, but we didn’t let it stop us! All the children tried extremely hard in each of their races. Thank you to everyone who supported our Sports Day this year and an extra special thank you to those who supplied gazebos to protect the children from the sun, helped transport equipment to and from the field, keep the grass mown and tidy at the Cricket Pitch all year round and to our PTA who provided drinks, biscuits and ice creams for the children. A great day enjoyed by all!

To celebrate National Sports Week and with Rio Olympics 2016 in mind, Parwich Primary School held a jam-packed week of fun sporting activities aimed to give our pupils opportunities to try out sports they wouldn’t usually do at school and to hopefully encourage a lifelong participation in sport. The children took part in Horse Riding, Cycling, Archery, Golf, Climbing, Sailing, Orienteering, Table Tennis, Tennis, Rounders, Volleyball, Athletics, Basketball and Water Polo. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the week!

Royal Tea Party

Monday 6th June 2016

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our ‘Royal Tea Party’. We really enjoyed celebrating The Queen’s 90th Birthday with friends and family.

The children dressed in red, white and blue to commemorate the occasion. In the morning, the children completed tasks related to The Queen and The Commonwealth and in the afternoon, refreshments were enjoyed by all, along with a performance from the children.

We are extremely pleased to announce that we have raised £112 which will be split between our School Council and the charity ‘CHICKS’, a national children’s charity that provides free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK, which is also on our doorstep.

Well done to all the children, parents and staff who took part in the Derby 3K Fun Run at the IPro Stadium on Sunday 17th April. We took part to raise money for three charities: British Heart Foundation, The Isabella Peatfield Fund and Parwich Primary School.

Supporting our British Farmers

MoS2 Template Master

During Fairtrade Fortnight, the children learnt all about where certain products they eat come from, how they are produced and how the Fairtrade Foundation can improve working conditions and support for farmers in other countries. We decided it was important to educate our pupils on matters closer to home and about the importance of supporting British Farmers. We would like to thank Mr. Lomas and Mr. Hotchin for giving up their time to come and to talk to the children about why it’s important to ‘Buy British’ and how they can help.

Open Centre & Mosque Visit

Tuesday 15th March 2016

On Tuesday, the whole school visited Derby Open Centre and Mosque to learn more about the Islam faith. The children enjoyed activities, including cooking and a traditional marriage ceremony. When visiting the Mosque, our pupils were very well behaved; answering and asking interesting, thoughtful questions. This linked nicely with the KS2 Islam topic taking place in school at the moment.

What makes Ashbourne a Fairtrade Town?


We had a visit from two volunteers from the Ashbourne Fairtrade Initiative. They spent the afternoon explaining how Ashbourne became a Fairtrade Town and the children got to play games linked to the shops, cafes, etc. that sell or serve Fairtrade products in our local town. They also discussed with the children the difference Fairtrade has made to the producers and how raising awareness is so important.

World Book Day 2016

Thursday 3rd March



For World Book day this year, we visited Ashbourne Library. A Children’s Librarian showed us how to use the Library and delivered some short activities which then led to the children loaning their own choice of book. Lots of our pupils used this opportunity to register with Ashbourne Library, if they weren’t already members.

Young Voices Concert – January 2016

The School Choir attended the Young Voices Concert at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on Wednesday 20th January. The choir have been practicing the songs since September and thoroughly enjoyed the event.  It was a long day for the children, who did not get back to school until nearly 11pm, but as always the behaviour was exceptional. A great event which was enjoyed by all!

Friday 13th November 2015 – Children in Need

Inspired by BBC 1’s Countryfile, Parwich Primary School participated in ‘A Ramble for Children in Need’ today. Pupils, aged 4 – 11 years old, and staff from the school donned their raincoats and walking boots or wellies to walk a planned route around Parwich village.

Prior to the event, the pupils have been eagerly collecting sponsorships and overall the school of only 44 children (29 families) managed to raise the amazing amount of £519.99 for Children in Need 2015.

Well done to all who took part and a huge thank you to the family and friends who supported the children in this event.

Wednesday 11th November 2015 – Remembrance Assembly

This term the children have been learning about Remembrance. They have discussed why we remember and the different consequences war has had on people’s lives. The children were extremely sensitive to the issues discussed and wrote some very thoughtful poems related to the topic.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Remembrance Assembly today. We are very proud of how respectful the children were during the assembly and how well they presented their poems, artwork and thoughts about Remembrance.
