In his final official act in office the Mayor of Appleby, Stan Rooke, was delighted to visit our school to present a number of our pupils with citizenship awards for their work in supporting their peers in school.
Mr Rooke visited Emma's Building, our strategic resourced provision, as part of an Open Day event and was impressed to learn about the "Buddies". This amazing group of children have committed their break and lunchtimes this year to play with and support learners with additional learning needs and physical and medical needs. When he visited the school, Mr Rooke was so impressed by the inclusive ethos of the school and the attitudes of our children that he asked if he could present the pupils with awards in recognition of their outstanding citizenship.
During an assembly in front of the whole school and invited parents, Mr Rooke presented specially produced certificates alongside Mrs Barker our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator.
