The Redstart Primary School delighted by generous football donation

The Redstart Primary School were absolutely delighted when their PE Development Assistant, Jon Smith, approached his football club, Forton Rangers and their sponsors, EcoElectrix, and asked for sponsorship money to purchase some new footballs for pupils at Redstart.

Forton Rangers and EcoElectrix both very kindly agreed and awarded the school a sum of money.  This pot of money was added to by Jon's own organisation, Rebel's Runners, and the school was able to buy 30 new footballs.  These new footballs will be enjoyed by all the pupils at Redstart during their PE lessons and will help them to develop their ball skills, whilst improving their fitness, health and well-being.

Jon Smith said "It's so important that the children are keeping active during lockdown whilst so many clubs are forced to close".

Both The Redstart Primary School and The Redstart Leaning Partnership would like to thank Forton Rangers, EcoElectrix and Rebel’s Runners for their kind donations and who knows we could be training the next Kelly Smith MBE or Jack Grealish, watch this space!


The Redstart Primary School is part of The Redstart Learning Partnership:

A message from Suzanne Flack (Executive Principal) and Rebecca Collins (Head of School) Posted on: 24/01/2020

A message from Suzanne Flack (Executive Principal) and Rebecca Collins (Head of School)

It’s been great to see so many of you at our class assemblies over the last few weeks. This is such a great opportunity for our pupils to perform and share their work and it’s a lovely way for us to all start the day. We are very excited to be hosting the Holland Park Opera who will be performing The Pirates of Penzance in our school hall in March. This is part of a tour which starts in London and finishes down in Penzance. Lots of our KS2 children will take part in workshops as well as watching a live operatic performance. It promises to be an amazing event and we look forward to sharing the photos with you. As always we ask you to be considerate when parking near the school. We want all of our children to be safe as they leave the site and our neighbours need access to their properties at all times. The local PCSO and traffic warden will be spending much more time around our site to ensure that everyone is abiding by the rules. We also request that you switch off your engine as soon as you have parked. All the research shows the negative impact idling engines on the quality of air which means that it is another risk for our students and obviously not good for the environment. If everyone could switch off their engines this would dramatically improve the air quality around our site and would be hugely beneficial for everyone. We hope that you are able to support us with this vital initiative. Our annual stargazing event will be happening on February 13th. This is always such a popular and interesting evening and a key event in our school diary. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a dry and clear night.Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
