At Bollin Primary School we believe that community links are essential in the growth, development and wellbeing of all our pupils. Links with our local community help us to build relationships with groups and individuals who will provide positive role models for our children whether within the world of work, spiritual and moral development or everyday experiences.
Examples of some community links we have.
- Trafford Integration Project – We are part of this local project that connects local care homes with a primary school. Our children visit Handsworth Care Home, in Bowdon, to take part in shared activities with the residents such as card games, wordsearches, reading poems and playing the piano. It is a very humbling experience for our children and a fantastic opportunity to develop intergenerational understanding.
- Local secondary schools- We are currently working with one of our local secondary school on a two-year Transition Project looking into further developing effective transition arrangements. This is a Trafford wide project involving over 45 Trafford schools.
- STEM Ambassadors – As part of our ambition to further promote and develop STEM opportunities, we welcome STEM ambassadors to share their experiences and lead STEM sessions with our children.
- Local Sports Clubs – We have strong links with many local sports clubs, working with us to offer a strong PE and sport curriculum offer, we also signpost and encourage our children to pursue sporting activity outside school through the local clubs.
