Ashcombe Primary School in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset is now running a What Does Love Look Like?’ REAL project for its pupils and their families.
Families have been sending in amazing examples of love, compassion and kindness in the community during the coronavirus crisis. The school will then have them put into a publication.
One story was of pupils Maisie and Lilly helping deliver Food Bank parcels with their mum and dad, and there are dozens of others rolling in.
The school has been rolling out a programme of bringing learning to life by helping the homeless and by making rounded children ready to take on the world. This latest project shows the remarkable feats that families and pupils are doing.
Ashcombe was one of the schools listed in the Real Schools Guide 2020 of the best schools around.
It follows from last year when they were in the top 5% bracket for combined reading, writing and maths results, compared with similar schools nationally.
Headteacher John Clark said: “The pupils and their families have been amazingly inspirational during this coronavirus crisis. This project is demonstrating just what a kind and compassionate community we are.”
