Comic Relief Day 2021

SSPS took part in Comic Relief day this year with a non school uniform and mad hair day!

On Friday 19th March students and staff came to school in clothes of their choice and crazy hairstyles to raise much needed funds for people in the UK and across the world through the annual Red Nose Day held by Comic Relief.

Here are some pictures of our crazy haired staff…



Mobile Testing Unit is up and running

Our new mobile Covid testing unit is up and running ready to test students and staff.

Our Team Triple T (Terrific Testing Team!) are trained and kitted out with appropriate PPE in preparation for carrying out routine testing as directed by the government.

We are really proud of how quickly we have put together our testing unit which will visit all of our school sites to carry out the routine tests.

We can beat this together!


Ice Cream Van Visit

A big thank you to Noodles Ices for visiting all our school sites this week.  Staff and students were very grateful for the delicious ice creams to end the term with a smile!


Christmas Jumper Day 2020

Staff and students kicked off the Christmas season at SSPS on Friday 11th December by supporting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Everyone was invited to come to school in their Christmas jumpers …. and we did not disappoint!  The prize for the most festive effort goes to Mr. Coombes who took the Christmas jumper to a whole new level with his Christmas Suit!




December Outdoor Ed

Our Middle Years students have been making the most of the crisp December weather this week by doing an Outdoor Ed lesson at Durdle Door in Dorset.

They played games on the beach outrunning the waves and collecting interesting looking stones, cuttle fish and seaweed to paint later in class.  The children showed resilience climbing up the steep hill back to the carpark as well as curiosity in engaging with the different types of rock and materials, such as clay on the beach.


!        What a view!                                                                  That hill was steep!!
