Construction Works Start On New Block at Rawmarsh Community School

Construction Works Start On New Block at Rawmarsh Community School

Just before the May half term, Hawker Construction Ltd started construction works on a brand new block at Rawmarsh Community School.

The decision for the new block comes after an increase in student numbers over the past four years. Rawmarsh Community School is close to reaching its student admission limit and has increased Published Admission Numbers (PAN) this year to accommodate more Year 6s, which has led the school to needing more space.

The building will house up to 10 new classrooms for the students when they return or start in September 2021.

Mr Turton, Headteacher at Rawmarsh Community School said: “The popularity of the school continues to rise and as such we have been asked by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to take additional students from September 2021. This speaks volumes about the school’s improvement since becoming a part of Wickersley Partnership Trust and is a direct result of the hard work, commitment and dedication of all the staff at Rawmarsh Community School. It is a truly exciting time for our community.”

Ashwood's Jack Scott Publishes a Book!

Ashwood's Jack Scott Publishes a Book!

Year 3 student at Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School, Jack Scott, has published his very own book, ‘Connor’!

During the trials and tribulations of lockdown boredom, Jack took to his diary to entertain himself and wrote about a talking dog who was his best friend. After reading snippets of the story to his mum, she encouraged Jack to type it up and make a storybook out of it to read to his siblings and grandparents.

Little by little, the story grew and Jack was eager to continue to make something that he could call his own. A few readers and listeners later, he was advised to turn it into a book to be published.

Once Jack chose the front cover and how his writing was set in the book, he published it on Amazon!

Laura Farmer, Jack’s Teacher at Ashwood Primary School said: “Jack has always had a passion for reading, and enjoys getting lost in a book. We are so proud of him and what he has achieved. His classmates and teachers have all bought the book and we can’t wait to read it.”

Well done, Jack – we are all proud of you!


Equality Month Competition!

Equality Month Competition!

This academic year at Wickersley Partnership Trust, we have been exploring the theme of ‘Equality’. All of the schools in the Trust are focusing on equality in June and students will be learning about a number of different issues and themes in lessons and assemblies.

We would like our students to take part in a cross-Trust competition by creating something on the theme of ‘Together, Unique’. The criteria is quite broad so be creative – it could be a piece of art, drama, baking, photography, poetry or a story!

What springs to mind when you hear ‘Together, Unique’?

Students can do this individually, as a group or as a class.

All entries need to be submitted to by the 25th June 2021. Please include your name, year group and school.

Good luck!
