'Bourne Abbey is a happy, vibrant and very successful school where children learn in an extremely positive, nurturing and high quality environment.' Ofsted 2010

 As a Church School we not only encourage our pupils to strive for excellence in the core subjects, but to broaden their education, to embrace and develop the concepts of faith and spirituality, of hope and charity and to enable them to make more informed decisions later in life as broad-minded and knowledgeable British and world citizens.

    Anti-Bullying Workshop - ‘Hope’

    Year 5 and 6 from Bourne Abbey and Bourne Elsea Park were lucky enough to participate in an interactive anti- bullying workshop called ‘Hope.’ After watching brilliant performance which focused on three characters within a bullying scenario, the pupils took part in a discussion and workshop on the issues raised. They considered the story from each character’s point of view which helped to explain why the character behaved as they did. All pupils then decided how they wanted the story to end. Mrs Goold PSHE lead commented: ‘The workshop was absolutely amazing! It showed the different circumstances around bullying and also what may be going on in the life of the bully that could affect the way they behave.’

    We are constantly amazed by the generosity of our parents, carers and friends when we have our charity events and this year’s Children in Need appeal was no exception. Friday 16th November saw us once again humbled by the support and enthusiasm shown by our children and their families; in what was a record-breaking year for the charity, we achieved a record of our own by raising over £2000!

    The Student Council voted to have a pyjama day and raised money from donations as well as collecting sponsorship to run their ‘Abbey Mile’ in their nightwear. Year 3 made and sold scrummy cupcakes and there were Pudsey wristbands for sale too. Head of School Mrs Buttress said; “The children have all had a great day. With our Christian Value being friendship and fellowship this term, I feel the children have really embraced the opportunity to show friendship and fellowship to those less fortunate than ourselves in their efforts today.”

    Charity fundraising is one of the Student Council’s favourite things to do. We are truly grateful to our Bourne Abbey families for their continued support in helping us to raise this amazing total.
