An exciting new video is launched today (30 September), which aims to capture the unique essence of Yattendon Church of England Primary School. The two-minute programme throws open the gates of the pretty rural school and offers a snapshot of learning across everything from phonics to Religious Education and computing to maths. It also covers some of the many enrichment opportunities at the dynamic little school. 

A cameraman followed pupils for a day, from classroom to playground, and from sports field to the school’s outdoor classroom in the local woods. The brief was to bring to life the school’s strapline: Launching pupils into a bright future – inspired and independent.  

“We particularly wanted to capture the warm, nurturing feel that so many of our families appreciate,” says Headteacher Rachel Manley. “It’s a small school where pupils of all ages interact and learn from each other. But we pride ourselves on offering big opportunities – from external sporting activities, to public speaking. The video aims to give a taste of our ethos, and encourages parents of potential pupils to come and take a first-hand look.”

The video is being launched to parents today at one of the school’s regular Celebration Assemblies. A link is also being sent to individuals and organisations within the local community,  encouraging them  to share with their own networks.
