We are very proud of our long standing links with the local community. We work well together with the local Church, St Matthews, with regular visits from Jonathan Mobey, Sarah Barrett and Pam Rolls to take part in various events and to lead assemblies.
Many of our children attend our local PreSchool , Little Pippins, who visit the school for various activities, especially swimming. Our Foundation Class teachers liaise with them about children who will be joining us.
We are very pleased to be one of a group of schools in Oxfordshire who are part of Full Circle. This groundbreaking inter generational work is recognised as being the foremost project in the country and we are delighted to see our older volunteers having lunch and then working with a small group of children every week.
We are pleased that we often see Tim Deane, our local PCSO in school, with the children getting to know him as another member of the community they can safely turn to if they have a problem out of school. Tim produces the local Neighbourhood Policing Update which you can access here Neighbourhood Policing Newsletter For Wantage Area
|On Monday (14/9), new measures will be put in place to help suppress the spread of coronavirus.
These new measures mean that people in England can only meet in groups of no more than six, indoors and outdoors.
Those that choose to congregate in larger groups will be dispersed and could be fined or even arrested.
Thames Valley Police officers will continue to work with our communities and will follow our approach to engage with, explain and encourage people to follow the new regulations.
Assistant Chief Constable Christian Bunt said: “Preventing the spread of coronavirus is a shared effort and we at Thames Valley Police will play our part.
“The new rules coming into place on Monday are very clear and we hope that all members of the public follow them.
“Our officers will be in the community engaging, explaining and encouraging people to follow the regulations. We will disperse groups of more than six people and will issue fines to those who refuse to comply.
“However, there are a range of enforcement options at our disposal, and this does not always involve fines being issued.
“Members of the public can expect to see officers out on patrol but we ask that everyone takes personal responsibility so police involvement is a last resort.”
