We we’re extremely blessed this week to receive a lovely donation of footballs, hoops and skipping ropes!
These were donated to the school by Rob Sargent, CEO of Acorn and John Payne Estate Agents. Mr Sargent toured the school last week and was so impressed with the behaviour and character of the school that he very kindly donated the equipment!
This has put a huge smile on all the children’s faces!
We would like to once again, express our deepest thanks to Mr Sargent.
We were extremely grateful to Stanley Holder (OBE) for the donation of 70 bibles this week. Mr Holder was the great uncle of our very own Mr Chown and sadly passed away at the end of last year.
With funds raised through his estate and in accordance with his wishes funds were allocated for this generous gift and help our children in their journey of faith.
A huge thank you to the extended Chown family.
Choir support St Christopher’s Hospice!
Happy New Year to everyone from the Staff and Governors of St Saviour’s!
I just wanted to start the New Year by spreading the fantastic fundraising achievements of our fantastic choir in the run up to Christmas. Led by Mrs Robins the choir raised an amazing £1900! Well done!!!
Below is a copy of the thank you e-mail from Nicola at St Christopher’s Bromley –
Dear Mrs Robins
Thank you so much for bringing two choirs of pupils from your choir at St Saviour’s RC Primary school to sing once again for St Christopher’s Hospice at The Glades on Wednesday 13th and again on Friday 15th December.
I’m very pleased to let you know that the families of the children and the people shopping in the Glades were very generous once again. On the Wednesday we collected a fantastic £873.66 and in the two hours we were there on the Friday, a truly amazing £1,018.65 was raised for St Christopher’s Hospice. These are splendid amounts and I am so grateful to you and your pupils who sang and performed so beautifully and enthusiastically – they are a credit to you and the school.
I will post out two certificates out shortly recognising your achievements, which I hope you can display somewhere at the school. I hope you will come back to sing for us again next year. I will also to my best to ensure we get a good day booked in Lewisham.
With best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Challenge Partners Review
I hope you enjoy reading the Challenge Partners feedback from their three day visit in November. The report was carried out by 3 reviewers – a lead OFSTED inspector, a headteacher from Manchester and a headteacher from Wiltshire. The review was very comprehensive, every class teacher was observed and the senior management team interviewed for 4 hours over all our data and plans.
The school was scored in three areas and we were graded outstanding in 2 out of the 3 areas (Outcomes for Children and School Improvement Strategies)!
The report is extremely positive and a huge validation of all the staffs hard work over the last few years, I’m extremely proud of our wonderful team and children.

St Saviour’s School will hold a minutes silence tomorrow as we remember those who have given their lives for the freedoms we have today.
Many thanks to Mrs Dummett for doing such a beautiful display.
Choir at St Mary’s Festival 2017
Sunday saw our wonderful choir perform in the annual St Mary’s music festival. The children gave a wonderful performance in their own slot and at the end with all performers for the “Joseph” medley.
Many adults commented on the superb behaviour of our children during the event and the quality of the performance.
A huge thank you to Mrs Robins for giving up her time for such a worthwhile event for our children.
Summer Reading Challenge 2017
Every year Lewisham Library runs the Summer Reading Challenge.
Children have 6 weeks to read 6 books. After every 2 books they have read they visit the library, talk about the book to the librarian and receive a prize. When children have read all six books they get a medal.
This week Tim, our Lewisham Librarian, visited the school to present the 24 children who completed the challenge their certificates!
As a bonus, each child receiving a certificate also got 100 team points for their school team.
Next year I am raising the reward to 200 points! So get reading and support your local library!
Harvest Festival at St Saviour’s!
A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who contributed food for our Harvest Festival this Friday. What an incredible amount we have received!
The school kicked off Harvest Festival week with a CAFOD assembly on Tuesday and an assembly today where we gathered all the donations on the stage before giving to those less fortunate in the local community.
The week finished with an assembly where we thanked the children for their generosity. A big thank you to Father Tom for attending the assembly!
A huge thank you to Mrs Cunningham, our Class One teacher and RE Leader, for organising all the events this week!

St Saviour’s Book Day 2017
A huge thank you to the children and staff for a wonderful St Saviour’s Book Week last week. The poetry recital, book sale and dress as a book character day we all so much fun and fantastic to see the children showing their love of books.
A huge thank you to our English Leader, Miss Kelly, for arranging so a great fun filled week!
We had another amazing day at PGL- everyone had huge smiles on their faces all day long despite the wet weather! We took part in some great activities and some of the children were amazing and conquered their fears- completing challenges they didn’t think they would be able to. All of the teachers also had a great day and joined. Mr Chown made it to the top of the trapeze pole and Miss Tavernier and Ms Holme were crack shots in the archery.
What has been amazing to see today is all of our children working together and supporting each other. PGL staff members have also commented on how great our children and staff have been which makes us very proud of our school.
We arrived safely at Marchants Hill PGL at 12pm and were greeted by our PGL leaders. We had a picnic lunch and then put our bags away, no time to unpack yet! We then headed off for our first afternoon of activities. By 5:00 we had already had so much fun: Giant swing, air rifle and aeroball.
We were soon heading back to our rooms to unpack, settle in and get ready for dinner and capture the flag. Everyone had a great first day. Photos from day one below:

School Council Visit Mayor
In January members of the school council were lucky enough to visit the Town Hall and Lewisham’s Mayor, Sir Steve Bullock!
The children were made to feel very welcome and posed some superb, very extracting questions to Sir Steve Bullock. The children are a real credit to the school and their behaviour was superb.
Many thanks to Miss Tavernier, our Assistant Head and School Council Leader, for making the visit possible.
