Family Groups

Every child at Pearson is a member of a family group.  Our family groups are made up of a member of staff (teaching and non- teaching) and at least one child from every year group starting with the F2 children.  We join our family group when we start at Pearson Primary and stay in the same group until we leave, whenever that may be.

We meet once a week and this enables us to develop strong relationships with all members of the group and gives us a sense of belonging.  The older members of the group enjoy taking responsibility for the younger children.  Each week we share what we have been doing at home and our plans for the week ahead.  We reflect on our choices and other issues that arise and are important to us week by week.

Within our groups we are able to develop socially, morally, spiritually and culturally.  It gives us the opportunity to talk about how we keep ourselves and others safe, and we use this time to have a voice and share our views.

Throughout the year each group will take part in an event together this could be in school or in the local area, Mrs Overton’s group recently attended an event at the library to celebrate World Book Day.

Pearson Primary School has gone above and beyond the realms of every day teaching and learning in this challenging year. Thank you to the wonderful staff for all they do, both seen and unseen. Our child is happy, inspired, challenged, supported and making progress - what more could we ask for?

I would like to express my gratitude to the extent the school supports the festival of Eid Ul Adha. Not only by allowing the children a day to celebrate with their families but also by celebrating these events in the school as well.

I have had a lovely afternoon hearing the Year 1 children read so thank you. I was so impressed with the calmness and maturity of the children.

I have full faith in Mrs Clarkson and her wonderful team. They have bent over backwards over the past year to make sure my daughter has an education and I know they will continue to do so. They are amazing and I am so great full for their support for my child throughout the lockdowns. They have exceeded my expectations as they always go the extra mile.
