The local community is very much part of our everyday life at school and we have a strong relationship with the local CHQ Parish that includes Hatherop, Coln St. Aldwyns and Quenington. We use the church building throughout the year for services at Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter, Ascension and at the end of year Leavers’ Service as well as for curriculum activities. Members of the congregation volunteer at the school in many ways, including as governors, as part of the ‘Open the Book’ team, listening to children read and accompanying us on school trips.
Hatherop pupils raise money and collect items for a range of charities. In recent years they have raised money for:
Jeel Al Amal
Send a Cow
Children in Need
Cirencester Food Bank
The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal
We are very fortunate to have various members of the community who give their time to help with school activities. Parents, neighbours and local villagers come to school regularly to hear children read and accompanying them on school visits.
Quenington Sculpture Show
The school visits the Fresh Air Sculpture Show which takes place every other year in the neighbouring village of Quenington. The whole school walks across the fields to touch, feel, draw and discuss the exhibits. The PTA provide refreshments on key days during the two-week programme, helping to raise further funds for school projects.
The school offers its facilities during the summer holidays to the CHEQS Summer Programme. This is a voluntary-run programme of activities for children of primary school age from the five villages in the local area. The programme have benefited from the use of the school buildings, gardens and play area, and borrowed sports equipment during the holiday period.
The Ernest Cook Trust
This land-based educational charity is right on our doorstep and the school regularly benefits from its educational programme aimed at raising awareness of the countryside and the environment. The children love their regular visits to the ‘Forest School’ and local woodland, and greatly benefit from this outdoor learning.
Open the Book
Most Tuesdays, the children enjoy themed and dramatised Bible stories as part of the daily Collective Worship. A team of local volunteer storytellers from the CHEQS benefice use drama, mime, props, costume, and the children themselves, to present Bible stories in ways that they are lively, engaging, informative, and great fun for everyone involved!
