Denby Free Primary Someone I Loved

A video for Lewis Capaldi

If you saw Lewis Capaldi’s performance at Glastonbury, you were lucky enough to witness one of the most beautiful examples of acceptance, inclusion and compassion. Lewis struggled to perform his songs and the crowd sang for him in collective support. What happened on that day was the result of at least some of the crowd having the right knowledge and feeling the right emotions. They showed empathy, compassion and kindness.

As a school we have spent the week focusing on the value of 'compassion' and how we can look after our own mental health and empathise with others. We have been singing 'Someone I Loved' as a school and learning the Makaton and wanted to share this with you and hopefully Lewis will get to see that we care.

Mellow Meadow

Our new sensory room, Mellow Meadow has been officially opened. We are so pleased with our new space and it has been in use for a few weeks now with some very positive feedback from both the children and adults. We were able to make this wonderful space because of the kindness of our parents and local business woman Dawn Flanagan who generously donated £500 towards it's refurbishment and also donated two tablets for use in there. It was also only possible due too the help and kindness of the Gregory family who donated the projector and did some of the hands on work, Miss Phipps who helped paint the room, the Neighbour and Knifton families for the bubble tube donations and Hallam and Whittle Co for some of the carpeting. Mellow Meadows will now offer all of our children a calming space to take some time out when needed. Many thanks to everyone who has made this dream possible and made a positive difference to our children.
