Meet our extended family...
Jump Primary School is very proud of its extended links with the local community:
Chickadees - Last year we were lucky enough to nurture some chickadees for twenty one days. Our adopted family now live a beautiful life on a farm in Holmfirth.
Mr and Mrs Sykes - Mr and Mrs Sykes are very important members of the community and link us with the Chapel. They regularly take assemblies in school and have invited us to perform our Christmas Carol Concerts at the chapel. We really enjoy listening to their stories and singing songs with them.
PCSO Hamer - Our friendly local policeman! PCSO Hamer is a friendly face in the community. He runs question and answer sessions with each class and has been working hard with school council. We are currently trying to encourage people to park further away from the school gates to keep outside school nice and safe.
Doug Pope - Our "Tour de Jump" cycling trainer! Children in year five are encouraged to ride their bikes safely, both in and out of school
JRSOs - With the help of Laura Cornell, our Year 5 Junior Road Safety Officers meet on a regular basis and are working really hard to improve Road Safety in our community. They run assemblies, arrange Walk to School events and regularly update their notice board with posters, letters and pictures.
Fiona- our School Nurse who works alongside both teachers, children and parents.
Sue - our smiling Dental Nurse. She talks to each class about the best ways to keep our teeth clean. Look out for her puppet dinosaur which helps her!
Barnsley Football Club - We are lucky that members of the club are joining us over playtimes and have created some really exciting games to keep us fit and healthy.
We are also developing some positive links with both national and global dimensions:
Meet our sponsored children:
Foromo Kpoghomou - Foromo is our sponsored child from Guinea. He is in good health and thanks us very much for choosing him to sponsor. He says "kapalouwou" to everyone, which means welcome!
Pawankumar Sangamlal - Pawankumar is our sponsored child from India. His mother has written us a beautiful letter, as he is still too young to write. Everyone is well at the moment and they are looking forward to our reply.
