  • Online Safety Evening 2018

    Published 04/01/18
    Online Safety Evening - Wednesday 17th January 2018

    The Piggott School is committed to online safety. We are always working hard to ensure that students have a consistent experience of online safety education. We aim to ensure that all students from Year 7 to Year 13 receive embedded opportunities within the curriculum and pastoral tutor time to learn how to stay safe online. New technologies bring exciting learning opportunities, but careful management and education is needed to ensure that everyone is safe in our digital world.

    We will be holding an information evening to update parents in this ever changing world of online safety. I am pleased to offer an opportunity for all parents/carers of The Piggott School students to attend on Wednesday 17th January 2018. The event will be in the Library from 6:00-7.00pm.

    Although some of the messages about online safety do not change, we feel the need to highlight everything that will be most relevant to protect your children online. If you would like to attend please email reception@piggottschool.org to book a place.

  • Thank you

    Published 05/12/17

    Thank you to all the parents who responded to the online ParentView survey this week; 96% of our parents would recommend the school.

    The OfSTED judgements are confidential until the report is published, which is expected to be early January.

    Each and every member of staff were, as always, amazing during the inspection. The children’s behaviour, and especially their appetite for learning, was excellent.

    Many thanks for your continuing support.

  • China Trip 2017

    Published 28/11/17

    An incredibly long flight and a 7 hour time difference did not phase the nineteen Piggott students who were all set for a new adventure! They arrived in Chengdu to a warm welcome from the staff of Luzhou High School.

    After a short rest, the activities began. From visiting forests, temples and farms, to attending calligraphy and Chinese taiji classes, the visit was action packed from beginning to end. In addition to the wide variety of activities that took place at Luzhou High School, and the exciting day trip experiences, the Piggott staff and students enjoyed spending time with some of the families from the school.

    The group even managed to squeeze in a visit to the Giant Panda Research Base, in Chengdu, before their return flight!

    Students and staff really made the most of this wonderful opportunity and they truly experienced, at first hand, Chinese culture, education and lifestyle. Many memories were created and they will no doubt be treasured for years to come. 

    Everyone is looking forward to the return visit from the Chinese students and staff next summer.

    Until then, students can enjoy finding out more about the adventure during one of Mr Crawley’s upcoming assemblies!
