Celebrating Emmbrook Infants School's dual success
March 26, 2010
Proud pupils at a Wokingham school showed there is nothing sketchy about their work when a councillor paid a visit last week.
Councillor Rob Stanton, executive member for children’s services at Wokingham Borough Council, dropped by Emmbrook Infants School on Monday last week to congratulate the establishment on its recent achievements.
Earlier this year the school in Emmbrook Road received both the National Association for Able Children (NACE) challenge award and Information Communication Technology (ICT) mark from Becta.
The school’s success was achieved following its efforts to challenge and encourage pupils to achieve their best and for developing a strategic use of ICT.
During his visit Cllr Stanton took the time to individually visit each classroom, where he spoke with pupils, before being shown the artwork of Olivia Mansfield.
The six-year-old recently drew a sketch of the school, which was considered so impressive by staff it was subsequently framed and mounted on the wall.
Emma Clarke, headteacher, said: “At Emmbrook Infant School we celebrate all of our children’s talents.
“Olivia Mansfield drew such a fantastic sketch of our school that we had it framed. Olivia proudly showed her artwork to Cllr Rob Stanton when he came to visit our school.”
