It is the right of all children to receive the best educational provision possible. No form of racism or racist behaviour is tolerated by Primary PPA Cover Ltd and should a racist incident occur action is taken immediately in line with our disciplinary procedure. We endeavour to make our clubs welcoming to all groups, regardless of their ethnic origin.

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a quick ‘Hello’ to share some of the beautiful Christmas themed work the children in our Primary schools have done during their Art PPA cover lessons and French or Spanish PPA cover lessons with our super Specialists!

I officially finish for the Christmas Holidays today and as much as I am excited about my lie in on Monday I’m sad that I won’t get to see all of the other photos we receive of the beautiful Christmas work happening in our schools next week!

To share with you just why our Specialists really are the best PPA cover Specialists in the world…have a browse through some of the photographs below from a variety of our Primary schools across the country!

 

 

 

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to all schools that entered our Company Christmas Card Competition – the competition was higher than ever and the elves here at Primary PPA Cover HQ really struggle to pick and overall winner! Congratulations to the super talented pupils at Hullavington Primary School and Caroline Hudson; their very lovely art PPA cover Specialist, of whom are the winners! The pupils created very intricate mosaic style depictions of the 12 Days of Christmas using snippets of coloured paper, card and other textured materials…I am sure you’ll agree that they have done a super job and we’re all very proud of them here at Primary PPA Cover HQ!

 

Get a load of Finlay’s winning Christmas card design for our sister Company, ClubsComplete! Finlay is from Griffydam Primary school and is just 5 years old…you would never have guessed with how professional his design is (check out that beard!!). Well done Finlay, you have done an expert job and we can’t wait for our other ClubsComplete schools to receive this in the post next week! www.clubscomplete.co.uk 

Right, I’m off to join my team for a Friday Afternoon Tea at one of our local restaurants…yet another reason why Primary PPA Cover is one of the best places to work…ever!

Merry Christmas everyone, make sure you eat lots of chocolates, give lots of presents but most of all chill out and have fun!

Wow! What a busy start to the term we’ve had!

One of my favourite things about working for Primary PPA Cover has to be the Autumn Term and how many new schools we welcome to the Primary PPA Family! This year has been no exception and we thoroughly look forward to supporting the team and pupils in each and every school we have the pleasure of working in.

This term has whizzed by so quickly that I can hardly believe I’m sitting her during the half term holiday having just sent our menu requests off for the Christmas party!! In all the excitement, I’m yet to share some of the fantastic work and progress our super Specialists and pupils have produced this term, so in celebration of European Languages Day I am pleased to share work from St Andrews South Gate Primary School in Enfield and Hullavington CofE Primary School in Gloucestershire!

Do you know why we learn French? Well done to the children at Hullavington!

Get a load of those eyelashes!! Excellent work from the children at St Andrews Southgate!

Muy bien! Super Spanish writing skills from the children at St Andrews Southgate!

Another success we have celebrated this term is that our Directors; Kerry and Stacey Barsby, have been shortlisted as finalists for the national NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards – how exciting! Both Kerry and Stacey had the pleasure of meeting all of the other entrants on 3rd October at the Awards Celebration Evening in Birmingham and they certainly had a brilliant time! Their hard work and determination is just one of the many reasons we have become England’s Best PPA Recruiter and why I am so proud to work for such a progressive and future forward Company. Muy bien Kerry and Stacey!

So, who loves cake? Thought so. We do too and even better we love teaching children how to bake and create the most delicious cakes and sweet treats through our Bake Off style clubs! If you’re fed up of ‘Soggy Bottoms’ or dream that your pupils will one day produce an ‘even bake’ Paul Hollywood would be proud of then have no fear, our sister Company ClubsComplete are here! This term enquires for our Bake Off Club have been hot out the oven and we are so pleased to inspire children on a National basis to taste, experiment and explore cooking and baking following a Bake Off Style format, whilst at the same time, supporting your current Food Provision to meet Ofsted’s standards as part of the new Common Inspection Framework. Piece of cake! www.clubscomplete.co.uk

The showstopper created by the Star Bakers from Long Whatton Primary School’s Bake Off Club! Yummy!

In celebration this term also were several of our super clever schools and children that made it on to the Championship Leader Board in the Vocab Express International competition! Every year, several of our schools that we support with MFL PPA cover enter the online competition and this year Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Coventry came 2nd in the world with a further two of our schools making it into the top 20! What an incredible achievement!! One of the many reasons we are so proud to be England’s best PPA Cover providers for Nurseries and Primary Schools!
