This week, Paradigm Trust celebrated pupils who have been awarded all three values awards and have become the first values champions in the Trust. Paradigm shares the same core values throughout all of its schools:
- Integrity – doing the right thing even when no one is watching.
- Excellence – enabling everyone to achieve more through education.
- Community – working together; learning from, and supporting, others.
Each week, pupils are nominated for positive behaviours that link to a value and each half term winners are chosen to receive a values award. Once a pupil has received an award for all three values s/he receives a values award. This week, 12 pupils from Culloden Primary Academy, 5 from Murrayfield Primary Academy and 4 from Piper’s Vale Primary Academy were recognised for receiving all three values awards and becoming values champions. Here are a few examples:
- Integrity – for always doing the right thing and being a role model for the rest of the class
- Community – for being kind and helpful to all and offering to help out around the classroom
- Excellence – for completing work to the highest standards and responding to feedback given.
Pupils were presented with a certificate and values champion badge by Bill Holledge, CEO, Paradigm Trust and enjoyed a festive afternoon tea with their families.
Six Year 5 Girls from Culloden Primary Academy attended a leadership course with the aspiration to become leaders and role models to other girls in promoting physical activity. There is a stereotype in education that girls become less physically active than boys during their school lives. Our Year 5 girls set out to prove this is not the case!
Year 1 pupils from Culloden Primary Academy were lucky enough to visit Lee Valley Park, where they learnt about a variety of different animals and birds.
Year 6 pupils across our Primaries have been sitting their SATs tests. We are very proud of all their hard work.
Here are Y6 pupils from Piper’s Vale enjoying a well earned visit to the park after their tests finished.
Spring has sprung, and our pupils have been waiting for chicks and ducklings to hatch, after carefully looking after their eggs.

Humayun Rob in Y5 at Culloden Primary spent last weekend racing at Basildon Sporting Village for Hackney Aquatics Club. He swam 10 races and achieved 7 medals; 2 Gold, 3 Silver & 2 Bronze. He’s qualified for 3 races for Middlesex County competition in January 2019. We wish him every success in the future.
Year 1 pupils from Culloden Primary Academy recently had the opportunity to visit Countryside Live and saw a sheep show.
They also went on a hunt for mini-beasts and, despite the rain, thoroughly enjoyed their time out of the city.
