Our Get Wright Campaign Children in Years 5 and 6 have been using the influence of Twitter, alongside their powers of persuasion, in a bid to convince retired Arsenal and England striker, Ian Wright to come and visit them at Wembley Primary School. Although not all of the children are Arsenal supporters, they all share a common interest in Ian Wright as a sporting legend, someone who has had to exercise discipline (often against adversity), and accomplished great success. Children came up with the idea of using Twitter to communicate with Ian Wright directly. Influenced by the number 8, which Ian Wright was famed for wearing, the children have been coming up with 8 different ways to convince the star to come into the school to inspire them. The 'Get Wright Campaign' has even picked up interest from Politicians and local newspapers including The Brent and Kilburn Times. We're keeping our fingers crossed that he will make the WRIGHT choice and visit us at school someday soon!

In order to ensure that our families are able to enter and leave the school safely we continue to ask that in the morning, families enter the school through the school gates. In the case of heavy rain we will open the main doors to reception. A notice will be placed outside the school to inform parents of when the main doors may be used. In addition we ask that families do not use the pavement outside our service yard to park or turn their car in, this is dangerous for our families walking to school and local residents. There will be traffic wardens on duty some mornings and they will issue tickets to cars parked illegally.

The children had lots of fun helping to care for the centre’s animals. We are very proud of the way they represented Wembley Primary School with impeccable behaviour.
