Restart a Heart


On Wednesday 13th December, the children had the opportunity to learn about resuscitation and when you might need to use it.  A volunteer from the NHS   South Central Ambulance Charity came in with resus dummies and a training defibrillator to demonstrate how to perform cardiac massage on someone and they then had time to practice.

Lit in Colour 

Recommended book list of books by authors of colour


Penguin Books and Lit in Colour state that:


Books create belonging. They help us see each other and understand one another. They shine a light on the world.

It’s vital that the books we read in our formative years reflect the rich diversity of the society we live in.


Here at St. Margaret Clitherow, we have a diverse school community - 55.7% of our school children are from a minority ethnic background.  We therefore think it is important that children have access to books that reflect who they are.  Attached is a list of recommended reads put together by Penguin Books.  You can read the research behind the inclusion of books by authors of colour here:https://
