Our song and motto
The forest of the south
Our trees are tall and stout.
We always try our best
To help and serve the rest.
Dallington, Dallington, Dallington
We do our best to make gatherings fun and happy occasions with all the children able to contribute in some way.
Gaining leaf points is encouraged in all aspects of everyday School life, not only in academic attainment but in showing attributes such as kindness, helpfulness and friendliness.
Our banner relates to the forest with badgers, hedgehogs and squirrels featuring.
Our Year 6 members are given the responsibility of caring for the younger children and keeping the swap book up-to-date.
When fund-raising, we try to choose a charity that is personal in some way to the Dallington children. So far we have supported Riding for the Disabled, Maggie's and The Milestone School.
We discuss local customs and have had a visit from Morris dancers and attempted maypole dancing. We take note of special events and celebrations and try to incorporate these into our meetings, such as The Queen's 90th birthday, the Olympics, Paralympics and Remembrance Sunday.
Often we then make collages of various kinds to depict these events which are often displayed around School.
In our meetings we do our best to acknowledge any awards the children have been presented with.
