A team of Key Stage 2 pupils (known as ‘Egg Heads’) run a small enterprise project, looking after our hens and selling eggs to parents, staff and members of the local community. The hens have a large, permanent enclosure generously funded by a community grant from Bristol Airport. They also have a a 20m extension run full of trees and shrubs which is an ideal environment to promote their natural behaviour to scratch and explore for food. They are only let into the extension run when school is open as it is not fox-proof!
Pupils from Years 3 to 6 join the ‘Welfare Team’ and the ‘Egg Sales’ teams. Their rota of duties is organised by Egg Head Team Leaders. Eggs are sold by the pupils weekly after school on a Friday - please support us
As part of our School Values theme on Social Responsibility we have re-homed 6 ex-battery hens to join our flock. They arrived during a very cold spell and one in particulary was struggling with the temperature of her new outside home – so Mrs Newton knitted her a jumper!
