We’re delighted to see that the schools in our Trust recently hosted their own celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Children and their families were invited to take part in the individual events and had a thoroughly royal time!

Tynsel Parkes C.E. Primary in Uttoxeter has been busy celebrating the Platinum Jubilee and decorated the school in traditional British bunting. The children were invited to wear red, white and blue clothes, and throughout the week they enjoyed taking part in many royal activities.

Celebrating the historic occasion, children at Tynsel Parkes made their own Jubilee themed biscuits, thrones and carriages fit for a Queen. They also designed royal pavilions and cushions to hold the royal crown. The nursery children even got a surprise visit from ‘Her Majesty the Queen’ and her Corgi!

Littleton Green Community School in Cannock invited their pupils’ families to school during the week of the Platinum Jubilee for a royal celebration of their own. Staff were dressed in 1950s outfits and the children enjoyed coming to school in non-uniform.

They also took part in crown, bunting and decoration making and finished the week with an energetic street party, with six hundred people coming together to rejoice the Jubilee!

The Cannock Parish Council presented prizes for the best bunting, which was followed by lots of dancing, refreshments and more festivities in the afternoon. The school’s summer fayre concluded with a bouncy castle for the children to enjoy, music and plenty of sweet treats all around.

St Edward’s Academy Cheddleton also hosted celebrations on Wednesday 1st June, where the whole school relished a Jubilee-themed street party to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne. Pupils wore clothing inspired by the colours of the British flag and were invited to a party lunch with home-made Jubilee cupcakes!

Each year group from the school sang a song from the last seven decades, including hits from musical legends such as Elvis Presley, The Beetles, Oasis and even ‘Let it Go’ from the movie Frozen. The whole school serenaded guests with the new Jubilee anthem, which was followed by Chairman Harold Jennings and Vice-Chair, Lisa Salt from Cheddleton Parish Council presenting all children with a Platinum Jubilee mug and coin. Everyone had an incredibly joyful day making lots of special memories that they will cherish.

Across the Trust, each of our Academies offered plenty of fantastic celebratory opportunities for pupils, parents and staff to enjoy. We’ve shared just a small selection of events that took place; all activities truly reflect the strong community values that our Academies share.
