Anson is a multi-cultural school described by OFSTED as a 'village school in the United Nations of Brent' - we are naturally very proud of the mix of religions, ethnicities and need that makes our community. Below are some examples of how our school values are shared by the whole school.
The whole school community came together to raise awareness of the number of plastic bottles filling up the oceans of the world. You can watch our film below.
The children do a lot of charity work each year. This image is the collection of food and household materials donated to the Brent Food Bank this year.
The School Council is elected democratically in a first past the post system. There are two children represented in each class from Reception to Year 6.
Our front entrance is always being updated. For example it has been a place to celebrate Chinese New Year, Diwali, Easter or Armistice Day. At each event every child creates something for the front of school display.
We celebrate good behaviour at the school by giving the children a chance to choose a prize if they have remained 'on gold' for the term. The assemblies are a way to show our appreciation for their hard work and focus in school.
We also share our work globally with other educators. The children have a voice and we want to give them the platform to share their ideas. This video is one of our most successful films and promotes a safe approach to a life online.
We celebrated the Queen's Jubilee, which came at the same time as Anson's Jubilee. Both the Queen and Anson began their roles in 1952.
