To celebrate Pancake Day yesterday (25th February), the canteen were serving up delicious pancakes with ice cream and healthy fruit as a treat. These went down really well!...
Though it may have been Pancake Day, pupils were still defeating the veg as carrot and coriander soup was also being served. This turned out to be a great hit too! Thumb's up all round!

Celebrating Windrush Day-
22nd June 2020
Today, 22nd June 2020 marks the second annual Windrush Day, which was established in 2018 as a way to commemorate the arrival of The Empire Windrush, the first ship that brought people from the Caribbean to the UK.
As a school, we have been and will continue to address the issues of inequality. We will do this by continuing to develop our curriculum, engaging with parents, educating our own staff team and inspiring pupils themselves to challenge, question and stamp out inequality wherever they find it.
Letters including activities have been emailed/posted on Showbie.
Happy Windrush Day!

Visit From An Ex Pupil
Byron Court were very excited to invite Karl Melaimi--an ex pupil of Byron Court--to talk to our children about the importance of resilience in the face of failure. He also underlined the benefits of making the most of your time, and teachers, while at school. Karl then went on to explain how his hard work has led him to University where he is currently studying computer science and has been doing some exciting work with Google as part of the BlackgooglerNetwork. After talking to the children, Karl had a tour of the school, met his old teachers and we spoke about maintaining links at the school to help our children achieve in the future.

New Scientist Live Trip-
Thursday 10th October 2019
"We had the opportunity to attend New Scientist Live at the Excel London for the second year and it was an amazing experience. We visited the moon and even had an opportunity to smell it (which we would not recommend) and we were lucky to watch a talk by the astronaut Tim Peake about life in space and the future of space travel. Alongside, we met a few NHS surgeons who talked us through the future of surgeries and we tried some of their instruments. We hopefully now have future doctors in the making! It was a brilliant day out!" - Miss Bakdoud
Harvest Festival Display- October 2019
After school on the 25th of September 240 adults and children of Byron Court enjoyed a wide range of exciting maths and science activities run by the members of staff. Those who attended enjoyed various activities, including maths games, maths art, making catapults, naming the newly discovered planet, a water obstacle course, ICT games, how to clean water, engineering challenges, match the animals footprints and making rocket men. We even had a visit from Jo, one of the Northwick Park Community Garden trustees, who helped us plant mini-gardens in compostable pots. It was amazing to see so many enjoying the STEM activities and wonderful to soak up the exciting atmosphere. Thank you to all of those who attended and for the positive feedback. We can't wait for the next STEM Parent Workshop!
