The community is at the heart of Robert Shaw. We have an active Parent Teacher Association who organise a variety of fundraising events, from discos to sports nights and the Summer Fair.
We are a creative school and produce a variety of performances, which the school and local community are invited to. We like to get out into the community and perform, too!
We welcome the community into school, and many of our parents help in various voluntary capacities. We also encourage friends of the school to share their skills and talents, and if you have something to offer we would love to hear from you. As we seek to encourage open communication, feedback and discussion, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you feel the need.
Robert Shaw in the Community
We have close links with the Salvation Army, who collect a group of children at the end of the school day. Parents then collect from the Salvation Army based on Aspley Lane. This is an arrangement between the parents and the Salvation Army.
School has an active role to play within our community and regularly take part in community clean up events.
Our younger children have close links with Willows facility, and enjoy visiting and singing to the local community who attend this facility.
Our children work hard to raise money for charity, recently this has included shoe boxes for refugees, NSPCC maths day events and Children in Need.
The school has a field located on Southfield Road, this is open daily for the use of the local community, in order for them to have a recreational space.
