Convention on the Rights of the Child:Article 29 of the UNCRC underlines our vision as a school:Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents, and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and other cultures. It should also help them to learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.

Our Visit to ‘The Royal Albert Hall’
52 pupils and adults from Severnbanks School went to The Royal Albert Hall in London to watch the Primary Proms concert. It was absolutely amazing; a fantastic experience for all pupils and adults.
The London Primary Prom concerts provide children aged 4-11 with the opportunity to experience live music making in one of the world’s most famous concert halls.
Presenting dynamic, vibrant and eclectic performances by talented young musicians, these concerts aim to inspire and motivate the next generation of music-makers.
The highlight of the concert was taking part in the Massed Ensemble piece singing ‘World in Union’; part of Gustav Holst ‘The Planets’ from the middle section of Jupiter; along with the orchestra, choirs and audience at the Albert Hall.
