The diversity of languages spoken around the world was celebrated at Weavers Academy on Thursday 26 September. Students were given the challenge of learning how to say ‘Hello’ in as many different languages as they could and could be heard greeting staff and each other in and out of lessons saying ‘bonjour’, ‘Cześć’, ‘Guten Tag’,’Hola’, and many more. In the canteen at lunchtime, students enjoyed a European themed menu and Year 7 and 8 students completed activities in their language lessons aimed at increasing their awareness of different languages.

Weavers Academy has been selected to be part of the exciting 'Patron of Reading' scheme. This scheme was set up with award winning, well-known publishers and authors who'd like to improve reading in schools. Reading is an essential skill and one that allows the development of core literacy as well as enabling students to imagine and create. Weavers academy is passionate about the importance of reading and developing independent readers throughout the academy.


A Patron of Reading is a school's special, designated children's author with whom the school forms a personal attachment. The author might be a writer of fiction, a writer of non-fiction, a poet, a storyteller or an illustrator. They will work with the school to raise the profile of reading for pleasure with pupils, parents and staff.


Our patron is John Townsend. He is Reading Champion’ awarded by the National Literacy Trust.  John Townsend will be in school in October working with our students and will also run workshops throughout the year.


Here is a link to his website for you to investigate his books. http://www.johntownsend.co.uk/news.php

Team FullStop. won the County Schools Challenge competition 2013 with the campaign 'Accept me for who I am'. This campaign was led by the Sophie Lancaster foundation which was created by Sophie's mum (the lady in the picture) after Sophie was beaten to death a few years ago because of the way she looked. This is what they have to say:

We are team “Full Stop.”, we are a campaign group- named ‘Accept Me For Who I Am’- driven to reduce hate crime, we know there hasn’t been a full stop to hate crime so far so we want to be the ones to put it there. We feel hate crime is not taken seriously enough and it needs to be ended. We are very passionate about this subject as we have all experienced the hardships of bullying, in some form


Our idea is ab “anti-hate crime week”- from Monday to Friday- for schools which will involve completing one learning objective from our booklets each morning. We have designed the content of these booklets ourselves, it teaches the children about hate crime and bullying and who they could go to if they are experiencing either. Also, on the back page we have a blank rectangle- that’s for the children to put a sticker in once they have completed the week.


Team FullStop.

Doing our bit for charity!  Can you help?

Weavers School is collecting items for a Shoe Box Appeal.  We are looking for items that will fit into a shoebox, for example – new toys, toiletries, books, stationery, sports equipment etc. (primary age)

We are supporting the Northampton Saints player Soane Tonga’uhia’s Testimonial Year; part of his charity fundraising is his Shoebox Appeal.  On a recent visit back to his home in Tonga, Soane was saddened by the state of the Primary School in his home village of Vaini, the children did not even have the basics to help them learn.  Following this he has appealed to the Northampton community to fill shoeboxes which will be sent to Primary Schools in Tonga.

If you would like to donate any of the items listed above please bring them into school and take them to the Student Office, it will be much appreciated.

More information can be found at www.tinytestimonial.com under Vaini Primary School.

The organisers had this to say about our students:

“We just wanted to write to thank all of the pupils who performed at the above event.
