The school also received a 'Special Achievement Award' during the summer holidays fromDistington in Bloom’ for recognition of our successful school garden. We would like to thank our gardeners who regularly come into school (and during the school holidays) to work alongside the children. We have had an amazing crop this year of sweetcorn, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, peas, rhubarb and much more which the School Council have sold to raise funds which will go directly to benefit the children.


School Car Park Protest

After concerns raised by our children the School Council organised a safe parking protest. On Friday 5th February our School Council held a protest in our school car park. The aim was to raise awareness of safe parking in order to ensure the safety of ALL our children at Distington Community School. The School Council shared information with parents about how to keep children safe. A big thank you to the majority of parents who supported their protest this morning and parked safely. The children would appreciate your continued support regarding safer parking.
