Councillor Phil Bateman MBE, Chair of Governors of The Federated Ashmore Park Nursery and The Phoenix Nursery Schools Governing body said-
“Last night at the Governing Body – we discussed the latest information relating to our work with the European Union ‘Erasmus project’ , and our ground breaking work with other schools from Sweden, the UK and the next phase of the project working in partnership with schools from Spain and Romania!
The Governors were delighted with this element of the Headteacher Sue Lacey’s Report.
Mrs Lacey reported that both she and the Deputy Headteacher attended the Erasmus project Senior Leadership meeting in Romania, she gave the Governing Body a full report and she informed the meeting that “we will be welcoming these international colleagues as part of our new research project to our Schools in May 2018.”
The Governors were delighted to hear this news, and also some more exciting news in the fact that the School are also hosting a visit from a group of Japanese professors from Tokyo University at the end of March 2018.
They are very interested in the work that was conducted as part of the digital media research project and we will shall be sharing our research with them. There will also be the opportunity for them to observe practice within the Nursery.”
This is excellent news for the school, as we continue to build an excellent international reputation for the work we do in education Early Years children. I know we are very proud of all our staff that are involved in this outstanding work, and I hope the City Council will also be very proud that this little corner of the City – has such a growing international reputation.
The Phoenix School recently welcomed, Wolverhampton South East’s Mr Pat McFadden MP, to their school site where Mr McFadden was briefed on the international links.
Emma Reynolds MP for Wolverhampton North East will be visiting the school at Ashmore Park later this week , where she will also be updated on the good news.
