  • Vote for a Blue Plaque for Sir James Black 31 August 2017 Judith Kerr Primary School

    Sir James Black, who lived in Herne Hill, was a Nobel Prize winner whose work saved thousands of lives. For a time, he carried out his research in the building that is now Judith Kerr Primary School.

    Sir James is one of seven nominees for this year’s edition of the Southwark Blue Plaques scheme, run by the Southwark News in association with Southwark Heritage Association, Southwark Council. He was nominated by the Friends of Judith Kerr Primary School.

    The scheme has commemorated the great and good of our borough by awarding Blue Plaques to over 50 recipients since it began in 2013. It would be wonderful to celebrate a great scientist and a piece of our school building’s history with an official and visible recognition.

    For more information, click here. To cast your vote before the September 15 deadline, email owen@southwarknews.co.uk stating “I would like to vote for Sir James Black for this year’s Southwark Blue Plaque scheme“.

    Please link this item to as many people as you can. The nomination receiving the most votes wins!

    As ever, thanks to Maria Athini for facilitating and John Athymaritis for the layout and design, and for making this club such a success over the last year.

  • JPKS Sports Kit launched 5 July 2017 Peter Johnson

    Unveiling the new sports kitWe’re delighted to have taken delivery of our new school sports kit. Earlier this year, we invited pupils to design a kit to represent Judith Kerr Primary School. We received many very creative entries, many picking up themes from our patron author’s work. In the end, the design submitted by Jonathan Hoffman was realised by Krusada Teamwear and unveiled at a school assembly last week. Based on the school’s blue colour, and naming the team “JKPS Tigers”, the new strip is a smart addition to the school’s identity.

    Our Year 5 team gave JKPS Tigers their first outing in Peckham Rye Park on Tuesday.

    Judith Kerr Primary School is grateful to the Kindergarten Forest Hill, which most generously sponsored the production of our new kit.

  • Election Special 9 June 2017 Judith Kerr Primary School

    The country needs leadership, and it’s here, at JKPS

    Candidates for PM

    After the general election, as the UK ponders the shape of its next government, we can be sure the future will be brighter should any of the Judith Kerr Primary School children choose a career in politics. In today’s assembly, we held an election special during which children from Year 2 to Year 5 argued why they would make a great prime minister. Massive congratulations to the following children for delivering their speeches in front of the school:

    Year 2 Sufiyan
    Year 3 Zarah E, Elena, Aalia, Oskar, Simi, Raynon, Nathan, Joshua, Amelie, Simi
    Year 4 Lotta, Maya, John, Clara
    Year 5 Jeta, Emil, Theo

    Their priorities for making our country a fairer and happier place included: introducing more renewable energy; better funding for the education, health, police and fire services; reversing Brexit; promoting science; introducing a 4-day week in schools; more free school meals; reducing the voting age; opening libraries; and…. allowing fidgets in class!
