Children In Need Green Screen!

Today we have been raising money for Children In Need; we dressed up in outfits that reflected our aspirations and donated money in doing so!

We really made our aspirations come true by taking some photos using our green screen.

Can you guess what careers we would like to have?

Creative Communities: Every Child Cares Project Celebration Events and Handbook Launch

This Tuesday, some pupils from Thomas Buxton Primary School were invited to the Professional Development Centre for a special launch party for the Creative Communities Handbook Launch (visit the School Office to get your hand on a handbook) attended by community leaders and workers.

This event celebrated our ‘Every Child Cares‘ project work alongside Whitechapel Mission, the Tower Hamlets Food Bank Centre and our local soup kitchen to feed and support community members in need of help. 

Pupils from Thomas Buxton Primary School and Smithy Street Primary School were part of a panel who were asked questions about their project work. They discussed how they led and developed their projects which engaged local communities using action research skills.

There was also a very special video which included our work and the work of local schools within the project. Click the link below to watch it too. 

Here are some pictures from last summer where the 2016-2017 School Ambassadors went to the Golden Hinde for a celebration event for their hard work in the project. They were presented with a certificate and some more funding towards the Every Child Cares project by Mayor John Biggs.



We, as a school community, have worked very hard, to make sure that all children’s rights locally, nationally and globally are being respected. We hope to continue this throughout 2017-2018 and want your help and ideas on how to do this!

Every child cares!

Thank you for your donations to the community cohesion project! We received  lots of food and toiletries from the whole school community. We will be taking the donations to our local homeless shelter on Monday the 3rd of April.

We made our very own special bags with inspirational messages to take the donations in.

We hope they like it.😄

Being funny for money😜

Well Done Thomas Buxton!! We have raised a lot of money with the help of your donations💷 We’ve had a lovely day!

We started of the day with a “being funny for money” assembly and dressed all in red.

We played lots of fun Red Nose Day games during our lunch break.

Penalty shoot out!⚽️

After school we had a lovely bake sale and sold lovely treats that the parents made

Sweet treats!!

The School Ambassadors were rewarded for their hard work and commitment this year with a trip to Kidzania – a mini city where children can participate in role-playing adventures. They can have different jobs, such as fire-fighter, mechanic or television presenter, or enroll in university or other enriching courses, like painting or animation school!

The day was a great chance for the children to think about what they would like to do when they are older and aspire to successful, rewarding jobs.

Here are some photos of our brilliant day out.

Geneva: video diary from our ambassador


As you probably know, we were recently represented in Geneva, Switzerland by our Rights Respecting Ambassador. Travelling with CRAE, we went to meet with the UN Comittee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) to deliver the special report CRAE have been working on.

While in Geneva, our ambassador was asked during a video diary to answer some questions…


If you would like to know more about the project, have a look at this clip:

Hi everyone,
Here is a message from our Rights Respecting Ambassador in Geneva:
‘We have arrived in Geneva for the CRAE’s project for RRSA.
We have met with the UN committee to discuss the rights of the child, making lots of suggestions.
We have had our voices heard on subjects like respect and discrimination, children in care and voting rights for children. We said that children should he more educated about politics and be heard more by government.
Our whole group had been working hard and has been very vocal about children’s rights and encouraging the UN to treat children equally and show us the respect we deserve.
The week so far has been amazing but very hard work! One of our members said “When we spoke to the committee, we felt very excited to be heard but also nervous. We had to answer lots of very difficult questions about our See It Sat It Change it report.”
We will be flying back to London very proud and very happy at our great effort. We hope that our recommendations will be acknowledged and that we can bring about a positive change.
Take a look at the CRAE’s blog site and twitter page to find out more!
We can’t wait for them to return and look forward to hearing more.
