Our community cohesion program is intended to be in the areas of health and well-being, charity work, education and employment opportunities, community partnerships, and culture or leisure activities. 

 

We have lots of great ideas, but would be really interested in hearing from you to see what you think our community needs and how Coundon Court could get involved.

Ironman Triathlon – Mr Connor 

I will be completing an Ironman Triathlon which consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and 26.2 mile run.  It starts at 7am and must be completed by 12am (midnight).  

It was originally taking part in Cork, Ireland.  However, the event has been recently cancelled so I’ve decided to complete my own Ironman swimming at Bosworth Waterpark and cycling and running around Coventry and Warwickshire.  I plan on completing the Ironman on the same day as originally planned - Saturday 14th August 2021. 

Training for this Ironman has taken a huge amount of grit and dedication.  Training in the cold, dark and winter months was certainly a challenge but not as tough as what I faced over the last few weeks as my training volume increased.  To fit the training in around family, friends and school means regularly getting up at 4:30am to work-out (during the week and weekend).  However, with only a few weeks left to go I am determined to complete the Ironman, spurred on by the challenge and by the funds we can raise towards a defibrillator for the community.

Year 7 Fitness Challenge – Wednesday 14th July 

Since April Year 7 students have attended a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) class during Thursday lunchtime, with Mr Connor.  They work-out for 10 minutes, enjoying a range of activities which make them fitter, stronger and happier.   

Year 7 have set themselves the challenge of completing 1 hour of HIIT over the school day on Wednesday, 14th July 2021.  They will complete a 10 minute HIIT class every hour during the school day. 

They are usually pretty tired after a 10 minute session so this will be a big challenge but they are looking forward to pushing themselves and raising some money for the Coundon Court Community Defibrillator.

Coundon Court School would like to raise money to purchase a defibrillator, along with a lockable external cabinet, to mount in the heart of the Coundon community, for the use of the public should they need it.

 

When a person goes into cardiac arrest, their heart stops beating, oxygen is not being transported to the brain and other vital organs, and within four to five minutes, brain damage will start to occur without intervention. A victim’s chance of survival falls by around 7 to 10 percent with every minute that defibrillation is delayed. It stops beating normally as the electrical activity in their heart becomes uncoordinated. A defibrillator sends out an electrical shock, to stop the electricity with the aim to get it to restart in a normal rhythm.

 

By having a defibrillator in your community and by training people in CPR, you can play an important part in saving more lives. A community Public Access Defibrillators is a defibrillator that is available to members of the public, 24 hours a day, to use in the case of a life-threatening emergency.

 

There are only three defibrillators that are accessible to the public in Coventry 24/7 they are in the following locations: Bond Street, The Council House, Earl Street and Hillfields Church, Lower Ford Street.

We have a "JustGiving" page to which donations for this can be sent:

We ran a "Hero Hamper Drive" prior to Easter, to recognise and reward our local heroes. The hamper contents were donated by students and staff at Coundon. 

We asked for nominations from people within the Coundon area, via posters in local businesses, social media, our own website/ twitter feed and through tutor time in school. 

Once the nominations came in we shared them with Coundon Court students and staff to vote on. 

 

The votes are now in... come rain or shine, Max the lollypop Lady is seen every day on Hollyfast Road. She greets everyone with a friendly smile and keeps us all safe. 

 

Congratulations Max, so many of the Coundon Court school community were so happy the winner was you.  

We hope you enjoyed your goodies! 

Year 9 pupil Anya Dewitt has raised £235.55 for Macy Handley a 12-year-old schoolgirl in need of life changing surgery, not covered by the NHS, after being diagnosed with a rare condition. 

 

Anya organised this all by herself and along with some friends has visited fellow pupils in tutor time selling raffle tickets for prizes including 3 x £25 McDonald's vouchers and two goodie hampers.

 

Well done Anya on your tremendous effort and valuable contribution to Macy's cause.

Updates from Year 7

Ella

"I have demonstrated resilience by doing the online schooling. At the beginning I wasn't too sure and was struggling but now I am as lot better at it. "

Thanks Ella - well done for your hard work and keep it going!

Morgan

I have demonstrated that I am happy and caring because me and my mum have made a cream tea for my nan and grandad because they only live across the street. Me and my mum have been making scones and sandwiches and cream tea things for them for a nice treat. We stay 6ft apart though so don't worry. We made finger sandwiches, strawberries, scones (with clotted cream and jam) and sandwiches with brie and cranberry, egg mayo and tuna and cucumber all made by hand or freshly picked from the garden.

These look greate Morgan, your Nan and Granddad must have been delighted!

The SEND team are working hard to support students both in school and out. There is additional support out for SEND students and families through some fantastic opportunities with SENDIASS. Please see these links for more details.

Our fabulous Art Team got stuck in, along with our students and produced 20 crisp packet blankets that were delivered to Coventry Comfort Carers crisis support project and Langar aid for distribution just before Christmas.

The Crisp Packet Project

Serving the community, saving the environment!

‘The crisp packet project’ making sleeping bags, blankets, bags and ground sheets for the homeless.

Our community really came together on this project.

LC Y7.jpg

Not only did our own students and staff collect crisp packets but some of our feeder primary schools did too! Hollyfast, Hill Farm, Kersley Grange and Kersley Newland did an incredible job getting behind the project and donated sacks upon sacks full of crisp packet for the cause.

Food Bank

You may have seen an article in the Coventry Evening Telegraph regarding how we are supporting our local community with our School Foodbank. The article is outlined below:

“Mrs Elton, Safeguarding Lead at Coundon Court School told Coventry Live: "We have had bags of food anonymously left in my office, teachers keep saying what do you need this week, I'm doing a Tesco shop."

 

A local charity, Langar Aid, have also helped the school with their free school meals offering, providing thirty additional food hampers every two weeks for families. They also do the voucher and hamper system for families on free school meals.”

 

Please do get in touch if you or a family in our community needs our support. All correspondence will be treated with confidentiality.
