Pupils at St Saviour’s Schools in Bath have been given the chance to enjoy their birthday parties with their friends and still stay within the Covid guidelines.

Running throughout December and set to continue for as long as COVID restrictions are in place, each class will hold a party once a term to celebrate the birthday of all of its pupils whose big day falls within that part of the school year. Each class will be given a budget, which is being supported by the school’s PTA, to plan the parties, which will include music and party games.

“Birthdays are so special for the children as they grow up, with the chance to celebrate the special day with their friends.” said Joe Beament, Executive Headteacher at St Saviour’s Infant Church School and St Saviour’s Junior Church School. “I know how disappointing is has been for children who have missed out on seeing their friends on their birthday, so it’s great that we are in the lucky position to do something about it! This means that every child at St Saviour’s will have a birthday party this year – it will exciting, it will be fun and it will hopefully be a party they will never forget!”

Joe explained that the parties will take place in the afternoon of the class’s special day, with the children allowed to wear non-uniform clothes. All of the party games will be supplied by the school, meaning that nothing will have to be brought in from home.

“We can’t wait to celebrate birthdays with the children this year,” added Joe. “It’s party time!”
