PUPILS have released balloons containing their wishes and dreams to mark a new dawn for their school.
Beacon View Primary Academy, formerly known as Paulsgrove Primary School, became an academy in January.
It held a special pledge day for its pupils and staff to celebrate its change to academy status. Representatives of the pupils, staff, parents, governors and sponsor United Learning each signed a pledge in which they committed to support the school to achieve its aims.
Headteacher Andrew Olive said: ‘Today is about celebrating what is already great at Beacon View and recognising our huge potential for reaching even greater heights.’
