All Ready for Remembrance
We have decorated our gates as a mark of our respect for Remembrance and have been selling poppies for the Royal British Legion.
What is Remembrance?
Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life.
We unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth. We will remember them.
- We remember the sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth.
- We pay tribute to the special contribution of families and of the emergency services.
- We acknowledge innocent civilians who have lost their lives in conflict and acts of terrorism.
Remembrance does not glorify war and its symbol, the red poppy, is a sign of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
Wearing a poppy is never compulsory but is greatly appreciated by those who it is intended to support.
When and how you choose to wear a poppy is a reflection of your individual experiences and personal memories.
Remembrance unites people of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds but it is also deeply personal.
It could mean wearing a poppy in November, before Remembrance Sunday. It could mean joining with others in your community on a commemorative anniversary. Or it could mean taking a moment on your own to pause and reflect.
Everyone is free to remember in their own way, or to choose not to remember at all.
Remembrance at PPS
We are remembering with assemblies to today and on Friday and will hold a 2 minute silence at 11am on Thursday.
Some of our children and staff will be taking part in parades on Sunday.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the veteran community and their families for their service and sacrifice.
