Minnie Vinnies

Meet our Mini Vinnies

Our Mini Vinnies are a group of children following in the footsteps of St. Vincent de Paul. They lead our school in fighting social injustice and tackling poverty. They lead our pupil voice and form part of our RRSA steering group.  

 "Turning Concern into Action"

The Mini Vinnies meet regularly to discuss how we can improve our environment, engage with the local community and ensure all the children at English Martyrs' school are aware of their rights and how the duty bearers (adults) can uphold these rights. 



Celebrating our Gold Award!

Current project - 2020/21 UNICEF OutRight Campaign


In joining the UNICEF OutRight Campaign, we are turning our concerns into action by battling to protect our precious Earth from the dangers of climate change, for years to come.

Our hope is that we can get as many people as possible to view our video and sign our e-petition so that we can be the beacons of hope and the reason for change in the way that we, as a society, live our life. 

So, please support us. Sign our e-petition and help us reach our mission.

We are Eco Warriors!

We know that it is our duty to look after our planet and everyone who lives on it therefore we work hard to keep our community clean and tidy.

We have regular groups of children who go out and clean up the pavements and roads around our school and English Martyrs' Church. We also try to keep our local doctor's surgery grounds free from litter.

The Mini Vinnies have been taking suggestions on what equipment the pupils would like in their playgrounds. They had lots of ideas and they then made a shortlist for Mrs Harper. Mrs Harper held a meeting with the Mini Vinnies to discuss how we can improve our playgrounds for the pupils of English Martyrs'. We can't wait to see the finished project!
