Please find details below of Family fun sessions being run in the Summer holiday They are events for families with children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or disability and for the whole family including siblings. The sessions are a good opportunity to meet other people and have some fun in a calm and relaxed environment. We are not able to take responsibility for individual children but there are members of the family support team and volunteers on hand to help with activities. Parents remain responsible for children/young people at all times and must stay with them.
For the first time this year we combined Sports Day with our Summer Fair, hosting a BBQ over lunchtime for our pupils, staff and parent/carers. The weather held and the event was really well supported!

I would like to draw your attention to a good practice study that we have just had published on the Ofsted website. I have been working with Sue Morris-King (HMI) and our fantastic pupils to try and capture the school’s journey over the last couple of years through the pupil’s eyes.
The case study focuses on the voice our pupils had in school through this time of change for us all. You can access it directly from here.
I hope you all enjoy reading the case study. I’d like to thank you all for the part you play in encouraging and supporting your child so that they then feel confident to seize the opportunities on offer to them at school.
