I am pleased to include in this week's newsletter the main diary dates for the Summer Term. As you can see, that even though we are heading towards the end of the school year, we are still extremely busy in the Early Years and Primary School. Great to see the range of activities and experiences we have planned. Thank you teachers!

A few key dates not included yet as we are still busy planning these events are: Year 6 Transition Meeting, Summer Fair, Sports Day and the Year 6 School Sleepover. 

Lastly, but certainly by no means least, it was wonderful to welcome back our teachers who have finally completed their visas in the UK. A challenge for us all but one we have overcome together. Lovely to have the Primary 'family' complete. Stability, calm and great learning is our path going forward into our final term of this year. 

Wishing you all a great Easter holiday! 

Best wishes and a hug

Miss Wakelin

SEND Workshop for Primary Teachers

Last Monday, March 28th, teachers of the primary school and early years had a workshop on SEND (Special educational needs and disabilities) strategies. We talked about the most common difficulties that students show at school and how to best help students through lesson planning. These sessions of professional training provide excellent opportunities to expand knowledge and awareness of individual needs in the classroom and how to support these on a daily basis.
