Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you to all those parents who were able to spare some time to complete the Parent Questionnaire sent out last week. We had a really positive response; it was great to find out parental views about different aspects of school life and learn more about what you feel makes our school special and what we can improve on. We will share a summary of feedback with you once it has been analysed and action points considered. 

Thank You!

Autism Awareness Assemblies

Mrs Stackhouse (SENDco) has done another assembly this week about Autism for children in Y1 &Y2 . This was a general discussion, not talking about specific children.

She has been sharing the following messages:

For pupils to understand:

  • everyone is different and that different is good.
  • you can’t see if someone is autistic. It is an invisible condition. Autism means that someone’s brain works a little differently.
  • how they can be a supportive friend/classmate.

We have been looking at the cbeebies programme Pablo - there is useful article on the BBC webpage about talking to your child about Autism.  You can access it here
