Please help our Trustee raise money for Quest!

The half marathon is quickly approaching for one of our Trustees, Peter Whiteley.

He is running a half marathon on 17th March, to raise money for Quest. This is his second half marathon, so please support him!

Quote from Peter:

“I’m running this half marathon to raise money for the Quest School. I’m a trustee there and have seen at first hand the amazing work the staff do and the difference they make for the pupils. So please help me raise some funds to support their work.”

Pupils at the school typically have significant needs, and hence require a very individualised teaching approach as well as specialised equipment and resources.

Many pupils with autism also have a Sensory Processing disorder, which means they struggle to interpret the information gained through their senses (sight, sounds, touch, and movement). High quality sensory equipment can support a child’s ability to successfully engage with learning.

The school is currently raising funds to purchase sensory equipment, like the image shown below:  http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/PeterWhiteley5

Learning about Famous Battles

In music, all of our pupils are learning about famous Battles.  Today, some of them have been learning about The battle of Hastings by acting out marching to battle.  They have played the parts of King Harold and his soldiers marching along to battle music whilst playing the drum.

                              

 

 

Online Safety at Quest

We consider the online safety of our pupils as high importance.  E-Safety is embedded into the curriculum, with all staff receiving regular training.

If you would like to find out more about keeping your child safe online, please visit our E-Safety tab on our main website (under information for parents) for training slides along with a “Click CEOP” button.  The Click CEOP button will take you straight to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection website for further information on how to report any concerns.

 

Healthy Eating Theme Day

Our term ended on Friday with Healthy Eating Theme Day.  The pupils participated in various activities to give them greater understanding of what it means to eat healthily, including the benefits that healthy eating gives them.  They also had the opportunity to taste a wide variety of healthy food. We hope that everyone has an enjoyable half term!
