Art and Sports Day

Thank you to all of  the pupils’ families who attended our Art and Sports day today.  The pupils participated brilliantly in all the races and did Quest proud! Their art work looked beautiful!

 

Wood Work Day!

Yesterday, all of our pupils participated in a wood work day run by Skills for Employment.  They brought a bus that had all the tools that the pupils needed to make a bug house.  The pupils enjoyed measuring the wood, sawing it and then drilling in the screws to hold it all together!

 

Staff Training

Today is an INSET day at Quest.  The staff have received further training on data analysis and ethical conduct.  Our Speech and Language Therapist also delivered training sessions on augmentative communication systems.

Weekly trampoline lessons

Throughout the academic year, the pupils attend a regular offsite trampoline lesson at our local leisure centre.  This provides a chance for our pupils to generalise their listening skills with less familiar adults as these sessions are taught by an external instructor.  The sessions increase their gross motor skills by learning new techniques on the trampoline.

 

BCBA Supervision

Some of our current staff cohort have completed their Masters in ABA and are receiving individual and group supervision from our BCBAs (Board Certified Behaviour Analyst).  This will enable them to complete enough supervision hours to gain the BCBA qualification themselves.   Our qualified RBTs (Registered Behaviour Technician) also continue their supervision in these sessions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coastal Theme Day

The pupils are having a great day learning all about the seaside.  They have been taught about the importance of recycling and keeping the environment tidy.  There has been lots of craft involving making a beach in a jar, a sunset picture and a mermaid or jelly fish.  The pupils have also played various beach games such as beach volley ball and Limbo in the play ground!

 

Mental Health Awareness Week.

This week is Mental health Awareness week.  We take the mental heath and well being of our staff seriously.  All of our staff recently attended a mental health awareness workshop which was provided by our employee assistance program provider; Health Assured.

 

Fifteen Year Anniversary.

Quest School celebrated its 15 Year Anniversary on Friday 10 May, with an event attended by The Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling, Cllr Pam Bates, The Deputy Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling, Cllr Jill Anderson and our local MP, Tom Tugendhat.

We would like to say a sincere thank you to everyone who attended on the day.
We would also like to thank all our staff, pupils, parents/carers, Trustees, Patrons, and friends who have supported us through the years, to help make Quest the Outstanding school it has become.

Lessons at Quest

The pupils are enjoying their lessons after the Easter break.

We offer our pupils a full and wide ranging educational experience, whilst maintaining a clear focus on skills that are essential for their personal development and well being, such as communication, behaviour and independence skills.

We have a distinctive teaching methodology, based on fundamental principles of behaviour science, and a curriculum specifically designed for our pupils’individual needs.

 

German Theme Day

The pupils have all enjoyed German Theme Day today.  They have been learning about Germany by sequencing German stories, tasting food, making the flag and playing German games.  The day ended with our own German festival  in the hall with lots of dancing to German music and tasting Ginger Beer!
