To find out 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. You will also find a link to the parent section of the “Thinkuknow” website. This is is an education programme for online safety, recommended by the NSPCC.
In line with government advice, we have been carrying out COVID testing for our staff twice a week at school with lateral flow testing. Most of our pupils have been attending school throughout the recent school closures, however, from 8th March, all pupils will return to school. Staff will continue to be tested twice a week but will do this from home. Throughout the pandemic, we have endeavoured to keep our pupils and staff as safe as possible, implementing robust additional cleaning, social distancing, a “bubble” system and regular testing.
On Monday, we look forward to welcoming back the pupils who have been learning from home.
The school will be closed again tomorrow (09.02.21) due to adverse weather conditions affecting a high number of our staff not being able to travel to school.
The School is closed today (Monday 8th February) due to the weather conditions.
The pupils have all settled back into school following the Christmas break. They have been working hard on all of their targets. We embed Speech and Language and Occupational therapy into daily 1.1 learning programmes to ensure repetition and generlisation throughout the day.
We also welcome a new pupil to the school this term.
The pupils are busy rehearsing and making props for our Christmas Play. This year, the play will be Live Streamed for the parents and carers of the pupils over a secure “invite only” platform to ensure we are COVID safe.
This week is the UK Anti Bullying Week. The event is organised by Anti Bullying Alliance with the theme this year being “United Against Bullying”. Our teachers have been delivering lessons to the pupils to reinforce the importance of being kind and how their behaviour impacts others around them.
We have also been testing our facilities to continue delivering our group lessons should our teachers need to isolate during this pandemic. The set up worked well and the pupils seemed to enjoy the different method!
