Helping us to help each other

We want everyone involved.

 

Carlette held her first open Coffee Morning

“Our first coffee morning since the pandemic was off to a great start

It was such a success and very well attended. Thank you very much to all the parents/carers

who came along, I really enjoyed meeting you all and sharing ideas with you. I was delighted

to see how you were all open, honest and helped one another out, whether it was through

your advise or just sharing your story with us.  Some of the comments said about the day were

“It felt like a family” another said “It was good to get some ideas from the other parents” and

Another said “ When is the next one?”

It is important for us as a school to support our learners and their parents/carers as much as we can,

to continue working in partnership and maintaining a positive relationship. I have heard

some of your concerns and going forward.

I would like to invite various specialists from other departments

to come and have a chat with yourselves and maybe answer some of your questions.

We will be holding a coffee morning once every half term and so if you are free,

please do come along. If you have any ideas please feel free to call or

send me an email as we are always open to suggestions.”

We have raised nearly £8,000 to help fund an outdoor sensory tunnel

 

Thank you to everyone who has donated so generously and thank you especially to the Grange family who decorated their house for Christmas and brought in the donations.

We are now developing our outdoor sensory tunnel. We have learners with severe learning needs and many are non-verbal and have limited mobility. 

Our current tunnel is really basic and learners are not using it as much as we would like. 

The sensory tunnel will really benefit our learners as we can display different sensory materials. We are hoping to have different textures displayed, for those who want to use their hands to touch. Different lights displayed, so they can look around at the different colour lights using natural sunlight. For those who like to listen to sounds, we are hoping to have different sounds available and for our smell sense, we would love to have different plants for the learners to smell. The tunnel will be wheelchair friendly, so all learners can access the available features.

We are expanding the project thanks to the fantastic total raised, including improvements to other outside spaces too.

 

 

We would also like Parents, friends and supporters to help us create the tunnel by volunteering at a weekend in the Spring.  Please let the office know if you might be able to help us and we will contact you nearer the time.
