Business is Booming!

Our older students do lots of activities that help them to learn about independence, life skills, money and enterprise. In TG3 the group has been making planters - they screwed the wooden planks together to make troughs, painted them, decorated them then planted them up with either flowers or selections of herbs.

They looked fantastic and on Thursday they then sold them to staff - earning money for all of their hard work, which they will decide how to spend later this term.

Meanwhile, in TG2, every Friday the groups runs a Friendship Cafe, where other children and staff in school can come along and get a cuppa, toast, crumpets, bagels and occasional cakes. This week they out did themselves by also selling ice creams and ice lollies - they certainly read the market well as it was a hot day!

They were delighted to show off their skills - preparing food and drink, taking orders and serving and then tidying up for the next lot of customers.

IQM Assessor Matthew Cuss joined them in the outdoor version of their cafe, to enjoy a chat and a snack with the children. He had a great day with us and was delighted to be able to confirm that we are successfully retaining our status as a Flagship School for Inclusion.
