Artist Emma came along to school with the stencils to support pupils to chalk on the outline letters, which the artists then spray painted onto the wall at the back of our pool - pupils in SEND can walk directly past this, and pupils in Autism walk on the road below…

We’ve had a fun week, with some nice spring weather that has meant children have been able to spend more time outdoors - doing lots of playing as well as Easter egg hunts! During the Easter holidays some staff are coming to school to develop the grounds in the sensory garden - we’ve had some donations, but if you know anyone or want to donate a bag of soil some plants, seeds or anything nice for our garden, please get in touch!

Then they painted pasta, which once dried, was used to decorate coloured eggs. Children also made nests for Easter chicks and painted chick…

Full Return to School!

Staff are being tested twice each week, most have had vaccinations and they are all wearing PPE, so we are making it as safe as we can for our fantastic children and staff…
