Dear Families,

There is such an energised atmosphere across the school as we enter our final half term of the academic year. Learning across Lower and Upper School has embraced the weather to take learning outdoors. We are looking forward to the focus across the next two weeks on a lesson in the community for every class. The curriculum focus of life skills and citizenship will support pupils in contextualising learning beyond our school environment, with careful safety measures in place for COVID-19. 

Community Lesson

Your child’s home-school book will have the date/time/and location of your child’s lesson in the community. Classes have planned this to take place in small groups or as a whole class based on the objectives of the lesson. Your class teacher will inform you of options for a parent to join where this is possible. If you have any questions, please contact your class teacher. 

Evidence for Learning

The dates for uploads into the family portal of EfL are Friday, 17th June and Friday, 1st July. The family app is available to download and information on that is located here:

School-led Tutoring Programme

All schools have received specific funding from the Department for Education to provide targeted tutoring within the school day. We have planned tutoring sessions for all pupils and they will take place across the next three weeks. The sessions are taking place with specialists that work within our team and also additional intervention specialists. The focus of the tutoring sessions is on communication, literacy, numeracy, and functional skills. We will provide an update on your child’s sessions and progress within the end of year progress report. 

Summer Term Workshops for Families

We have updated the family workshops to include yoga for parents. The workshops for all families across this half term are located here:
