Dear Families,

Today is a very special day because it is National Teaching Assistants Day. The Teaching Assistants, Higher Level Teaching Assistants, SEN Care Assistants, Positive Behaviour Support Mentors, and Family Inclusion Team Mentors work so hard to make the climate for learning across our school positive and safe. Their passion and commitment to the education of our amazing pupils is felt daily. We are so lucky to have such an incredible group of support staff, and are shining a light on the role they hold in our community. 

Last week's newsletter provided an overview for this half term (https://swisscottage.camden.sch.uk/news/2022-09-09-scs-update-09-09-2022).

We are sending home a printed pack in your child's bag today. The pack contains useful information to support us in working together. Each pack contains the following:
-    Overview for 2022-23 including our School Values, Vision and Mission
-    Your child's class timetable
-    The visual poster of their classmates, teacher, and support staff
-    Their targets for the Autumn Term. The targets are known as 'Personal Learning Intentions'.
-    The overview of the medium-term planning to inform potential home-school links.

We uploaded images of the classroom environment and class timetable into your child's individual 'Evidence for Learning' journal. The next upload will be on 23rd September 2022. Please inform the class teacher if you need any support with your logon or password setup.
