We hope this finds you well as we look ahead to the final two weeks of the Spring Term.
Workshop for Parents / Carers, 20th March: We previously highlighted two workshops in our newsletter and have planned a third through parent feedback. We are really pleased that these sessions are supporting families and bringing you together as a group to discuss useful topics.
- 'Preparation for Adulthood' Workshop (Upper School): Monday 20th March, 10:00-11:00
SEND Parents Day, 24th March: Camden Parents Forum and SENDIASS are holding a full day event for parents. The event involves a number of speakers and the opportunity to meet with other parents. The flyer is included in the newsletter so that you can book a free place for this event. Rob from our school’s Family Inclusion Team will drive a group of parents through the school minibus (15 spaces available). Please contact the school to book this with Rob.
EmployMEnt Pathway: The EmployMEnt Pathway offers meaningful and functional work experience for pupils in Post-16. It supports pupils to understand and be motivated to join the world of work. There are three EmployMEnt Pathways that pupils can access; ‘Card & Design’, ‘Event Hosts’ and ‘General Store’. Each Pathway enables pupils to engage with job tasks that are appropriate to their strengths and preferences.
In preparation for transition to college or supported internships, pupils work towards an accreditation and complete a portfolio/Vocational Profile showcasing their work, skill development and preferences of roles. For more information, visit: swisscottage.camden.sch.uk/learning/employment-pathway
Optional Uniform: The optional school uniform includes polo tops, jumpers, jogging bottoms, book bags, and backpacks. It is available to buy via the Pay360 payments system. If you still need to register with Pay360 Education Payments, we can help you setup the account. For more information, visit: swisscottage.camden.sch.uk/families/school-uniform
Term Dates: A reminder that the last day of term is Friday 31st March, and the full list of term dates are included in the newsletter and on the school website: swisscottage.camden.sch.uk/parents/termdates
