Dear Families,

Our final week of the Autumn Term is next week, and we are looking forward to a festive end to the term. Class teams and specialists teams have made the learning environments multi-sensory with immersive sensory activities across this week. We are looking forward to the end of term assemblies which celebrate the achievements of all pupils.

Tuesday, 18th December 10am: Join us for the 'Festive Parent/Carer Coffee Morning' at 10am on Tuesday. The programme will begin with a presentation of the different activities that took place this week through our curriculum focus of the 'Winter Festivals'. The School Charity Trustees are also joining us to share their fundraising plans for the year.
