Welcome to Southview School


Newsletter No 200

Friday 12th September



This September sees a number of new learners joining our school, as well as a number of new staff, and after the first week everyone has settled in really well! Our new staff will be introducing themselves to you briefly in this newsletter. As part of our development planning process, we have a number of new initiatives we’ll be working on this year to further enhance our provision for your children. We’ll be publishing our School development Plan on our website, which will give you more details. I’m also pleased to report that our Music Therapist, Elaine, is now with us for an extra day a week.

My thanks also in advance for any comments you may have on our Local Offer document, which went out earlier in the week. I welcome, and am keen to hear, your views and suggestions. We always have the logistical issue of not being local for many of our families, so email may be a more convenient way to pass on any comments and suggestions you have on this, or any other general comments;


Finally, Ray (our Chair of Governors) and I attended the opening of the new Witham Leisure Centre on Saturday. This is a fantastic new resource and we have been working closely with them to ensure that the facilities offered meet our learners’ needs. Subject to some final checks, we hope to be making use of their pool next week.

We’re all really looking forward to working with you and your children this year and I’m sure this will be another really positive year!

Best wishes

Julian Cochrane
