Harvest Assembly

Learners had fun and enjoyed performing for parents, family, carers and friends.

Learners and staff from primary phase enjoyed getting into character and dressing up as pirates, some of them even have their face painted for the performance song “Portside Pirates”. Bailey and Lewis used their communication devices to introduce and thank the audience for coming. All the learners were fully involved using either Makaton signing for the sea, dancing, playing an instrument or using a prop.

Learners from middle phase performed the “Autumn Harvest” song with some Bollywood dance moves, while the college phase learners gave parents a warm welcome with a hot drink.


We would like to congratulate Jessica G and Jessica.B for their Guides Jack Petchey Awards. Well done girls!!!


Christmas card Competition

We have decided this year to look to trial professionally producing every child’s Christmas card.  You can also purchase the print as a cup, coaster, notepad, wrapping paper or thank you card. Please note we have decided to reduce the cost of each of these items from what is shown on the advert and order form to the costs shown below.

Thank you Card



If you wish to pre-order any of these items you can either complete the order form and return this with the amount owed (cash or cheque to the office or purchase this using School Money by Monday 14th November. If we receive enough orders each child will have a copy of their card to keep for free. The items you order will be delivered to the school by 6th December. We will also sell some of these cards at the Christmas Party


Music Therapy Room

 I am pleased to say that thanks to School Fund support, the storage room located beside the front entrance will be converted into an additional therapy space for Music Therapy and other learner support. The main works will be completed in half term to have a working room, with the main decorating to be completed during November. The space outside our main entrance will be reduced to create storage for this room so you will notice a significant change when learners return! – Regards, Stuart Henty.


Reminder:  Can we please have the completed data collection sheets returned as soon as possible as these details are very crucial and need to be updated every year.
