General Information

 

Home School Dairies

We ask families and carers to return the home / school diary each day, as this will enable the class staff to provide comments and information about your child’s day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with the class teacher.

 

Individual Education Plans (IEP’s)

These set out the priority educational targets that your child is working on for the term. IEPs are updated each term and sent home. If there is anything that you would particularly like us to working on please just let us know.

 

Reading Books

All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories and fill in the reading record to let your child's class staff know how the have gotten on.

 

Magic Moment Books

Your child will also be sent home with a Magic Moments Book. This is an exciting way to share all the wonderful things that your child does at home. Its also a way to record any special moments, anything that your child does for the first time and anything that they enjoy doing. We would also love it if you could send the book back in at the end of a half term or after a holiday so that we could share your child's amazing achievements.

 

Snack and Cookery Money

We kindly request that you send in £2 a week. This will go towards snack, cookery ingredients and sensory items (we use a lot of these) that we use each week.
