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.
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 particular like us to be working on please just let us know.
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 style and levels for each child. Unfortunately we are unable to send reading books home at the moment due to COVID 19 restrictions, but there are lots of free online books which we also use in school, links below.
We kindly request that you send in £2 a week. This contributes to any weekly resources that class might need such as cookery ingredients or class snack.
