Newsletter March – Wargrave House School

Welcome to our latest newsletter.

Thank you for your good wishes following my return post surgery. It has been great to see the enthusiasm of all our students on site alongside the commitment of our dedicated staff.

A particular welcome this week to Shauna Donohoe who has joined us as our new Occupational Therapist, going forward I am sure she will be a great addition to the Wargrave team. In addition to this newsletter, you will have received a separate correspondence outlining our strategy for the full/extended opening of school, college and residential care with effect from Monday 8 March. We fully appreciate what a trying time the pandemic has created and hope that you feel some reassurance through this communication. Given that, circumstances may change at any given point we have introduced a dedicated email address, which will enable you to inform us at anytime outside of normal office hours, of any COVID related matters that could impact on your child’s ability to attend school/college. The email address is: covidresponse@wargravehouse.com

I look forward to being able to support the excellent work undertaken by staff with the best interests of your young people at heart.

Best wishes, Robin.

CEO – Robin Bush

We hope this newsletter finds you safe and well. We are all excited for the opportunity for afull return to school, college and residential next week. Your son/daughter can continue to enjoy their learning and interaction with staff/peers in a safe and caring environment through our compliance with our risk assessment and day-to-day effective management of systems.

This week typifies our staff’s response to providingeffective experiential learning for our students through World Book Day. Our students werethoroughly engaged and consistently enthused through the interactive literacy activities provided.

Amongst the highlights were BASE1 becoming a re-imagined Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory complete with a gigantic ‘Blueberry’ whilst RISE2 was transformed into Hogwarts!

Throughout this term, it has been wonderful to see a gradual increase in students’engagement with reading for pleasure.

Staff are working hard to maximise all strategies forboth reading and communication. In the near future, we will be providing you with aworkshop to promote strategies that enhance learning and understanding linked to phonics,literacy and emotional processing in conjunction with our education and therapy staff.

Regards, Stuart.
