15 Jun Wargrave House Newsletter June 2021
I hope this newsletter finds you all safe and well. In spite of the challenges throughout this academic year, I am pleased to share that all our staff team are working tirelessly to finish the term well along with preparing for the next academic year.
As you are aware school and college is closed to students on Thursday 1 and Friday 2 July to undertake training and forward planning. Following the government’s plan to delay the easing of COVID restrictions initially until 19 July, we are naturally recognising the national protocol. All students will continue to remain within their class bubbles and mix with others in outside play as distanced as possible. We regularly review and update our COVID 19 risk assessments which are underpinned by Hands, Face, Space. All our provision is well ventilated, regularly deep cleaned, with students receiving regular reminders to maximise hand sanitisation and general hygiene practice. All our staff wear face coverings when transitioning across our premises. Amongst the highlights of this week’s newsletter you’ll hopefully enjoy reading about our ongoing developments and student participation within martial arts, horse riding and mountain monkeys.
Have a good weekend, Robin.
CEO – Robin Bush
We are looking forward to meeting you remotely next Thursday 24 June between 4pm and 6pm for our Parent’s Consultation Evening.
Class staff from both school and college will be delighted to share and celebrate the progress of your child. In preparation for this event, if at all possible, please have sight of your child’s recent progress report. We will send out a general text reminder early next week. We are very happy to share on our Facebook page the success of a former student, Joshua, who has recently gained accreditation through his level 3 assessments having left Wargrave House in 2015. Julliet Doherty, our Head of Post 16 Learning, was delighted to receive this news in person along with confirmation that Joshua has gained a place studying a Foundation Degree in Early Years and Education in September. Please take note of the wonderful article Alicia has written about role models who have inspired BASE 4 students. During the remainder of this half term, we will be continuing to support and challenge our students in all aspects of their learning, including Post 16 accredited learning courses, phonics development within school as well as a keen focus on all curriculum areas.
Wishing you a restful and enjoyable weekend, Stuart.
Head Teacher – Stuart Jamieson
