Resource Base Proposal

Edmund Waller Primary School has expressed an interest in opening a resource base provision for children with ASD at Edmund Waller. The school would provide a classroom and skilled staff to meet the needs of these children thus providing a valuable service to the community.  It would also improve the school’s current offer for children with SEND as it would increase expertise across the school as well as improving professional development opportunities for staff.  The specialist staff and resources would be able to be shared across the whole school.  This proposal is in line with the school’s vision and ethos.

Humanity – a culture of visible kindness where everyone is treated fairly and respectfully.

Creativity – an environment where children have the skills to think creatively, explore the world and communicate their findings with others.

Ambition – high expectations for all ensuring equitable access to the curriculum and other opportunities within school.

Year 6 Feeding Time!

Year 6 took their SATs tests this week. They were the first set of assessments held since the start of the pandemic. To try and reduce any anxiety or worry, we invited the whole of the year group in for breakfast from Monday – Thursday (there are no papers on a Friday).

We were delighted that so many of the children chose to join us each morning. There was a lovely calm atmosphere, which set the tone for the day.

A huge thank you to Ms Greenbank and Mrs Price for organising the breakfast choices and (wo)manning the toasters so efficiently

Heading Home

The children are en route and heading home.

Here are the last batch of photos – thanks so much for the positive comments, feedback and support.

The children are on-track for a 4pm return back to school. We will text all parents if they are going to be more than 30mins later than planned.

🔥Campfire Time🔥

A beautiful sunset and a lovely end to an action packed day.

Dinner was as well-received as the breakfast and the lunch… Fully refuelled, we are now singing songs round the fire!

The children have been fantastic all day. We have some tired humans with us and the staff are expecting a quicker bedtime tonight.

We will be up bright and early tomorrow morning for a full morning of activities, before we board the coach back to New X.

Thanks for all the positive comments – we have been sharing them with the children.

Feel free to leave some for the morning.

While some children tried hard not to get a drenching…

…Some just couldn’t resist the temptation!!

All back at the cabins, children feverishly preparing for a cabin inspection 😬😬

We will update you all on the general state of the rooms later 🙈🙈
