SEND Support - A Note from Nichola Jones (Assistant Director Inclusion, SEND and Wellbeing)


Dear Parent,

I hope you and your family are well. I’m getting in touch to invite you to take part in our short survey to share your experiences during lockdown and tell us your views on the support you have received from different education services.

Please complete one survey for each child or young person with SEND. The survey is anonymous, however you can choose to include your contact details at the end if you would like to be more involved in shaping future SEND services.

Click here to access the survey

Please feel free to forward this email on to other families of children and young people with SEND.

Thank you for taking part. We really value your feedback in helping us to monitor and continually improve our services for SEND families.  

Please note that the survey will close at 12 midnight on Monday 13 July 2020.

With very best wishes,

Nichola Jones

Curriculum logo design 


Next year, our curriculum is having a few changes!  We will still be doing our Project (IPC) lessons but with a greater focus on 6 skills and goals.  


These are Independence, Resilience, Co-operation, Communication, Respect and Thoughtfulness.


Your challenge is to design a new logo that incorporates all of the lessons that we cover within our project lessons (Geography, History, Science, Music, Art, Design & Technology and ICT) and the 6 skills and goals mentioned above.

Here is an example of what your design might look like.
