House Groups News
Our recent whole school competition was ‘Sport Relief’, whereby we had lots of activities for students to join in. All students were given a t-shirt of the colour of their house to wear. All 4 houses came together at the end of the day in Gracie Fields to celebrate the day with the presentation of individual awards. Well done to Ash for winning Sports Relief. Well done to Oak for overall winners of the spring term.
We recognise and celebrate students’ achievement through awarding house points. Each time a student is awarded a house point, they are given a token of the colour of their house, which is then dropped into the house point counter located in the front of the house display board, which in turn is then logged into our system.
Throughout each term there are various activities and competitions students can join in to earn more points for their house. We celebrate our achievements on the last Friday of each half term, whereby students and staff attend their own house assembly. Certificates and awards are presented by the house leaders and the winning trophy to the house with the overall winning house points.

Homework can be a whole range of things and may appear very different from what is set in mainstream schools but is equally valid for your child. It will vary for each young person and is likely to change as a student gets older, develops or if their needs and priorities change.
It may, for example, include one of the following:
· Home and school working on consistent strategies for behavior following an agreed behavior support plan.
· Using particular symbols, signs or objects or words to support your child’s understanding and communication.
· Using a particular communication aid or system at home that has been advised by therapists.
· Family and school using consistent strategies to support a child needing sensory support.
· Having a regular reading book or a piece of work to complete at home.
· Working on a toileting, dressing or eating/drinking programme.
Our policy is underpinned by the belief that we want to support and work with you to help your child achieve the very best they can.
Please contact your child’s teacher if you want more support or guidance in this area and also use the opportunities at the annual review / ‘my plan’ meeting to discuss this further.
