    RE Family Challenge

    Most year groups this term are studying the Salvation concept in Christianity. This is the Christian belief that humans have been saved from sin, death and separation from God by Christ's death on the cross and his subsequent resurrection.

    For this term's challenge families were asked to work together to create an Easter garden whilst talking about, and sharing together, what Easter means to you. We were so pleased to receive over 30 separate gardens. You are all so creative!  

    To view all the Easter activities visit the Easter Activities album HERE

  •  Autism and Us Parent Programme

    Autism and Us Parent Programme

    Autism and Us

    The programme is for parents/carers of Devon primary and secondary school children, pre or post diagnosis. Access is for families of Children & Young People (CYP) who are currently on the autism assessment pathway, in addition to families of CYP who have received an autism diagnosis.

    During and after a diagnosis parents and carers can have many questions about autism and may feel isolated in managing their child’s needs. Children’s needs also change over time, and information and advice received when a child is younger may need to be updated to be relevant for the child/young person today. Attending the Autism and Us Programme gives parents and carers an opportunity to develop their understanding of autism and look at practical solutions to managing and supporting presenting needs.

    All sessions take place online and are approximately two hours long.

    To apply, contact:

    LDP-LearnerSupport@babcockinternational.com

    Autism Overview - 9.30 - 11.00am - 22nd June
    Communication - 9.30 - 11.00am - 29th June
    Understanding and Supporting Behaviour - 9.30 - 11.00am - 6th July
    Sensory - 9.30 - 11.00am - 13th July

  •  Well Done Year 6!

    Well Done Year 6!

    Year 6 have coped brilliantly with the SATs this week. No fuss - just resilience, determination and hard work. We are really proud of them all :)

    They enjoyed their game of rounders on the field this morning before choosing their own activities. We had dodgeball, football, tennis, hula-hooping, origami and colouring. It was lovely seeing the children set up and organise their own activities and working together ☺️ and then of course a visit from the ice cream van in the afternoon.

    Well done, Year 6 ����
