September - Welcome back everyone. Please see the Trafford Local Offer link below for details of services, workshops and information that you may find useful through the course of the year.
July - Wow! What a journey we have all been on these last few months! Well done to all of our staff, pupils and parents who have made our Home Learning journey so effective. It has been great to be able to welcome many of our children back in to school over recent weeks but for those who haven't been able to attend, whatever the reason, we want to make the transition back into school in September as smooth as possible for all our pupils and parents. In the Downloads Section, we have a really handy Transition Activity Pack for use over the holidays that may go some way towards smoothing this transition back into school. Here is a link to our Back to School in September video Back to School 20/21
Have a wonderful Summer break and we will look forward to welcoming all of you back on Thursday 3 September.
The fight for disabled children goes to Downing Street... Read all about it in a recent edition of First News in the Downloads Section!
More exciting news… The Educational Psychology Service now have a Facebook page! This has the function for parents to book a telephone appointment with someone from the team (although not to discuss specific children) and there will be a range of Facebook live sessions in areas such as managing anxiety and behaviour plus Q&A sessions etc.
