Dear Parent/Carer,

This week has been extremely busy for all of our children! At the start of this week Years 3, 4 and 5 performed their Easter Production to the whole school followed by a performance for parents, carers and family members on Tuesday. The children sang and performed brilliantly, reminding us of the importance of the events leading up to Easter Sunday. On Wednesday, we celebrated our second No Pens Wednesday event. The children were excited about the prospect of a day banning the use of pens and pencils and instead took part in a range of speech and language activities promoting good communication skills. We break up today for the Easter holiday – we hope you have a fantastic break with your family!


Start Summer Term

All pupils return to school, after the Easter break, on Monday 16th April (usual time). A new group of pupils have been invited to join Mrs Sullivan’s Early Bird Group for the Summer Term (this group will also start on the 16th April but at the earlier time of 8.30am). Mrs Owen’s Year 6 Kent Group and all early morning one-to-one support will also resume, at 8.30am, on this day.


Autism Awareness Week

This week has been designated as World Autism Awareness Week. HACS (Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support) are a local charity who provide support to children on the autism spectrum and their families. This support includes regular training events, monthly autism surgeries, respite activities and recreational trips/events. On Thursday 3rd May 2018, two representatives from HACs will be visiting our school to lead a short presentation for parents to speak about the services that they provide. Tea, coffee and pastries will be served at 9.30am, in our school Hall, shortly followed by their presentation. A separate invite will be sent home nearer to the time but you may wish to add this date to your diary/calendar. In the meantime, if you would like to find out more about HACs – please visit their website:



Parents’ Evening

Our next Parents’ Evenings will take place shortly after the Easter holiday on Tuesday 24th April and Thursday 26th April. This will be an opportunity to discuss your child’s latest assessment results and planned targets and support. A letter will be sent home, during the first week back, inviting parents to request a mutually convenient date/time. If your child has a Special Educational Need (SEN) their teacher will also review their current Individual Education Plan (IEP) with you and also share their revised IEP for the Summer Term.


Year 3 Swimming Lessons

Year 3 will start their swimming lessons on Wednesday 25th April. All pupils require a swimming costume, hat and towel (googles are optional). Girls should wear a one-piece swimming costume and boys require swimming trunks/shorts that are no longer than the top of their knees.


Courses for Local Schools

  • Strategies to support Dyscalculia (by author Ronit Bird)
  • Dyspraxia/DCD (activities to develop gross and fine motor control)
