Interfaith Week 2022
In the final week of November 2022 we took part in Interfaith Week to increase our understanding of different faiths and people of religious and non-religious beliefs.
We celebrated the end of the week with a showcase of work that pupils had produced to share our learning with each other.
There was some fabulous examples of learning and also lovely discussions as they viewed each others work.

A Social Story to support students to understand coverage of the War
Below is a Social Story to help explain current events surrounding the war in Ukraine. This is upsetting and unsettling for many people at the moment and this resource can be used to help explain and talk about the situation if you feel that your student would benefit from additional reassurance and understanding.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic and restrictions this year there will not be a Christmas Fayre.
However, students gain valuable experiences in creating items for this event, so will continue to make their enterprise items. Students in P16SSt have worked on their Desktop Publishing Skills to create a catalogue of items with descriptions and prices. This also has an order form for you to make your purchases.
As a school we value your support for our events so hope that this will be just as successful.
Please return your order form to school ASAP, to avoid disappointment.
