This week has been a quiet one in school about which we were pleased. Some staff are still affected by illnesses – especially the flu, but not in the high numbers as we experienced earlier this term. Some pupils too have also been unwell and once again I would like to stress that if your son / daughter does have signs of a cold, flu or any other illnesses then it would be appreciated if they remained at home.
Some pupils participated in the Ability basketball tournament on Wednesday and all did very well. They came back full of vigour and enthusiasm, proud to have taken part. On Monday a group of pupils are going to Saracens for a spot of rugby, the first of three visits – the staff are just as enthusiastic and as excited as the pupils!
We are hoping that the part for the fan to control the pool air temperature will arrive this forthcoming week, so it can be fitted over the half term holiday. Once this is done then we expect the pool to be fully operational. Until then, the pool will only be used for those more active pupils who will be able to manage the extremes of temperature. We will all be very pleased when this is sorted!
This week, your son / daughters class teachers will be arranging to meet with you (unless you have an EHC Review meeting later on in the term) to discuss their progress with their individual targets. I know that some meetings took place last week and that there are more scheduled for next. We will look forward to seeing you.
This half term seems to have passed very quickly – we break up for the February half term holiday next Friday. Over the holiday, as always routine maintenance and cleaning work will be happening throughout school and in the Transitions Department.
I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoying the start of the Six Nations Rugby!
