What makes this session inclusive –

Private use of a hired local hall so that there is additional space to get changed and disabled changing facilities. There will also be hot drinks available in the hall.

Can you help Portfield School?
The Friends of Portfield Special Needs School are looking for donations of items to enrich the learning experience of their amazing children.
The school wants to set up a Forest School, with hands-on learning, aimed at developing confidence and self-esteem and where the children will learn independence and social skills, taking place outdoors, in a woodland setting.
With squeezing budgets and covid making fundraising difficult these last few years they could really do with your help.
They have compiled an Amazon wish list and would be so grateful for any items that could be purchased through the list and will be given directly to the school.
If you can help, check out their shopping list here:…

What a fantastic first week we have had in Whale class this week. Everyone has settled in so well into our new classroom and routine and have welcomed our new friends with open arms!

We have enjoyed telling our friends all about our Summer holidays, taking selfies and painting self-portraits, writing ‘All About Me’ and working hard during Literacy and Numeracy.

We have also learnt all about Queen Elizabeth II and paid our respects to Her Majesty.

Caudwell Children is excited to announce the launch of our Get Sensory Packs! We’ve listened to our families who told us that occupying their children, finding appropriate and safe toys and the money to provide their children with the equipment they would like is even more difficult than usual at the moment.

In response to this, we have created The Get Sensory Pack to provide affordable sensory equipment to support disabled children during this especially difficult time. These packs are available to children who have a confirmed disability or chronic illness.

Families can get a sensory pack for £20, which is a reduction of 80% of the cost, providing they meet the criteria.
