Head Teachers news
This half-term has been a challenging one, with lots of staff and students absent as the pandemic continues. I think you will all agree that despite working under pressure a lot of excellent work and enriching events have taken place including visits for Singing Hands Organisation. Singing Hands teach pupil Makaton through signing to popular songs. We also had a great day of stories delivered by teachers and by the Bag books organisation. I am looking forward to celebrating Easter with the children and visiting St Marys Church this week.
Behind the scenes more work has gone on to keep our new website updated, and we have written our new School development plan which you can see online.
We are looking forward to the summer term when we are hoping that good weather will give us the opportunity to get out and about using our minibus, and enjoy our outside play spaces.
In most of the community measures related to the pandemic have been lifted, but for us at Oaklands as in all special schools we continue to use safety measures to keep everyone safe. I have been asked to let parents of children aged 5-11 know that there is going to be a vaccine programme for this age group. We have not yet been offered delivery of vaccines in school, so I would encourage you to book when you are contacted by the NHS,
I would like to thank you all for your ongoing support and wish you all a very happy and safe Easter.
