Dear parents,

I would like to thank you for all your energy and dedication towards providing the best care and education possible at home during these challenging times. There have been many challenges and changes over the last four months, yet there have been some opportunities.  I hope our website, Facebook page and Dojo communications have guided you in some way and continue to do so into next academic year.

Meanwhile, I would like to wish you all a restful and safe summer together. 

All the best, Jessica de Vries (SENDCo).

Face Covering Exception Rules for People with Learning Disabilities and Autistic People (see attached template)
As of Monday 15th June 2020, everyone must wear a face covering when on public transport if they can, but importantly there are exemptions for those who need it.

People with certain health conditions, disabled people, people who are autistic, people with learning disabilities and children under the age of 11 will not be required to wear a face covering if to do so would cause them distress, harm or cause problems for people who need to lip read or use facial expressions to communicate. This exemption also applies to others whose wearing of a face covering would cause distress, harm or communication problems with the person they are travelling with.

Photosymbols has produced an exemption card template for people to use: simply cut out the relevant card and keep it on you to show while travelling. Please see the attached template you can cut out and use.

If you would like to request a copy of the WPCC Summer 2020 Short Breaks Activity Bulletin please use this link below and complete the simple form.  Order requests must be submitted by 5pm on Sunday 5th July.

Many free resources can be found on the ELSA Support Website.  In schools an ELSA is an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant. ELSAs support children with their social skills, emotions, bereavement, anger management and self-esteem by using social stories, therapeutic stories and counselling skills. 


This list of SEND resources has been developed with a focus on accessibility and inclusivity and is based on the recommendations of trusted organisations, charities, multi-academy trusts and special education headteachers.


Sibs is the only UK charity for children and adults who are growing up with or have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. We provide information, support and training on sibling issues for adult siblings, young siblings, parents and professionals.
