Message from the Head
Well I cannot believe we are here again getting ready for Christmas celebrations! What a busy and successful start to the new school year we have all had. A number of new staff joined us this year including Tom, our new Assistant Head. We have further improved our specialist provision with Mike joining Pete in the P.E department (which hopefully some of you experienced on the open day). There are also two new class teachers Carlos and Rachel who have already become invaluable members of our team. We have continued to build our teaching assistants and care teams with new starters in both of these teams. As always we have welcomed new young people to Bladon and our students are always keen to help and Matt providing outdoor education
and support and make new friends. The site is continuing to be improved and updated which hopefully you will notice when you visit us next. This includes classroom refurbishments and we are now working on developing our outdoor spaces. A key aim for us this academic year is to improve communication with our parents and carers. You may have already noticed we have a new text service that we are using. Also look out for a Friday email that could mean your child has earnt star of the week. Please do let us know if there are other ways we can improve how we work with you. This has been a very busy start to the academic year with staff as always planning personalised timetables and setting high expectations for
our students. But we have had some fun along the way dressing up on Roald Dahl Day and Comic Relief with, of course, the Senior
leadership team leading from the front!
