Welcome Back

Hello everyone,
I hope you have had a brilliant summer and are ready for a new school year!

All students are starting back on Tuesday 7th September. The staff will be back in busily getting ready on Monday. The start time for students will be 8:35am to finish at 2:45pm daily.

We have heard that there is a bit of difficulty with school uniform supplies. Please let us know if you are having difficulties and we shall see what we can do.

Can I ask that each student brings in a pencil case with pencils, pen, rubber, ruler, pencil sharpener and coloured pencils (optional). Each student also needs to bring a drinks bottle either daily or to leave in school.

The curriculum and activities will be around the topic of ‘magic and mystery’ for the first half term. Please see attached the ‘curriculum plan’ for the half term. From this you will be able to see the outline of what we will be doing each week.

This year we shall be returning to the canteen to chose and collect our lunch. PE will be with the mainstream PE teachers (they are lovely and very understanding of our students) supported by ARB staff. PE kit will need to be brought in for these lessons. It can be left on each child’s peg and we’ll make sure it comes home at the end of each half term.

We shall be continuing with regular handwashing, sanitising, and keeping a good space to ensure everyone is safe. Staff will also be continuing with wearing uniform that will be cleaned each evening to avoid any bugs/virus’ being brought in.

That’s it for me for now. I shall be in touch lots over the next year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for anything.

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone back, and welcome our new year 7 students to the ARB.

Mrs Hodson
