Even though this school is earmarked to close at the end of this term the staff have not gone away quietly. Last week they celebrated achieving Communication Friendly Schools status in less than two terms! The tutor Kirsty Murrell worked very hard to enable this to happen as have all the staff. What an achievement!!
"The whole morning was lovely; all of the children (including little ones from nursery and reception, sat beautifully for about an hour!) had a special celebration assembly. The Year 2s presented some of their own and their teachers’ memories of the school. Belinda the SENCo talked a bit about their Elklan journey and then I presented the 3 Lead Communication Practitioners with the school/nursery certificates. The Alderman Swindell bee then made an appearance to unveil the two Communication Friendly Setting plaques (one for nursery and one for the rest of the school) with the help of a couple of the children! The assembly was then finished with the school choir singing ‘Super Trouper’ and a whole school rendition of a very apt song ‘Every journey’.
Honestly, I just about managed to hold back the tears as it was a very emotional morning!! It is SO sad that this school is closing as they have put in so much work and are such a good example of a small, inclusive, communication friendly school in a needy area of Norfolk. I hope other local schools will follow their example and I will do my best to spread the word!"
