18/03/2024 – Don’t throw away, recycle for another day!

‘The World Around Us’ Week

This week was ‘The World Around Us’ week with the theme of recycling.  Upper jumped into exploring the curricula area known as The World Around us (Science week) doing their recycling during enterprise. We live in a rich area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s no wonder then you can find our pupils often out and about adding to the beauty of Silverdale. When back with resources they were exploring different textures. Peaches responded to the sound of the paper and helped to fill the bag and Zak decorated the foxes tail! Go Bleasdale!

Below is a link to ‘ How to recycle more – with no extra effort!’ which includes lots of effortless tips on how to do your part to help the environment.

How to recycling more – with no extra effort!


As a group we explored the previous OFSTED report to recap on things we had been doing in the building. We looked at it through the lens of Why, How and What (thank you Mr. Senek). Teams were happy to learn that we had already made so much movement since our last report and are looking forward to seeing how we can further respond to the brilliant mirror that is OFSTED.


Training Day’s Investment in Human Capital

During our training day we explored a range of important issues, we all refreshed our moving and handling knowledge with some insightful and useful techniques, we spent time in our class teams discussing the education of our brilliant Bleasdale pupils, we discussed the vision and future of the school as a whole school team and we learnt about two new programs to the school ‘The Curiosity Programme” and “Attention Autism”. Both programs have their roots within intensive interaction and aids learners with their sustained engagement through multi-sensory and dramatic ways.

Staff photographs

Our staff had their photograph taken this week by our Parent Governor Russ. We are all looking forward to seeing our smiley faces on our website and in our gallery in the foyer!

Red Nose Day! A brighter future for all kids begins with you! 

This week we celebrated Red Nose Day with wacky hair day! We saw lots of great contributions from children and staff and we raised lots of money towards comic relief; your donations ensure that children have access to health services, nutritious food, quality education, and safe spaces to live, learn, work, play and so much more. We also loved seeing your contributions on our Facebook page!
