Rebound centre of excellence award plaque!

We are thrilled to announce that our Rebound Centre has been honoured with the Excellence Award plaque from the UK based international body for Rebound Therapy, a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional services.

Our purpose-built Rebound Therapy room is an extraordinary asset, enabling us to offer each pupil the unique benefits of rebound therapy. This state-of-the-art facility is overseen by our dedicated sports coordinator, along with several trained staff members, ensuring that our therapy sessions are conducted with the highest level of expertise and care.

The Rebound Therapy room is equipped with comprehensive features: padded walls and floors, a sunken trampoline, adjustable lighting, window blinds, air conditioning, music, and an overhead ceiling hoist. These elements create an optimal environment for therapeutic activities.

Rebound Therapy utilizes the therapeutic potential of trampolines to enhance movement, promote balance and body awareness, regulate muscle tone, foster relaxation, and support sensory integration. Additionally, it improves fitness and communication skills. Its versatility allows pupils to work on multiple target areas simultaneously, integrating seamlessly with various curricular goals.

This award is a recognition of our dedication to providing a holistic and inclusive therapeutic experience for all our pupils.

Development feedback week for our teachers

Last week, our Headteacher, Sefton, and Deputy Headteacher, Kath, and Lead Learning Practitioners Rebecca Parker and Lois Howarth conducted classroom observations to provide our teachers with comprehensive feedback. Each teacher received three highlighted strengths, showcasing their successes, along with three constructive points for consideration. This feedback was rooted in our key focus areas: Enabling Environments, Curriculum Relevance, Quality of Teaching, Sequence of Learning, Relationships and Behaviour, Outcomes, Progress, and Inquiry. Additionally, teachers were given an overall feedback comment to encapsulate their performance and progress. This is in-part recognising that we are always within the Bleasdale spirit of “Learning together, Achieving Together”.

 

Consultation Update

Following a series of positive responses amid a spectrum of expressed sentiments, we are pleased to announce that the consultation will progress from its informal stage to a formal phase over the next six weeks. We encourage you to visit our website’s homepage (https://bleasdaleschool.lancs.sch.uk/), where you can share your insights and download the consultation booklet.

Your feedback is invaluable as we move forward, and we look forward to engaging with our community more deeply.

 

Teacher development

Last week the focus for continuous personal development was Phonics. We explored the structure and resources from the Twinkl scheme to deliver high quality predictable phonic sessions, for all 3 pathways. ‘To Do’ students will focus on phase 1 environmental sounds, ‘To Be’ students will start to explore rhyme and alliteration and begin to work towards phase 2. ‘To Know’ students will work through the different phases to support blending and segmenting of sounds to read and spell words.

For a deeper understanding and further details, please speak with your child’s class teacher.

 

What’s been going on around School?

Our brand-new Squirrels class had a delightful time during their first food prep lesson last week! The young chefs eagerly followed a set of instructions to craft their own delicious jam sandwiches. Afterwards, they proudly captured photographs of their culinary creations to showcase their achievements.

We look forward to many more culinary adventures with our talented Squirrels!
