26/02/2024 – Spring Has Sprung!

Progress, Progress, Progress

The first week back after half term had teachers share with leaders of the school the progress pupils having been making on the new curriculum. We currently share the information, and where things aren’t quiet hitting the mark, we adjust learning to meet the needs of the individual. It certainly has made for some brilliant results – well done Bleasdale Pupils!

Achieving together, Learning together

Bleasdale colleagues have completed a range of courses and we are really proud of the work they have been doing. We call this CPDL – which this week focused on Communication and Lifting and handling – Go team!

Extra Miles

Two members went that extra mile this week! One supported parents with some PA work for their child and successfully took one of our pupils to the cinema who enjoyed the whole film! Another staff member completed their medications course in record time so that she can begin supporting pupils in their phase. The Bleasdale team never cease to amaze us!

Building for the Future

We currently have a large range of traders in upgrading the therapy buildings to support Bleasdale’s future. During times like these it’s very much about how we find new ways to work as a Team with new colleagues, and this week has been no different. Everyone has been so accommodating when things have changed such as fire alarms, consideration for how we use our car park and a change to our internet use. The works should be completed over the Easter period so fingers crossed to fruitful outcomes.

Thanks Guv’!

Many of you will have seen our Vice Governor in and around our building doing more than you can imagine to support staff and the school in to a bright future. Just to mention a few, he’s been supporting staff on their thinking around joining a Trust, taking down rotten and dangerous trees, organising new planters, putting up and taking down boards, challenging the headteachers strategy, moving wardrobes, and even joined us at the celebration tree this week (where we hear of each and every child’s weekly achievement) to name only a few items on his long list. So a big thank you to our governors for all the input they have for the school. The school wouldn’t be the same without you.
