School Update 31st January
Hoping you are all safe, well and successfully dodging the rain clouds…
Another jam packed week in the bank at Abbot’s Way, with students noticeably settling, overcoming anxiety and fully engaged in their learning.
We have received daily interest in our school and are excited to welcome more prospective students over the coming weeks for taster days and we have been impressed with the examples being set and the welcoming approach by our current student group.
We are thrilled to confirm our new Therapy team, who have been busy working behind the scenes for sometime, is now in place to ensure the very finest therapeutic approach is delivered and embedded in the ‘Abbot’s Way’ Way.
The Bios for our therapy team, Karen Gadd (OT), Lianne Krynauw and Sara Plowright (Speech and Language) will be uploaded to our website in the coming days.
Our Therapy team will be supported by our Therapy Associate Craig Glen who has been supporting developments at AWS to ensure we have a pioneering therapeutic approach to complement our all round unique provision which is the absolute best for our students.
Somerset LA - We are pleased to report that we have received very positive feedback from Somerset LA confirming that they will name and fund AWS within section I of the ECHP. We are still waiting to receive the legal paperwork from them which we will chase once again tomorrow to expedite matters which are now overdue.
Planning permission - Our plans are now drawn up with the next stage of our application being submitted within the next few weeks.
We will keep you posted each step of the way.
As ever, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Hellen, Gareth and the Abbot’s Way Team
