Summer School

Our Aims

The aim of the Year 6 Summer School programme was to incorporate a blend of academic and enrichment activities, whilst given our students the opportunity to build relationships and confidence ready for their September start.

Due to the small cohort of young people transitioning into Year 6 we extended the offers of places for Summer School to pupils identified as having missed a lot of school during the pandemic.

Engaging and Fun Activities

Summer School 2021 ran for one-week beginning Monday 26th July until Friday 30th July and during this time a variety of educational trips were offered, with each trip linking to the Autism Education Trusts targets. (AET)

Each trip provided engaging and fun activities encouraging teamwork and communication all aimed at students building positive relationships with peers and staff.

Parent/carer and student feedback was extremely positive with 100% of the feedback confirming that they would love Summer school to be a permanent date on the academic calendar.

The Feedback

“Ethan really benefited from going to summer school by having the opportunity of building new friendships and socialising with his peers and allowing him to get to know the new peers in his class and meet his teacher in a more relaxing environment outside of school. There were a great variety of trips that were both educational and fun. The whole experience promoted his well-being, enthusiasm and happiness and gave him the opportunity to visualise, experience and discuss information on a subject”

“I was scared to go into the war tunnels at first but was excited as I was allowed to set off the siren” (Jake, aged 12)
