As you will be aware from our previous correspondence and through conversations with your child, we will be introducing a school uniform from September 2019.
Houses of Parliament
We have been incredibly fortunate to be given the opportunity which allowed us enhance the British Values curriculum taught in school. The purpose of the visit was to give pupils a greater understanding of how laws are made and how parliament works. It has also enhanced the pupil’s knowledge of democracy, which is being taught this term. As part of the visit pupils took part in a ‘Representation and Voting’ workshop where they held a general election where they experienced what it is like to be a candidate and a voter. The concept of the constituency was explained before pupils were divided into competing political parties where they created their own manifestos.
The trip also included a tour of the parliamentary buildings including:
- The House of Commons or House of Lords chambers
- A visit to the public gallery to observe the MPs or Lords working
- Westminster Hall, the last remaining part of the original Palace
- Central Lobby, at the very heart of the Parliamentary Estate.
AV1 Robots at Shepwell
Av1 Robots at Shepwell
The project is to support the education of children suffering from long-term physical and mental illness through the introduction of AV1 robots, which would enable the children to virtually attend school, socialise with classmates and remain connected to their home schools and communities.
Children who are anticipated to benefit from this approach may be affected by a variety of conditions such as leukaemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety disorders and recovering from transplants – they will now have the opportunity to participate in school even if they are unable to physically attend.
The initiative utilises a £522,142 grant from the Alternative Provision Innovation Fund from the Department of Education, to provide continued education to children absent from school due to long-term illness.
No Isolation will set up the robots, providing 24/7 technical support to the pupil, their family and/or carers, as well as the relevant training for each of the participating schools.
By using AquAid water coolers you help bring life-giving water to thousands of people every day. Our mission to help save lives is at the heart of everything we do.
Thanks to your support and a shared belief in making the world a better place, we have to date donated in excess of £12 million and helped bring a life-time supply of clean, fresh drinking water to more than 2 million people
As a start to their topic on sport, the pupils were treated to a tour of the molineux. They got to sit in the teams changing rooms and experience what it is like for both home and away teams on match days. As a follow on from this, two coaches from the Molineux Pan Disability Team are currently working with KS3 in PE for a 12 week period.
Guide Dogs Donation
Shepwell School are very proud to announce that we raised £340 for the guide dogs for the blind association.
Guide dogs came into Shepwell School, to talk to the pupils about why it is so vital that money is raised to allow training to continue.
Guide Dogs exists to provide life-changing services to the 360,000 people who are registered blind or partially sighted, and the two million people in the UK living with sight loss. We provide a range of services with and beyond the dog to help thousands of people with different needs lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives
