This week, we celebrated dyslexia awareness week. The children were given the opportunity to discuss how everyone learns differently and how our brains process information differently. We also found out about famous inspirational people who have dyslexia. Please see below the presentation shown in assembly.
At Horn Park we are constantly looking for ways to improve the provision on offer to both our children and their families. One of the ways we continue to strive towards this is through inviting feedback from the whole school community. We therefore encourage you to complete the parental questionnaire via the link below.
Dear Parents/Carers, Following on from my previous communication, I am writing to provide further details of the arrangements for the third and fourth day of NEU teacher strike action on Thursday 27th April and Tuesday 2nd May. Please look at this chart to see which classes are open or closed.
For those children in school, we aim to keep to the normal routines. Our kitchen will serve hot food and Alpha club will open as usual. You will be contacted by email if your child’s after school will be changed on these days. Year 6 booster sessions will be on as normal for the children who are in school. If your child is eligible for free school meals and you wish to access a hot school lunch, please click on link below and complete this form.
Whilst we are working closely with our staff union representatives, there may be circumstances where situations change with minimal notice. We are confident that those classes who we have identified as being open will do so. There may however be situations whereby a class which has been deemed to be closed is able to remain open. If this is the case, we will contact parents of children in that class at the earliest possible convenience on each day.
We appreciate that this situation will cause some difficulty for families and are sorry for the disruption it may cause. We remain committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our pupils and delivering high-quality teaching. Please bear in mind there is the possibility that agreements could be reached between national unions and government officials and strikes could be called off. In this case, school would be open for all children as normal. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
