Welcome to the new school year and decade! We are looking forward to a rewarding and productive year from all of our DSR-7 learners. We hope that each learner journeys through the year feeling challenged and supported as they develop their skills and knowledge, that they embrace their learning within a safe and supportive environment. We look forward to working with families and ask you to share your ideas, encouragement or concerns with us so that we can provide the best learning environment possible for every child.
This term is already shaping up to be busy with various activities scheduled for our learners. Please note that there is a Pupil Free Day on Monday 17th February 2020. Staff will participate in professional learning with staff from other schools in the Modbury Partnership.
Enclosed in this newsletter is a term planner which shows our 2020 important dates, we ask you make notes of these dates and if possible join in these events.
