We had an excellent Autumn term Link governor visit to ‘The Link’ Post 16, Linwood Campus today. We were told about the three Enterprise businesses, Tasty Bites – catering, Excellenz – seasonal product making and retail and Create and Grow – gardening and horticulture, from which the students have the option to work in. We visited the Food Technology room where the students in Tasty Bites were preparing the lunches ordered by staff today and the Excellenz students were working out the number of sales and the amount of money taken per product type from a recent coffee morning and sales event. We were impressed by the quality of products the Post 16 students were making in their Enterprise business groups.

Today I had an excellent Autumn term Link governors visit to Flamingos class Nurture Curriculum. I was able to see how the students were interacting with the staff and peers gaining valuable social and emotional skills. I could see how happy and regulated the young people were and engaged in making a Christmas village. I was able to listen to the positive conversations and how this was linking into the vision and values and echoing what the school moto stands for.

I had a lovely visit to Linwood Campus today to visit the two Early Years classes and to speak with Katie Hinchliffe (Curriculum Lead). It was great to see how well settled all the pupils are and to witness the great teamwork of staff.

I was able to visit Littlewood Campus today to visit both Acorns and Seedlings classes and to speak with Lindsay Bowen (Littlewood Lead Professional). There was a lovely calm and purposeful atmosphere and it was great to see the pupils following their daily routines with confidence.
