End of Spring Term 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,


This week has marked a full year since we first went into lockdown. What a strange and fragmented year it has been. However, your children have coped magnificently, and since returning on 8th March, have re-established relationships with staff & peers, and showed great resilience in their efforts to get back to routine. 


We finish the Spring term tomorrow and are looking forward to Easter Egg Hunt and a dress down day. If your child wishes to come to school in their home clothes rather than school uniform, they are very welcome to. 


We were extremely proud of how children joined in with Red Nose Day this year. There were some fantastic Superhero costumes, and the donations raised £176.10 for comic relief. Whilst we appreciate autistic children can often find change difficult, they were clearly well prepared for the day and therefore had lots of fun. Well done and thank-you! 


Over the first weekend of the Easter break, it is extremely important that you alert the school if you have a positive case of Covid-19 in your household. You can contact the school using the office email address: Alternatively, you can call 07742 800987 (10am-12 noon). We will need information about any positive cases to be able to liaise with Public Health if necessary and do our own contact tracing. 


If you have any Safeguarding concerns during the Easter break, you can call the Leicester Duty and Advice service on 0116 4541004; this is for Social Care support or Early Help support if you are having a crisis. The service is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.  


As we get to the end of the Spring term now, I am sure we are all looking forward to some warmer weather and lighter nights ahead when we may actually be able to get together with others outside of our households, perhaps having an Easter Egg hunt or simply spending more time enjoying the changes in nature outdoors. The picture celebrates the beautiful colours of the festival of Holi which is being celebrated 28th- 29th March.  


Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy this precious time with your child and please do stay safe. 


Yours sincerely,

Sarah Osborne
