Thank you for an amazing Inclusion Awareness Week 2019.

  • Our Teacher of the Deaf delivered workshops to every year group and taught us all how to finger spell.
  • We raised over £100 for the Down’s Syndrome Association with our ‘Lots of Socks’ day.
  • We raised over £120 for the Makaton Charity with our raffle.
  • We welcomed Mike Harris, a senior Makaton Tutor, who delivered workshops and an assembly for all children, staff and Reception parents.  See below for a video which shows the Makaton signs taught to the children.
  • Thank you to our ‘Makaton Choir’ for showcasing their talents in our Makaton assembly.
