As part of celebrating success in school we are piloting a new aspect to celebrating star of the week.
When a child has been awarded a Star of the Week Certificate, the management team or office staff will support pupils to make a phone call home to share the celebaration with family. This will normally happen in the afternoon. We feel that this will provide an ideal opportunity to provide a real-life context for meaningful communication. This will be facilitated with a range of supports, including communication aids/talkers. Do not worry if family are unable to take a call, we will leave a message that can be shared together once your child arrives home.
This is a pilot, and we will seek feedback later in the term and will continue or tweak the project after we have evaluated the impact it has on pupils' well-being, self-confidence and learning.
