Head of School Welcome
Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to our first newsletter of the new school year and what a start it's been! The children (and staff) loved their water sports at Swanpool with Elemental. It was great to see so many children push themselves out of their comfort zones and get stuck into the day. Clubs are back up and running, outdoor learning sessions are in full swing and new learning is taking place.

We've had a big revamp of some of our school spaces over the Summer and we're really excited to share with you our new sensory room. This was funded by a very generous donation from the Naval Children's Charity (please read on to see some photos). Our library has also had a complete overhaul and we have introduced a new reading system to support children in choosing books at the appropriate level for them.

Finally, we are really looking to increase our capacity within school for trips, special events and in class activities. One of the ways we can do this is with volunteers. If you would be interested in volunteering within the school, in any capacity, please come and speak with me. Perhaps you would like to hear readers for an hour a week or you would like to help with art lessons. The scope is endless and we're keen to hear what you might be able to offer.

Kind regards,
Mrs Swiggs

Nansloe's Sensory Room
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Naval Children's Charity for fully funding our brand new, bespoke Sensory Room. This is a huge asset for us at Nansloe and is already being used daily by individuals, groups and whole classes. This really wouldn't have been possible without their generous donation and we are beyond grateful.
