We are very pleased to announce details of the Turney School transition phase that will take place towards the end of the summer term as we settle all of our pupils into their new classes. Rather than wait until September for this process, we will be putting in place our teaching arrangements for the 2011 / 12 academic year from June 27th onwards. This will allow all pupils to feel comfortable in their new classroom surroundings, as well as the opportunity to develop a relationship with the adults that they will be working alongside.
Our current Class 11 and Class 12 pupils will officially be leaving Turney School on June 10th once their entry Level and GCSE exams are finished. We will of course welcome the pupils back into the school for various end of term events, the most important being the annual Leaver’s Assembly. Details will be sent home closer to the date.
Other recent news taking place around Turney School has been the building of the two sensory gardens – one for Key Stage 1 & 2, and another for Key Stage 3 & 4. These are outdoor safe and relaxed play spaces, with the aim of stimulating all pupils in a safe environment. A soft astroturf surface has been laid, and we encourage all pupils to explore the space during playtime and to interact with their friends.
Finally we would like to thank all of the Turney Pupils who took part in our charity Kick competition towards the end of the Easter Term. We are pleased to announce that £48 was raised for a children’s cancer charity. We staged various football related activities on the day, the highlight of which was the penalty taking competitions. We were especially pleased in the way in which this event has been pupil led. A selection of our pupils suggested that they wanted to raise some money for this particular charity, and then set about planning and organising the best way to achieve this. Congratulations to all of those involved.
