It has been another extremely successful year for the school. Being named as ‘Special School of the Year’ in the national Shine a Light awards in March was fantastic recognition of the strong commitment of everyone involved with the school to ensure that our pupils receive the highest standards in education and care, particularly with regard to developing their communication skills.
A personal highlight for me was the ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ festival that Ashmount organised and hosted in June. It was great to see how well staff from across the school pulled together to provide an unforgettable interactive experience for our pupils and their peers from other special schools across the county.
Thank you to all those parents and carers who have been able to support the various events that we have run throughout the course of the year. This year, in particular, has seen record numbers attending our primary and secondary sports days, after school discos, summer fayre and our new parents’ coffee mornings— to name but a few.
On behalf of all of our pupils, staff and governors, I would like to say a huge thank you for all of your support this year. We look forward to seeing everyone back after the summer holidays!
