“Every Achievement Counts” Newsletter –23rd February 2018
It’s the beginning of a new half term and we have new pupils and staff to welcome. We say a very big welcome to Oliver and Roberto and their families. Oliver is in Titan class and Roberto has joined Mercury class. We sadly said good-bye to Jenny McGuckian (physio) on Monday but want to welcome Jackie Lee to Greenmead. Jackie is a locum working for St. George’s hospital and will be at Greenmead full time whilst we wait for a permanent physio to start. We are also very pleased to welcome Roxanne as our new deputy headteacher who has a very personal relationship with our school; her brother attended Greenmead a number of years ago and Roxanne started her SEN career as a support assistant at Greenmead. Roxanne is also a former pupil of Ronald Ross so is definitely returning to a familiar community.

Greenmead once again hosted an Open Day for Professionals in Wandsworth and our surrounding local authorities. The aim of this day is to promote our school to those professionals who provide services and provision to families who may have a child with complex needs. Those attended came mostly from our Early Years partners and we were very proud to show them around our new building and for them to see us in class learning. The professionals enjoyed the Q&A session provided by pupils in Jupiter class.
