First half term at Unity Academy
Unity Academy our new Alternative Provision has now been open for half a term and is in full swing of school life. There are 19 children at the school, which will rise to 24 this half term.
Katherine Rock, Deputy Head Teacher said, “It has been a brilliant first half term and children have settled well and enjoy coming to school.”
MAC Makes Music has been visiting the school each week to work with the children on songwriting, improvisation using musical instruments and recording their own music. All the children have been accessing gymnastic sessions each week and passed their Bronze Award.
The children have been enjoying using the cooking facilities and engaging in a range of DT activities. They held a Macmillan coffee morning in which the children baked cakes and biscuits and raised over £50.
Katherine commented “Every day is a highlight and we are really proud of all of our successes, staff and children, no matter how small."
Kuldip Berdesha (the headteacher) and her team have set the school up superbly and it is making such a difference already.
"We have our first child going back into a mainstream school after being out of education for over a year which is fantastic!”
Well done to all at Unity Academy on a very successful first half term.
