Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

Attached are some documents, including consent forms, for a research project the students at Limpsfield Grange have been invited to take part in. The researcher is studying for a BA in Education at the University of Wolverhampton.

The aim is to find out how inclusion at mainstream secondary school can be improved, and behavioural and educational expectation adjusted, for the needs of the girl with autism.

As 10E are excellent at discussing their needs and how they are best supported, I have selected them to be the class to meet with the student.  This will involve a discussion as explained in the attached documents.  Please could you send the consent forms back into school, addressed to me, by Friday 31st March 2017.

Many thanks,
Janine Chippington

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

I would like to update you regarding our procedures for contacting the school about medication.

Please note that all medication sent into school must be in its original packaging with a current and correct prescription label. It is your duty to inform Jennie Flint (Deputy Head of the Residential Provision) of your intention to send medication in to school by email at miss.flint@limpsfield-grange.surrey.sch.uk and to copy Miss Phillips, Deputy Head (deputy@limpsfield-grange.surrey.sch.uk) into your correspondence.

This change has occurred as Sarah Taylor, our Residential Keyworker with responsibility for Health and Wellbeing, has moved on to pursue other interests. We wish Sarah luck for her future endeavours.

If you have any questions regarding this matter please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mrs Wild
Headteacher

Dear Parents, Carers and Family,

At Limpsfield Grange we are keen to work in partnership with parents, carers and families to ensure that our provision meets the needs of our students.

Each year we undertake to gather your views about your daughter’s experience at Limpsfield Grange, via a parent survey.  A link to the survey will be sent to you, in an email later this week, from Ruth Thorogate of Truth Marketing.  Ruth has worked with us on our parent surveys for a number of years.  Your responses to the survey questions are anonymised and are collated into a broad ranging report for the Leadership Team of the school.

If you have any questions about the parent survey please do not hesitate to contact me.  I would be happy to discuss the matter with you.

Kind regards,
Mrs Wild

Dear Parents and Carers,

It is with regret that I email to inform you that Miss Palmer our Maths teacher will be absent from school until the end of term.  I fully appreciate that this is far from ideal.  We will ensure that the girls continue to access the Maths curriculum in her absence.

I can only apologise for this further inconvenience, and would be happy to talk to you if you have any questions.

Mrs Chippington will be taking over responsibility for the 10P tutor group for the rest of the term.

Kind regards,
Mrs Wild
Headteacher

I have been asked by several parents how to purchase raffle tickets for the Christmas Fair if they are unable to attend.

I have been informed that if you send in money in an envelope stating what you would like it spent on i.e. raffle tickets, then Mrs Salter will ensure that tickets are bought on the day on your behalf.

As we don’t have a lottery licence we can’t legally send tickets home before the fair on the 10th December 2016.

Many thanks.

School Uniform Labelling

The following was Parentmailed on 22nd September 2016:

Good afternoon everyone,

Please ensure all items of your daughter’s clothing (jumpers, coats, cardigans, PE kit etc) are clearly labelled with her full name.
Unfortunately if clothing isn’t labelled we have no way of knowing who it belongs to and therefore we cannot return it to its rightful owner.
We would appreciate your co-operation in this matter.

Regards,
Mrs Matthews
