Neurodiversity Celebration Week – 22.3.23
Dear parents/carers,
Last week we took part in Neurodiversity Celebration Week. Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a worldwide initiative that challenges stereotypes and misconceptions about neurological differences. Mrs Silvanus led Key Stage assemblies introducing the week. The children found learning about famous neurodiverse people particularly exciting. Some of our pupils shared their experiences of being neurodiverse or the experiences of their close friends or family members. We loved hearing from parents, who told us that discussions in school had continued at home with very positive outcomes.
The week also saw applications open for a brand new, exciting opportunity for our pupils…to join the first of its kind, our Pupil Inclusion Team. This team will work with Mrs Silvanus to further develop inclusion for all and be the voice of inclusion within our school.
Following on from Neurodiversity Celebration Week, we have two upcoming visitors. They are coming to talk to us about the books they have written around the theme of inclusion, diversity and disabilities and their passion for making a difference to the way others view neurodiversity and disability.
If you would like to find out more about Neurodiversity Celebration Week, please visit their website:
We are excited to see what Mrs Silvanus and the Pupil Inclusion Team get up to! 
Thank you for your continuing support
Mr Bennett
Head Teacher
