Cognus Limited have now released the dates for their speech and language, and occupational therapy free parent training sessions for this academic year.

The dates and topics are as follows:

  • 7/11/18 - 3.45-4.45pm – basic speech and language identification
  • 7/03/19 - 3.45-4.45pm – strategies for dyslexia
  • 26/06/19 - 4-5pm – occupational therapy and sensory awareness

These sessiions will all take place in the GF – Creative room, Cognus Ltd, 24, Denmark Road, Carshalton, SM5 2JG.

There is no sign up or registration, but parents may simply turn up to the front reception on the day where they will be greeted and asked to sign in to attend the training. These are not only informative opportunities for all interested Sutton parents, but a rich opportunity for parents to have time with a therapist in the borough and to ask questions freely that are pertinent to their child’s development.

Mrs Harrison, our new assistant headteacher, and Mrs Green, our family support worker, will be running workshops for parents/carers during the year. There will be one each term (15th November, 16th January and 3rd July) all taking place at 2pm in the school hall. They will be ideal opportunities for the school and parents/carers to work together to provide the best possible outcomes for the children. More details will be sent to parents/carers nearer the time but for the moment, put the dates in your diary.

Good news! We have been awarded the silver games mark for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive sport in 2017/18. This is an important recognition of the work that we do in school, providing children with a range of physical activities and of course the introduction of our ‘Active for 15’ initiative which will continue this year. Thank you to Miss Newton, our PE leader, who co-ordinated our work towards this award. We will of course be aiming for the gold mark now!

The parent/carer’s questionnaire will be sent home in the next couple of weeks. It is very important that we take feedback from each part of the Devonshire community as to what they feel is going well and what they feel could be further developed. This year, based on feedback from the parents we have:The parent/carer’s questionnaire will be sent home in the next couple of weeks. It is very important that we take feedback from each part of the Devonshire community as to what they feel is going well and what they feel could be further developed. This year, based on feedback from the parents we have: Increased the number of performances and meetings so that families have a greater choice as to which one they come to Changed the format of parents’ evening Changed the timings of the KS2 sports day Increased the number of clubs available for our younger children Shared your concerns about traffic in Devonshire Avenue with other parents via the newsletter.All of these suggestions have had a positive impact on life at Devonshire and show the value of us all working together.

Last Friday evening 20 swimmers represented Devonshire at the borough school’s swimming gala. Children from Year 4 upwards competed against 8 other schools. The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school and we were all very proud of them and their tremendous efforts. A special mention must go to our girl’s medley relay team (Hayley, Nicole and Iniyaa) who won a bronze medal, Hayley who won a bronze medal in the girl’s butterfly race, to the Year 6 who competed having just come back from their residential trip and to the Year 5 boys who filled any gaps we had in our Year 6 team. Thanks to Miss Newton, the team manager and to Mr Wells, Mrs Scrivens, Miss Dourado and Miss Byfield who were all poolside with the children at the gala. Also, thank you to the parent supporters.Last Friday evening 20 swimmers represented Devonshire at the borough school’s swimming gala. Children from Year 4 upwards competed against 8 other schools.

Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who accompany our swimming trip each week. Without you, we would struggle to give the children the swimming opportunities that they currently have.
