It’s been a wonderful week!
It started with a brilliant letter from a number of our Bridging the Gap students who are based at the Royal Oldham Hospital asking me to write to the Queen to propose OBEs for the staff who support them on the project. Their letter stated that the staff often go over and above to ensure the students get the most from their placements, and went on to say that I should ask the Queen to invite Alison and Amanda for a cup of tea!
Later in the week I took a group of staff from Bury to observe the Bridging the Gap project first hand. I have to agree that our staff really are amazing and often work at significant arms-length from the rest of our organisation. Maybe we should look at a way of celebrating not just Alison and Amanda but also the many, many staff who give over and above.
I was delighted to read Matthew’s quote in his Head Boy’s blog on Monday about our school:
“I would not swap it for any school in the world. The banter with friends and teachers and the pleasant atmosphere around the corridors make it one of the nicest schools I have ever been inside.”
We are always striving to ensure all our young people are encouraged to be independent individuals who can participate and contribute to our local communities. This was exemplified in the way a number of our young people were involved in the appointment of new teachers for Hollinwood Academy and New Bridge School this week. Following the assessment process, the mature discussion I had with these young people gave me an understanding of the independent thinking and the ability to offer clear opinions that is alive and kicking here at New Bridge.
I know that our heads of site are exploring different ways to work alongside our families and parents. Can I remind you all that if any of you, for whatever reason, need any support, want advice or have an issue with any aspect of our work you can contact me directly. I will always prioritise meetings with you to talk, advise and resolve any problems.
Please can I take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support.
Have a great weekend,
