It has been great to meet our new pupils with their parents and carers over the last couple of weeks. We have some ,more transition visits and activities planned, to give everyone a chance to get to know each other before the new school year starts. Our teachers are busy preparing their temporary classrooms at Trust schools. We are still on track to move into our new building from Monday 3rd October.

We have just passed two important milestones having had a pre-opening ofsted inspection and the DfE's readiness to open monitoring meeting. 



Parent/carer information sessions for new Summerdown pupils will start on 14th June and feature a cream tea! The first meeting will include an opportunity to meet staff, as well as showing off our new Summerdown uniform, modelled below;

I was really pleased to see how much work has been completed on our new school and to. For the first time I was able to walk through the entire building, including the first floor, visit each classroom and see the entire project take shape. It will be a fantastic provision and it is a real privilege to have been part of the initial design.  ​Penny Kershaw, Principle Designate.
