National Autism Awareness Week

National Autism Week

Just a reminder that this week (1-7 April) is National Autism Awareness Week.

National Autism Awareness week aims to celebrate all things Autism. Throughout the week all children and teachers in school will:

* learn about autism in fun, imaginative lessons, activities and assemblies that are level-specific.

* help spread the word about why it’s so important to understand and accept autism.

In support of Autism Awareness Week, the whole school will be doing a walk (or toddle) on Friday 5th April around the school grounds. We kindly ask that children bring a donation of 50p that will go to the Autism Society.

Members of school staff have also signed up to do the annual Walk for Autism around Herrington Country Park on Friday 12th April. If this is something you would be interested in taking part in please click on the links below for further information:
