Towards the end of the summer term, the Learning Support Department were joined by a number of Year 6 pupils who will be starting with us in the autumn term. They came to take part in our annual Moving On To High School sessions.
The M.O.T.H.S sessions are designed specifically for pupils with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities; they can also be helpful for pupils who struggle socially, or who find the prospect of High School a scary thought.
They have had three sessions which involved getting to know each other; practising social skills and most importantly, getting to know their way around school! The girls were supported by Mrs McGibbon the school’s SENDCO, Mrs Cattanach the Transition Manager and Mrs Aldred who’ll be supporting some of our Year 7 students when they arrive.
All the girls have found the sessions useful, and have made a super start to their Penwortham Girls’ High School journey. We look forward to seeing our new Year 7 students in September.
