7DP enjoyed exploring parts of Melton Mowbray for their ‘Local Area’ project which they are currently working on in Geography. The students enjoyed seeing the different parts of Melton which most have not had the opportunity to do. They were all excellent, very well done 7DP. See MoreSee Less

This month is ‘Global Pride Month’ the school will be involved in School Diversity Week; this annual week is all about empowering school pupils and staff across the UK to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying by organising activities that celebrate LGBT+ equality in education.

In 2020, schools and colleges representing 1.9 million young people signed up to take part in School Diversity Week, demonstrating to their pupils that being LGBTQ + is something to be celebrated.

On Monday 27th June, we will have our own Pride Day. All pupils will take part in age and stage appropriate activities and assemblies on the theme:

Celebrating Differences – Everyone Can Sparkle!

We would like to invite all members of our school community to celebrate this by wearing our brightest rainbow colours and anything that makes you sparkle.

If you would like to find out more or discuss our RSE/PSHE approach, please contact Julie Peattie, Subject lead for PSHE education at peattiej@birchwoodschool.co.uk.

“I am extremely happy with the progress my daughter is making – she has come on in leaps and bounds. I feel Birch Wood Vale is tailor made for her needs.”

“I am so happy with how my son has progressed in the school setting over a short period of time. A big ‘thank you’ for everyone’s help and especially for their exceptional support. I know that he will blossom throughout the school setting. Thanks again!”

“The primary school said under no circumstances could he go back after Christmas. Sending him to Birch Wood is the best thing I ever did, I couldn’t be more pleased. He is calmer, telling me about things he enjoys at school. Everybody has noticed such a big change in him, all of my family appreciate everything you are doing, it has changed our lives.”

“My son is really happy, he’s started playing again and back to the old child. Everything is really positive and he is much happier when he comes home. The unit has been really positive for him”

“I am happy with the new assessment and tracking system. My son seems very happy at school and appears to be making good progress. The teachers seemed very knowledgeable about my son’s abilities and when to push him. I would like to comment on his next IEP before it is finalised.”

“The provision has been outstanding in every way and the staff are brilliant with strategies to ensure progress is made in all areas of my son’s school life. We couldn’t ask for anything more!”

“I was very impressed with how positive ad enthusiastic all staff were tonight (as always). Especially impressed with all the efficient, colour coded information on my sons progress and it’s equivalent grade in GCSE.”
