Queensmill students spend time working with Flute Theatre

Before the Easter break, pupils spent a week working alongside Flute Theatre as they rehearsed their production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Through sensory games, students encountered Shakespeare's poetic exploration of how it feels to be alive, focusing on how people see, think and feel.  Flute went on to perform their show at the Bridge Theatre the following week.  Groups of students travelled to London Bridge to perform alongside the company in this large, professional theatre.  They performed confidently, creatively and passionately in front of a very large audience!

Queensmill National Autistic Society (NAS) Moderation completed successfully

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Firstly thank you so much for taking the time to complete and return the national autistic society questionnaires we sent you. Our moderation has finished and I am extremely pleased to tell you that the reviewers were thoroughly impressed with our autism practice throughout the school.

In previous moderations we have achieved the highest category they are able to award and this time is no different. We have published a summary document for your information 'for this please click on the link below' however the full written report will be available from them in approximately 8 weeks. You will note that they have only factored in a tiny sample of the questionnaires you sent but in the final report, the full set will be considered. 

 

Thank You 

Freddie Adu - Head Teacher
