Jack Petchey Winners Spring 2018

Kerry has made amazing progress this year. Last year Kerry found transition extremely difficult, however this year she will get on and off her bus, travel around school with a motivator and has left the school to attend the cinema and the gym.

Previously Kerry was only able to concentrate for small periods of time but now she will work for up to 20 minutes with adult support and is beginning to copy basic signs including waving to friends and signing thank you.

Some of the comments made by other staff, include: 'It's wonderful to see Kerry joining us for assembly', 'she is like a different child this year', 'She is so happy'.
