Head's Letter - 01/05/2021

Dear Families,

This week has been another amazing week at Bader Academy and we have had a truly fun filled week. We are really pleased to see our pupils’ hard work pay off in setting up the chicken coop in our outdoor area. This week we have welcomed our feathered friends on site and are pleased to announce the arrival of our chickens! The children have been amazing, collecting eggs which have been laid this week and caring for the chickens. We have been working as a community to choose the names we will give them. The potential names were all given by pupils and these have now been drawn! We welcome Richard, Tilly, and Penny to the team!

Linking to our “Growing Together” project, the lower school staff and pupils have been working really hard and have contacted local supermarkets for donations. We have been really lucky that Asda have very kindly donated a selection of gardening equipment and a selection of seeds, which we can't wait to plant. It is so amazing and we collected them this week! We are very lucky.

Sun cream and warm weather

Just a reminder for you, our young people really enjoy spending time outdoors and this links directly to our topics in school. As the weather is now getting warmer, could we please ask that you send your child to school with a sunhat and a water bottle so they can access a drink throughout the day.

Please also send sun cream in for your child so that this can be applied during pupils’ outdoor time. The sun cream needs to be clearly labelled with your child’s name and we will keep this in school and send home at the end of the summer term. Please note we will only be able to allow your child to use the sun cream which is provided from home.

Unit Award Scheme Achievements

We are really proud to say that many of our upper school pupils have been working hard to gain awards linked to our unit award scheme and have been very successful. Pupils have been working towards gaining certificates in many different areas. Karl and I were very proud to present some pupils with their certificates in areas including car park safety, knowing the risks of knife crime, the risks associated with absconding and dealing with bullying to name a few! Upper school are continuing to work to a number of different units to gain their awards and we look forward to seeing their achievements this term. There are a few photographs below! Well done to everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. Please do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything you wish to discuss further, either via telephone or email and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend and will look forward to seeing all pupils on Tuesday 4th May.

Kind Regards,
