At the Beech Academy, each week all of the pupils who attend school every day go in to the draw for enrichment time the following week. On a Friday afternoon, one member of staff chooses from the extensive list of full attenders and their name is celebrated in the achievement assembly with all the pupils and staff. This week’s winner was Mark and he decided he wanted to take Mr Palethorpe to Matalan to have a look at some of the items he would like to buy for his holidays. He had a fantastic time and was happy to pose for some photos to show everyone how much he enjoyed it.
Our attendance as an Academy this year is over 1% higher than the same point and nearly 4% higher than the national average for Special Schools which is a great achievement for the pupils.
