We are back this week with our Friday Five but it seems our inbox has been flooded with new content! Here are the best of the best!
STAART is now a validated learning provider Children’s University a national charity that encourages and rewards children’s participation in learning activities beyond the classroom. If you are aware of any children (up to 14) who are taking part in any of the Children’s Universities, this activity equates to an hour of creativity and awarded with a stamp.
Next weekend: Aspens have made us aware of their virtual weekend of activities and workshops that they are organising on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July themed around transition tailored to parents, carers, siblings, children and young people with ASC, mental health difficulties and/or SEN.
We have been sent a couple of surveys which are for gathering the public voice. Why not give back and take a couple of moments to share your thoughts with them so we can help shape national policy.
