For trying really hard at dinnertime to try lots of new foods. At the beginning of the year, Francesca would only eat sausages, meatballs and mashed potato in school.

Francesca is now independently selecting her meal choice from the menu options and is eating it all with minimal support most days.
Gail Stinton Cup (Upper School)
Excellence at lunchtime awarded to
Chloe has made fantastic progress at dinnertime. Chloe has always been reluctant to eat a meal and at the start of the year was just beginning to touch food to her lips. However, she has been able to try many different foods and is now having a full meal every day. She loves to tell everyone that she has eaten everything and often asks for more.
Eric Hemming (Lower School)
Effort in movement awarded to
Louie has made fantastic progress in his physical abilities this year. He tolerates the use of his mobility aids well and without frustration. This year Louie has progressed from beginning to crawl to crawling long distances, moving independently to request certain favoured activities and he is now using classroom furniture to pull himself up to standing. Louie has made good progress in physio swim sessions. Due to Louie’s progress this year, his range of movement has increased which has meant he has not had to have his recent Botox injections.
Kayleigh Cup (Lower School)
Excellence in Creativity awarded to
Darragh has progressed in his sensory touch and will explore messy materials with his hands for extended periods, producing some nice artwork.
In music, Darragh is always very focused and shows lots of enjoyment through laughing and smiling.

Overall Effort awarded to
Lauren tries her best in everything she does.
She will now wear her glasses and hearing aids all day and not just for a timer. Lauren has also had a new wheelchair and stander and has adapted fantastically to both. Her new equipment allows her to be more independent and she can travel around without support. During swimming, Lauren has challenged herself by removing her swimming aids and taking steps without support.
Lauren has also found her voice this year and will join in with tasks/songs/activities verbally. She will seek attention from anyone around by saying their name.
