SEND - WHAT WE DO ...
  
The Pilgrim School covers the whole of Lincolnshire and provides educational   support for children and young people with complex medical and/or mental  health needs which prevent them from attending school full time.  
  
All staff are appropriately trained and employ a broad range of skills and   engagement techniques to help children and young people recognise and   celebrate their strengths, overcome their difficulties, cope with their   medical/mental health condition, and re-engage with life-long learning.

                                                                  

We also work closely with multi-agency colleagues from Health, CAMHS and other teams within the County.

All pupils receive a personalised curriculum, and have an individual personal plan to support their learning and medical/mental health needs and individual interventions are planned and mentored by the SENDCo on a regular basis.

Where appropriate an application for an Education Health and Care Plan can be made in conjunction with Parents and professional agencies and is considered by at panel by the Local Authority. Annual review of the Education Health and Care Plans are held within an academic year with parents/carers and pupils and staff to review the EHCP and plan ahead.

The general consensus from overheard chat from the pupils is that they have been well prepared and have given the exams a good shot. The pupils can feel proud and validated by what they have done. They have been helped to achieve this by having had strong teaching and strong support.

Opening Ceremony - Amber Hill

The opening ceremony for Amber Hill held on the 5th April was a fantastic success. We have received very positive feedback from the guests who attended. One of the project managers for LCC wrote in an email:

I just wanted to pass on my thanks to the team for the hugely successful official opening day last week.  The students and staff seem very at home in their new location and it was good to see the school being well used.

Thank you for inviting me to the event, I enjoyed seeing the facility being used so well considering from where it all began – could you also pass on my thanks to the Head Teacher, Chair of Governors, governors, staff and pupils – they deservedly must be very proud of how far the Pilgrim School has come.

Celebrating Success - Children of Courage Awards

The Sleaford Rotarian Children of Courage Awards for 2019 were held on Tuesday 19th March 2019 in the North Kesteven District Council Offices and 2 of The Pilgrim School pupils were nominated to receive awards.  These awards are given to children who have demonstrated positive attitudes under great adversity and who have gone above and beyond.  Jemma Whiteside and Brandon Edwards both received awards for their resilience and positive attitudes to overcome their individual adversities, alongside 5 other pupils from local mainstream schools and the evening was a great success.  NB provided the audience with an update of The Pilgrim School and the school received a lot of support and plaudits from various dignitaries who attended the event.

Mental health Splatter Days!

The mental health splatter days have gone very well indeed. Pupils and staff alike were inspired by the stories of courage, determination and resilience that were told by BLESMA and Amy Winehouse survivors. A big thank you to NB for organising this.
