Welcome Message From the Headteacher

The governors, staff and I are delighted to introduce you to the work of our school.

The Pilgrim School is a Community Special School (Hospital School). We act on behalf of Lincolnshire County Council to fulfil their duties under Section 19 of the 1996 Education Act.  This means that our school provides education for pupils who are not in their mainstream school because of a decision made by a medical practitioner.

We passionately believe that a child’s history is not their destiny; that a person’s current circumstance does not dictate their future. As a school we actively plan for and promote a child’s resilience and post traumatic growth – remembering that success in school is a powerful resilience factor in itself. 

The school prides itself on its ability to personalise learning and support so that pupils make rapid progress, especially in English, Maths and Science (including IT) and in their emotional well – being, as well as a wide range of other subjecs.

 We teach and support pupils so that they are able to make a successful reintegration back into their mainstream school or to their next phase of learning.
As a hospital school we are not a school of choice; parents cannot apply for their child to come here. The decision of need rests with a medical practitioner but referrals are either sent in by a pupil’s school or through the county education out of schools team. 
I hope that you find the website informative and interesting as it begins to describe the complex, but rewarding work the school does.

RAF Coningsby Visit

The Pilgrim School visit to RAF Coningsby

A number of pupils and staff visited RAF Coningsby on 10th March 2017 and were given a tour of The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, 3(Fighter) Squadron and the Typhoon Engine Bay.  The visit was very informative and provided the pupils with a closer look at military aircraft flown during the Second World War and today.  The pupils enjoyed a close up look at the Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota aircraft which was followed by a tour of the modern Typhoon aircraft and engines.  The school are very grateful to staff at RAF Coningsby for arranging this first class school trip.

Celebrating Success: Fit for Learning

New initiative, Lincoln base:

In recent weeks we have started a new venture in the Lincoln base. This was the idea a learning mentor there. She writes:

Figures show that fewer children walk to school nowadays than a generation ago. After speaking to the majority of pupils at Lincoln – most do not take part in any exercise or get fresh air (including walking) out of school. To combat this each morning we take the pupils out for a walk around Hartsholme’s school field.

Quote of the week:

“Every day may not be good but there is something good in everyday”

Even though we are entering into the summer months, weather can still be unpredictable.  Information will be available via sites/station noted below.
