Action required to initiate referral:

The Local Authority will now assess the request for `Education Support on (Medical Grounds)` against their criteria and will decide what ones to forward to the Pilgrim School. We shall investigate each case further and consider whether tailored provision can be offered.

If a school is concerned about a pupil: -

  • with potentially long-term sickness
  • who is unable to attend school because of anxiety or other mental health difficulties
  • who is having recurrent bouts of chronic illness leading to cumulative lengthy periods of absence (in which case advice and coping strategies may be offered)

and the school can demonstrate that it has taken all possible steps to address or respond to the situation but without success, then the school should complete the form provided for download, copies of which have been sent to all Lincolnshire schools.

The form available to download here:

Request for Educational Support on Medical Grounds (ES.Med)

An Individual Healthcare Plan is required to be completed as part of the Referral process and can be downloaded here:

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.

World Book day!

Staff and students at all three bases celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.

There was a quiz and some funny shenanigans with book jackets as students selected book titles that reflected something about their personality.

This photograph demonstrates how this was done in the ASD centre. Fabulous!

Thank you to all staff who encouraged participation. There will be some photographs on display around school soon.

 

Comic Relief

Well done to the Lincoln base who raised £39 from a cake sale for Comic Relief. They also had a joke competition and our pupil DT won best joke, and our staff member SLwon worst joke. Big thanks to JD for organising this.

Pilgrim Sweatshirts!

Sweatshirts

The new Pilgrim sweatshirts have gone down a storm and been more popular than we could have imagined. It’s great that so many of our pupils (and indeed staff!) want to identify with our school community in this way. The pop up shop is open again until 10th April and orders can be made by following this link:

Football - Lincoln City Football Club Day

Six pupils from Lincoln and Amber Hill bases visited Lincoln City Football Club to play football on the afternoon of 6th March 2019.  They played with other pupils from YPLP in an 11 aside match.  All the pupils really got stuck in to the game and demonstrated some real skills.
