My colleague Michelle Wilman, Principal at the West SILC (Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre) sent me this bit of brilliant news...

"Dear Chris, I am delighted to share our news: TES Schools Awards Shortlist Outstanding Special Needs Initiative of the Year. We are one of 5 schools short listed for this category - we will find out on June 9th if we win!
The Project: a focus on individualised learning pathways for children with the most complex and multiple learning needs has helped to develop improved interactions and functional skills previously not believed possible. A social inclusion model where children interact with their mainstream peers has developed a circle of friends for every child.

It is fantastic recognition not just of the hard work of Sarah and her team at the West SILC / Hollybush partnership, but also all the members of the complex and multiple learning needs team from all the SILCs. Michelle."

We are fortunate in Leeds to have colleagues like Michelle, Sarah and the team releasing their very special magic with some of our most vulnerable and special children.
