Lavender Walk Students' RSPCA Fundraiser

Can you help the students of Lavender Walk make a difference? They have decided to adopt the RSPCA as their chosen charity and help raise money to support the work that it does. The RSPCA is the leading UK animal welfare charity. They work to prevent harm and cruelty to animals. They also rescue, rehabilitate and rehomes animals in need. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much. Every donation, large or small, helps.

Marbling and Music

Students at Lavender Walk have been taking part in a Marbling and Music workshop with artist Chloe Cooper and musician Jackie Walduck. Take at look at what they've been creating. We hope to post some of their musical compositions next week.

Thank you Dr Max Denning, Chair of Governors


We are all sorry to say farewell to Dr Max Denning who is stepping down as Chair of Governors. Max has been a huge support to us and we would like to thank him for his tireless work for our school. David Mytton will now be the interim chair, and Ben Marshall will assume the vice-chair role. See below for a message from Max, and we wish him all the very best for the future.

Teaching Online From Home

Our teachers continue to work with some of our most vulnerable young people. Sometimes this means working from home. Here we have our principal, Janette, with her two assistants and John, our geography, computing and IT teacher.

Goodbye To Eva

Eva 2
Eva Leung came to work with us, at Lavender Walk, as a learning assistant on Thursday 19th March and finished on Friday 3rd April. This is probably one of the shorted stays that anyone has ever had with us, however in those short weeks Eva made the biggest impression. Eva came at a time when schools were closing, transport reducing, and society going into lockdown – in short the most challenging of times. This did not deter Eva, she got fully ‘stuck in’ to supporting the young people and their learning on the unit. She was a tremendous help to her teaching colleagues and just great to work with. Eva you made such a huge impression on everyone and we want to thank you for your commitment from Day 1. We wish you every success in your new job, they are so lucky to have you! 
Good luck and thank you!

Thank you teachers!

Our teachers are continuing to work with some of our most vulnerable children. Here we have Robin at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Helen and Marius at The Portland Hospital.

A message from Janette Steel, our Principal

At this time of year we would usually be celebrating spring through our Easter service, with children singing, reading poetry, and sharing their art work, this always brings a joy to our hearts, there is a sense of growth and refreshment. However, now we are all in a different place, some of us quite alone, missing our wider families and concerned about the future. A lonely and worrying time for us all, I want to assure you that we will be with you to share any concerns you have about your child's education, their next step in their journey to college, and to support them in assessing their levels for their exams.

Art Takeover

Over the next few weeks we will be filling our social media with art created by children in hospital.

World Book Day Celebrations

DSCF0822 3

We celebrated World Book Day by searching for Paddington Bear in deepest, darkest Peru. At Chelsea, star of the show was primary pupil Sienna - dressed in a wonderful homemade costume as Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree. Staff love to dress up too - Jags as Harry Potter, Charlotte as the clockwork clown from Amelia Jane, Deirdre as the bunny from Amelia Jane and Jonny as a character from a pupil, Lauren's, own story "The Possessed Teacher". Children also designed some Roald Dahl character masks and made Roald Dahl themed pottery, as Roald Dahl is our theme for the term.
