Welcome to Fiveways School

Welcome back to the second half of the Summer term. I do hope that you have have had a happy and relaxing break. It is lovely to see the all of the children back.

Building work Update (26.05.21)

It is very exciting to see the new buildings starting to take shape.  The roof is just being completed and the internal spaces look big, light and airy.  The builders will be working on the internal fit-out during the rest of the term, which will be completed to a very high standard.  We continue to work with the project manager and builders to make sure that we get the best outcomes for our children. The layout of the building and its surrounding playgrounds have had a few refinements, so I thought you would be interested to see the latest plans.

Dear Parents /Carers,

I am very pleased to announce that the Fiveways School Governing body have been successful in recruiting a new Headteacher.  Swavek Nowakiewicz, will officially start in this post on 1st September 2021, and I am looking forward to working with him to affect a smooth transition.  Swavek is a very experienced special school leader, who I know is looking forward to introducing himself to you all.


On another topic I wanted to let you know of the INSET days for the next academic year. Governors have also agreed to an additional moving day this year, as many of the classes will be relocating into the new classroom block. We are keen to ensure that our classes provide a high quality well organised learning environment. We are very aware of the impact of COVID on children and their parents so would want to keep this time down to just one day.

Moving day: 6th September 2021

INSET days for 2021-22 are 7th Sept, 8th Sept, 17th February, 18th February and 6th June.

As ever if you have any questions please do let me know. Thank you for your continued support – Mark Collis
