Lord’s Taverners Visit our New Soft Play
Brid Hancock and our friends from the Lord’s Taverners visited us on Friday 1st May 2015 to see the lovely new soft play room at Lower School that they generously helped to fund. The new soft play room has been a massive hit, and the pupils at Lower School have enjoyed exploring this colourful and versatile space. The pictures below show Brid enjoying playing on the equipment with Ellis, Sebastian and Tina, and Tina with Brid, Mike and Sarah from Lord's Taverners.
Children and Families Bill
In December 2014 Merton Mencap was commissioned by the London Borough of Merton to carry out a consultation with SEN children and young people about the new Children and Families Bill. Merton Mencap came into film students at Perseid and across the borough. They have completed the consultation and sent it to Merton Council with the hope that the Council will act on the recommendations. Merton MENCAP will keep us updated regarding progress.
Please take a look at the full consultation results and the accessible summary results by clicking on the links below.

Upper School KS3 Art Work
During the spring term blue and red pathway KS3 pupils learnt about using a view finder during their Life Events unit of work in Art. Each pupil created a beautiful art work (paint on canvas). They each sectioned their canvas into five areas, over the second half term they chose a picture a week that they used for inspiration; they used a view finder to choose the specific area of the picture they were focussing on and painted their interpretation of it on one of the five sections. Six pieces were anonymously chosen and are now displayed in the reception area. The pupils are proud of their work and the art work has received many compliments from staff and visitors

Perseid School are thrilled to be working with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Merton Music Foundation on a special 18 month musical project. Students from the lower and upper schools are working together alongside professional orchestral players to create a piece of music for performance at the Royal Albert Hall in Spring 2015. The project includes regular workshops with the visiting musicians in which students have the opportunity to explore a range of stringed instruments, music technology and keyboard instruments. The project promises to be an exciting and engaging experience for all involved!
