In School, Out of School and Beyond

At Perseid School, we believe that every pupil, whatever their needs, has the right to participate in their community and to have choices, opportunities and experiences important for all children. We have an active School Council which supports our pupils to participate actively in decisions about our school.

We are committed to ensuring that our pupils have every opportunity to take part in the wider community, and so we take part in a wide range of community activities, both as part of the school day and beyond. We strongly support the partnership between parents and school, believing that this is vital to achieving the best outcomes for pupils. We are passionate about involving families in their child’s education and in the life of the school.

We encourage parents to be fully involved in school through our home/school diary system, half termly newsletters, school website, individual parent/teacher conferencing, the Annual Review and parent workshops, as well as special performances and events. Building good partnerships is important to us and we encourage parents to contact us if there is anything they would like to discuss.

We are privileged to be a diverse school and are proud of the strong links we have forged with the community. We work with local businesses, faith groups, charities and support organisations. We have strong partnerships with local and international state and independent high achieving schools, including our international partner school Genesis Academy, Jamaica. These links serve to increase and enrich opportunities for us all.

We understand our responsibility as an outstanding school to ensure that best practice is shared.

Perseid is the lead school in the Merton Special Teaching Alliance, a National Teaching School which follows a national remit to provide support to improve the life chances of learners with special educational needs.

We have also developed strong partnerships with local high-achieving schools, both state and independent, in order to increase and enrich the opportunities for our pupils.
