Autism Awareness Month

Each April is Autism Awareness Month.  At Roding Primary School we have shared a range of stories, videos and held assemblies to raise awareness of autism and celebrate the many people who have diverse needs across all ages.  It is really important for us as a school that our children recognise and feel empowered to be part of a neurodiverse community.

On Friday 19th April 2024, we wore our brightest clothes to fit in with the theme of Our Colour Spectrum Day.  It was a great day, and we will continue to celebrate and understand neurodiversity throughout everything that we do at Roding Primary School.

Visit from BMX Champion Mike Mullen

We were really excited to have a visit from the BMX Champion Mike Mullen. Mike held a special assembly with our Key Stage 2 children in which he showed them some of his amazing BMX tricks as well as talking to the children about having a growth mindset in order to overcome any obstacles or difficulties in life.

Mike then worked with some of our year 5 children to teach them different stunts and tricks. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the day and were very inspired by Mike’s message.
