Students in the Weather Station Project, Sandringham School
The students nominated have worked collaboratively for over six months on an independent project initiated and led by the students themselves. Each of the team members brought a different skill to the project to build a fully functional weather station. The skills developed included programming, recording data, analysing data, website building and of course installing and maintaining the weather station itself.
This project was made using a Raspberry Pi 4, installed on the school’s site. It is recording a multitude of readings about the current weather, which are then stored and further processed on our server, before being accessed here.

I am an exceptional leader and organiser because I inspire and encourage others.
Kyle is a kind, thoughtful, mature and helpful young man. Despite his speech impediment, he challenges himself daily to communicate with all members of the school community. He is able to use his own initiative to complete tasks without being asked and he is popular amongst all pupils, especially when completing his ‘buddy’ work with the reception children. He has climbed several mountains and walked marathons as part of our school annual ‘Challenge’ all the while championing and supporting his fellow peers. He has also just completed a highly successful week’s work experience placement before he goes on to complete a supported internship when he leaves 6th form.

Eli, Year 6, Sherbourne Fields
I am good at communicating
Eli is independently using his Ipad to communicate his wants and needs with both familiar and unfamiliar people. He will use his Ipad to inform people of his emotions, what day of the week it is, what he wants to eat, to request help with something and to inform an adult he needs to go to the toilet. The ability to communicate his wants and needs has reduced Eli’s levels of anxiety and has helped tremendously to regulate his behaviour. He no longer runs out of the classroom if he wants the toilet or gets frustrated with himself if he can not do something he simply uses his Ipad to communicate to staff what it is he wants which allows them to support Eli with ease.
Aisha K, Sherbourne Fields
Aisha is commended for the whole “I am” area
Bradley H, Year 4, Sherbourne Fields
I am good at coping with change.
Bradley has coped well with lots of exciting changes this academic year. He has been practising moving around using his new electric chair which has significantly helped to develop his independence and social skills. Bradley has also adapted to beginning to use an Eye Gaze device to communicate his wants and needs as well as to contribute his ideas during lesson time. Bradley has persevered with navigating his Eye Gaze and has shown great progress in using it to communicate intentionally. This has been an exciting development for Bradley as it allows him to choose from a greater vocabulary when communicating with his staff and peers both socially and during discussions in lessons. Bradley has been very willing to try new things and to overcome any challenges that may arise from them.
