Bristol South MP Karin Smyth officially opened a new school building for Post-16 students at New Fosseway School.
“It was terrific to be able to join students, staff, parents and governors on this special occasion and to look around the new vocational centre,” she said. “There was tremendous enthusiasm, pride and excitement about the opportunity to use this new school building.”
Students served homemade cakes and drinks and parents were given a tour of the building, where activities and workshops took place during the day. The centre serves students aged 16-19 and has a strong emphasis on life skills leading to independent living and employability.
New Fosseway School serves students who have a wide variety of needs, associated with Severe Learning Difficulties. Many have autism and some very sensory requirements. It provides the small, specialist learning environment which meets not only their education but also medical, social and care needs.
