We were delighted for Apple Class, that a panel of judges from across the BBC’s South West Teams were impressed with their story idea focussing on our new build.
They were chosen as one of the BBC Young Reporter Competition 2022’s regional winners!
Recently the clip appeared on Newsround.
Well done to all those in Apple Class!
On Friday the 30th of September 2022 pupils from across Silverwood School took part in the Silverwood Journey, a sponsored journey to try and accumulatively complete the distance between the 3 main campuses (60km!!!).
The pupils were involved in several different ways. Rowde campus took part in a mini tough mudder/colour run to cover the distance, some pupils from Chippenham and Trowbridge also joined in at the Rowde Campus. Pupils from Trowbridge and Chippenham campuses covered the distance by doing obstacle courses in the playgrounds and the halls. It was also great to see some parents join in with some of the early years’ classes. Some classes even covered part of the distance by walking to local parks from their campus.
The pupils truly showed our Schools Values through Perseverance, Cooperation, Kindness and Courage. It was an amazing day and the pupils enjoyed taking part in something that took place across the whole of Silverwood School.
Thank you to all those who helped sponsor the pupils. Currently, we have managed to raise over £600 towards the RNIB and Silverwood Charity Trust.
On Tuesday 10th May 2022, two members of the student council were asked to be part of the, Meet and Great Team, by Gerri Kemp, a SEND consultant at County Hall.
Sam was asked to stand on the main entrance to support visitors to the ECHP workshop to located the room where the meeting was taking place.
Ana-Maria, helped Emma to register the adults and support Emma to create name labels to wear.
Both students were great ambassadors for Silverwood School, Trowbridge Campus.

Welcome to the latest edition of our Special Schools Development Newsletter.
Since our last update work has continued in close partnership with schools and local communities, to ensure we have sufficient special places across the county for our children and young people to access a high-quality education closer to home.
Activity at the Silverwood Rowde campus in the north of the county is moving into an exciting new phase, as work begins to prepare the site for the construction of the new classroom block that will bring capacity up to 350 places in the 2023/24 academic year.
Meanwhile, in the south a significant landmark has been reached with the confirmation of the former University Technical College in Salisbury as the chosen site for the new special free school (subject to planning permission), and the appointment of a lead contractor to take forward the design and redevelopment of the site.
We will send these newsletters out regularly, to keep you posted on developments. We hope you find them helpful and informative and if you have any feedback about what you would like included in them, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
