This week we have all enjoyed a visit from Santa, and our primary school Christmas Lunch.

Photos from Ifield School's post 14/12/2023

With only two days of left of school, Buddy spent last night exploring, pupils are going to try and guess the locations he visited.


The Harvester, Gravesend are now taking bookings for a superhero breakfast with santa.
We will be closed to the greater public on 20th December to dedicate the opportunity for SEN children to enjoy visiting santa in a low stimuli environment, adapting where possible to the individual needs of children who may otherwise be overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of other busy santa trips.

£9.99 per child, this includes a breakfast, fruit shoot, chocolate treat, and a goodie bag to take home with you.

If there is anything that we can do to adapt to your childrens needs then do not hesitate to ask as we aim to make this experience as fun and stress free as possible.
e.g. santa can come to the table if children are not comfortable walking up to him themselves, we can turn off flashing lights, and carry out other requests if possible.

This date will not be available to book online, the restaurant will need to be called to arrange a booking for you.

For further information or queries you can call the harvester restaurant on

🎄💩Christmas holidays can be a great time to do a DISIMPACTION with your little one, with time off work and school. Disimpaction will clear any constipation so they can start 2024 with a healthy, happy bowel - making you happier too!💩🎄

If you've consulted a doctor or nurse and been advised to undertake a disimpaction for your child, then we have lots of resources on our website to help you - find the links in the comments.

You can also sign up for our free 'Talking about disimpaction' webinar for parents/carers on 7th December 7pm-8.15pm - ❗the closing date to register is 12pm on 6th December❗(link to book in the comments).

Today Amethyst Class had the pleasure of bumping in to Ingrid Biscombe and Ann Mellor at Millbrook Garden Centre. Ingrid and Ann were so delighted to see the students, many of whom they knew several years ago when they were teaching, they treated the whole class to a cake each from the Café. Thankyou Ingrid and Ann for this generous gesture and Merry Christmas x
