Well done to all the children who took part in the sponsored bike ride this afternoon. We had well-over 100 children who cycled, scootered, ran and walked around Stepney Park. We were raising money for UNICEF for their work in Somalia. To sponsor us, visit our online fundraising page.

We are famous!

Photographers and a camera crew came down to Stepney Park this morning to take publicity shots for our sponsored bike ride taking place on Wednesday 28 September.

We are doing the bike ride to raise money for UNICEF's work in Somalia! We were joined by Charlie Simpson who raised almost £250,000 for UNICEF’s work in Haiti. Charlie gave lots of advice to our children about preparing for the bike ride.

You can see a report on BBC Newsround here.

Support group for parents/carers for children with autism

We had the first meeting of the Stepney Partnership support group for parents/carers of children with autism this morning at Redlands. Around 12 parents from across the partnership schools attended which was a great start!

At the meeting Richie and Dani from National Autistic Society and Catherine McNerney from Phoenix outreach team talked about their work. Parents shared their views on what they wanted from the support group.

The next meeting is on Friday 30 September (9:30-11am) at Halley Primary School where Andru Kyle from Disabled Children’s Outreach Service will lead a discussion about how parents cope when their child is diagnosed with autism.

On Friday 4 October we will visit a Mindbuilders’ Parent Session led by Sibylle Janert – a psychologist with 16 years experience of working with families, young children and autism.
