Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

At Waldegrave we believe pupils with special educational needs should be offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant education, including appropriate access to the National Curriculum. The ethos of our school supports the aims of the Disability Discrimination Act. The school has an accessibility plan. Although the site is not yet fully accessible to all pupils with physical disabilities, we are making improvements as funding permits. All teachers in the school share the responsibility for identifying and responding to the special educational needs of all pupils. All teachers are teachers of pupils with special educational needs. A variety of methods is employed to meet the wide range of pupils needs: modification of materials, provision of individualised structured programmes and the use of a range of teaching methods as well as differing degrees of support. Use is made of the Learning Resources Centre and flexible learning methods. 10-09
