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.
Special Education Needs
We deliver to a number of students exhibiting a range of Additional Needs. A specialist Curriculum Support Team is deployed to work along side individuals and cohorts of students who are identified as requiring intervention and it is school policy to allocate Teaching Assistants to faculties so that students can benefit from support in many curriculum areas. Our work with ADHD students is held up as a model of good practice by our LEA and we have recently been successful with a DfES bid to pilot a project on Emotional Literacy. We have developed a comprehensive and thorough training programme for staff so that they feel confident in dealing with the demands of the Code of Practice. We maximise every opportunity to raise awareness of inclusive practices in the local community and liaise with external agencies to secure appropriate provision. Our Faculty mission statement 'It's not about how good you are, it's about how good you want to be' underpins our positive approach to inclusion and a belief that we can really make a difference to young people's futures. In 2005 we were successful in achieving a Leading Aspect Award which celebrated our inclusive practices with ADHD students. We also were in receipt of a NorthWest Merseyside Regional Partnership Inclusion Award which focused on the outcomes of a questionnaire ' What students at Park High have to say about Inclusion.'
