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.

Special Education Needs
Support for Learning at Wellington School At the heart of Wellington School operates a cycle of planning, teaching and assessment, which takes into account the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of all our pupils. Many students have a form of special need at some point in their school careers. These needs may be met by extra help with reading, writing, numeracy, or by special support for sensory, communication, physical, emotional or behavioural difficulties. At Wellington School we have a Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator and a team of Classroom Assistants who aim to provide specialised help to both pupils and subject teachers. How is learning support offered? Learning support for the least able takes the form of work in small groups, concentrating especially on the basics of numeracy and literacy. Certain pupils may be withdrawn from some mainstream lessons for a time, to help them with a general or specific difficulty by providing additional help. A partnership with parents. The pupils themselves are fully involved in all stages of decision making, the setting of goals and targets, assessment, and the review of their progress. However, we recognise that parents also play a vital part in a child's education, and that learning does not just take place in school. Therefore we encourage parents to offer their own special support with homework and with practicing skills and exercises. Parents can often provide essential highlights and information about the difficulties their child may be experiencing and we are dedicated to building an effective relationship based on good communication and shared responsibility. Partnerships with others We share responsibility for the provision of learning support with the Local Educational Authority. Wellington School has regular access to the services of an Educational Psychologist who comes into school to help monitor progress, provide assessment, offer advice, and who supports the school, the parents and the pupils. Wellington School is acknowledged as a caring, secure environment, with a very strong pastoral system, and with a committed and dedicated staff. We also have access to the services of outside agencies including the Authority's Learning Support Service, Sensory Impairment Support Service, Special Support Service, Behaviour Support Service and medical help through the School Nurse.
