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
Newsome has 2 resourced provisions within the mainstream school. We have the Kirklees Resourced Provision for pupils with hearing impairments and also the Resourced Provision for pupils with physical disabilities. All these pupils are fully included within the school. Hearing Impaired pupils are taught along side their peers, benefiting from teachers of the deaf and educational communicators. They also have some 'base time' to allow them to consolidate learning from other subjects. Newsome also caters for other pupils with SEN. In total we have approximately 70 statemented pupils. At the last Ofsted (January '05), the overall provision for all pupils with SEN was rated as very good. All pupils are taught in mainstream classes for the majority of lessons with work being differentiated to meet their needs. We have a large team of committed, experienced support assistants who assist pupils in lesson and also extra- curricular activities.
