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.

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

Castle View School has a large number of students who are currently on the SEN Register - around 28% of its students on role. Many students experience difficulty with literacy and numeracy skills which makes it difficult for them to access the curriculum. In- class support is allocated to students to assist with their reading and comprehension skills. Students are sometimes withdrawn to work in small groups on the work being covered within the class to help consolidate the concepts being covered. Students are then returned to the class to build upon their subject knowledge and develop their skills. Those students who experience severe literacy skills are taught for several periods a week in a small group situation where intensive help is given with phonic and word building skills. Particular focus is given to develop confidence and raise self esteem and confidence with these students. Corrective Reading is taught to non-readers and those with exceptionally weak literacy skills. A Morning Reading Club is also available for less able readers where Year 10 pupils act as mentors and encourage reading skills. The Learning Support Department offers a wide range of help and support to all students within the school. Support staff have developed excellent working relationships with students of all ages and offer help and advice to students throughout their school career. Staff within the department offer a wide range of lunchtime activities to encourage student participation and development of confidence and self esteem.
