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
At Nailsea School students are identified as having Special Educational Needs through information supplied by our primary partner schools, data from CATS tests on entry to school and open referral by teacher, student or parent. Once identified students are supported in-class by a team of 8 Teaching Assistants and through withdrawal work in tutorials. Tutorials are taken by one of our team of 5 teachers. Students are mostly in pairs or some receive individual support. These are high quality and focused on the students specific needs. IEPs are issued to all staff to inform them of their specific difficulties. Tutorials are weekly and SEN students are taught in class with their peers for the remainder of the week. At Key Stage 4 students follow the ASDAN programme of study and there is a link course with Weston College to provide a more appropriate curriculum. We also offer a centre called the Small School to support students with emotional and behavioural difficulties support and provides social skills work and counselling support for students in temporary crisis. The emphasis at Nailsea is very much on individual needs being met.
