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.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

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

Support for pupils with additional or different needs is provided by the Support Team which includes Learning, Language and Behaviour support and is strategically managed by the Pupil Support Manager who is an Assistant Headteacher. Within the Support Team, Learning Support is co-ordinated by the Learning Support Co-ordinator. The Learning Support Department consists of two part-time (0.5) teachers and eight Teaching Assistants. The Behaviour Support Department is co-ordinated by the Behaviour Support Co-ordinator who works with two full-time Teaching Assistants. For the most part, support for pupils with Special Educational Needs, both learning and behaviour, takes place within mainstream lessons, although both departments benefit from their own dedicated classroom for withdrawal purposes where specialist programmes can be delivered. The school is committed to the employment of Higher Level Teaching Assistants.
