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

Girls identified as requiring SEN provision are supported through the work of the Learning Support Team. The School has a very active Learning Support Department, with roughly 10% of the school population identified as requiring additional support. The School firmly believes that each student should be given equality of opportunity to achieve her full potential – spiritually, academically and socially – by recognising the uniqueness of each individual and providing a rich and varied learning experience for all. Where required, girls receive individual learning support for a range of needs, including specific learning difficulties; emotional difficulties and physical and sensory impairment. The School has a history of excellent provision in supporting the varied special educational needs of academically high achieving students. Detailed records are kept of provision made and targets set where classroom intervention is necessary. The progress of all SEN students is monitored by the Learning Support Coordinator and provision regularly reviewed and amended as necessary. Parkstone actively encourages students to recognise and accept each other’s strengths and weaknesses and support one another to reach their goals. Although the majority of girls identified as SEN by the school are categorised as School Action and School Action Plus, when supporting an individual statement of Special Educational Needs, the School ensures that all prescribed support is fully provided and that a constant dialogue is maintained between students, parents, specialist teachers and external agencies. 09-09
