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

At Thomas Alleyne's all students follow a mainstream curriculum. We believe in giving all students access to all subjects, but realise that some may require support in order to take part in, or meet the requirements for particular subjects. Support is provided in a variety of ways. These include: teaching assistants in lessons; one-to-one literacy tuition; nurture groups; visits from specialist outside agencies; alphasmart laptops for recording work; homework club; social club; one-to-one revision sessions etc. We have close links with the Autism Outreach team and host regular support groups run by a teacher for the hearing impaired and a speech therapist. We currently hold the Basic Skills Quality mark and run literacy and numeracy clubs for students who have difficulties in one of these areas. We also have Dyslexia Friendly status level 1 and are working towards achieving full accreditation. This means ensuring that all staff are regularly updated in Dyslexia Friendly teaching techniques and ensuring that all of our classrooms are Dyslexia Friendly.
