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
Palatine has a dedicated Learning Support Area in addition to a Behaviour Support Unit. Learning Support is staffed by two qualified SpLD teachers and ten Learning Support Assistants. Students are supported in a number of ways, either by additional staff in smaller classes, or by extra withdrawal classes in small groups to enhance basic skills. Students are withdrawn from timetabled lessons on a rotational basis for these, so they also continue to access the full curriculum with their peers. We have 15 computers in Learning Support with a variety of programmes, including "Successmaker", an Integrated Learning System allowing students to work at their own pace on indidvidual programmes. We feel we provide a supportive, caring environment, offering encouragement before, after and during the school day, for every student to discover their own personal strengths.
