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
We do not have any segregated provision for pupils with special educational needs. All our SEN pupils attend mainstream lessons, supported where possible by teaching assistants, and differentiated teaching and learning materials. The system is supported by close planning between the teacher and the teaching assistant, and informed by Individual Education Plans (IEPs). Other support systems include paired reading provided by sixth form and other volunteers, weekly library sessions for poorer readers, withdrawal for literacy sessions, Key worker and mentoring systems, close home-school liaison and the occasional (and effective) use of parents in school. Strategic ASD Provision for the Carlisle Area is planned to open at Caldew School. Pupils in this provision will normally be able to meet the demands of a Secondary mainstream curriculum. Their ASD will inhibit or restrict their access to the curriculum. The purpose of the provision is to promote and support their access to the teaching and learning process. The facility will support most of its pupils, in most of their lessons, most of the time. At other times we will provide withdrawal and support arrangements to meet individual and immediate needs. We will provide appropriate accommodation that supports reflective study, social and life skills acquisition, individual and specialist tuition. We will, with the support of the local authority meet the criteria for the Cumbria Inclusion Chartermark Level 2, (The Establishing Stage).
