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

The philosophy of the department is for inclusion to provide support across the whole curriculum for any student who has special educational needs, either on a long term or temporary basis. We aim to support students within the classroom where/when possible. Some small group or individual withdrawal is offered to those students for whom an additional teaching programme is preferable. Each member of the Learning Support Team is fully trained according to DCSF standards for Teaching Assistants; additionally, individual members have further specialisms in supporting students on the Autistic Spectrum; with Down's Syndrome; with brain damage; with dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD; with speech and language difficulties and in manual handling techniques for physically disabled students. Several members of the team have counselling skills and regularly see students with emotional difficulties. There are links with designated agencies for hearing impaired and visually impaired students, for looked after children, the Traveller Education Service and the English as an Additional Language Service.
