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

Students with Special Educational Needs are initially identified through close liaison with the primary schools. Students’ needs are also identified through the initial screening process of assessment and by teacher referral. The school is also very keen to listen to parents’ concerns and work in partnership with parents. Students identified as having additional needs are fully integrated within the school by use of additional resources, including staffing and facilities, following consultation with staff, parents and the student. All teachers are responsible for meeting the needs of all students with special educational needs (as indicated by the revised Code of Practice). Teachers contribute to the development of learning targets for these students through the setting up, monitoring and review of Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for all students at School Action, School Action Plus and with Statements. The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (known as SENCO) will also liaise with outside agencies for the benefit of students identified as having special educational needs. A sensitive approach, which instils confidence, motivation, pride and success in all students, is a fundamental philosophy of the learning support department. 09-09
