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.

Since 1999, Mr Steve Jackson (40s); joined as deputy head in 1989, so has seen it all. Used to teach design technology and PE. Married to a deputy head; three children. Insists on showing new parents and visitors around the school himself. Except us, who were asked not to visit what is already a chronically oversubscribed school. 'A good front man,' said a parent, but 'not engaged in the day-to-day life of the school'. Publicity, website, school profile etc seemingly low on the agenda.
Special Education Needs
All students are encouraged to be as fully integrated into every aspect of the life of the school as possible. To help achieve this, The Blue provides classroom support and individual withdrawal sessions as appropriate. Teachers are also kept informed of particular students' difficulties which, in turn, enables a match between lesson content, teaching approaches and the needs of individuals. Individual Education Plans are used where appropriate to target specific learning or behavioural needs. This may involve one-to-one tuition or group work. Specialist teaching in the department is carried out by appropriately qualified staff. The school welcomes questions parents may have on any aspect of their children's special needs and endeavours to build an effective partnership with the home. The school has a Student Support Centre for pupils with emotional difficulties. The Centre offers a range of creative strategies to enable pupils to be successful in school.
