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

Special Education Needs

Class teachers automatically differentiate all work presented to the children, and in this way the less able are supported and the more able are extended and challenged. Where the class teacher feels the child is not making appropriate progress, the advice and support of the special needs teacher is sought. At this stage the child may well be withdrawn from class two or three times a week for small group help. This help and support is offered in literacy and/or numeracy. Children who receive extra support in this way are placed on the special needs register, so that their progress may be tracked and evaluated. The school has the services of an educational psychologist, who visits each half term and can assess individual pupils and meet with parents.
