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 Oaks is a two storey mainstream primary school which serves an area of predominantly rented housing and very low cultural diversity. We have a higher than average number of pupils with SEN and pupils with statements for learning, autistic spectrum, sight impairment and minor physical disability. The school has toilet facilities in both KS1 and KS2 for people with mobility challenges and a recent addition is a lift to increase access around the ground floor of the school, which is on three levels. Presently Years 5 and 6 are upstairs in the Junior end of the school and at the moment there is no access for a wheelchair to go upstairs to those rooms or to the full computer suite, although we do have an additional smaller suite networked to the main one in the Infant department. We have an experienced SENCO and a super team of well qualified Teacher Assistants who are familiar with working with IBPs and IEPs. We are supported by an excellent range of outside agencies who recognise the very good work we do.
