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

Norton Free C. of E. School works closely with Sheffield LEA’s Learning Support Service to provide for the needs of all the children in its care. Additional LEA educational services, including the Psychological Service, Behaviour Support Team and Autism Team, are contacted and involved when appropriate. Additionally, N.H.S. services, such as those for speech and language therapy as well as psychiatry, work closely with the school to address specialised needs of individual children. Such a collaborative approach often involves specialist training, including that of teaching assistants. The school is fortunate to have an enthusiastic staff who are capable of delivering such programmes. In 2006/2007 there are 5 children (out of 214 in total) with a Statement for Special Needs, each receiving additional one-to-one support for between 9 and 20 hours. Termly review meetings are organised by the school’s SENCo to assess each child’s progress and plan future individual targets. These are attended by the class teacher, SENCo. and allocated teaching assistant. Parents are also invited to these meetings and their uptake of this opportunity is high. The Diocesan Inspection, in June 2006, noted that, 'Teachers …know the pupils well and are alert to their educational, physical and emotional needs.' Norton Free C. of E. School is also proud that the accompanying Ofsted Inspection recognised that, 'Pupils enjoy coming to this friendly and caring school, and their personal development and attendance are good.'
