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

New Road school is a small friendly school just out of the centre of Sowerby Bridge. The largest predicted class for the acedemic year 2006/7 is 25 in a class whilst the smallest class is predicted to have just 16 children. The children, therefore, benefit from more individualised teaching. The school is fortunate to have a Children's Centre on site which can cater for children from 0-5. There is the opportunity therefore to provide continuous support from 0-11. There is disabled access in both the Children's Centre and the main school as well as disabled toilets. There is a high level of classroom support from teaching assistants in each class which the children all benefit from. Staff have a wide range of expertise. There is a SENCO officer in the Children's Centre with 2 further members of staff in the process of being trained. In the Main School there is a member of staff who is responsible for special needs who has dedicated time each week allocated to ensure the children's needs are being met. Two members of staff have experience of working with children with visual impairment. From September 2006 there will be a programme delivered by a trained member of staff for children with Dyspraxia. We have several children with statements and these children are catered for well in school.
