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.
Special Education Needs
Rudyard Kipling is a mainstream primary school and currently supports children with a range of special educational needs. We support children at the stages of school action and school action plus and those who have a statement of special educational need. Our current support includes that for children with literacy and numeracy difficulties, speech and language difficulties, milder sensory need, fine and gross motor difficulties, children with an autistic spectrum disorder including Asperger's, children on the dyslexic spectrum and those with a social, emotional and behavioural difficulty. We have recently become wheelchair accessible to children in Key Stage 2 (seven years and upwards). Class teachers from Nursery to Year 6 work closely with the special educational needs coordinator and parents in identifying and supporting special educational need. We aim to promote parent partnership in individual education plan target setting and offering consistency of support at home and at school. We work closely with a speech and language therapist and a speech and language support teacher. We liaise with Brighton and Hove's learning support service supporting children with more significant literacy difficulties. We also regularly liaise with an occupational therapist and physiotherapist, the autistic spectrum disorder support service, children and adolescent mental health service, school nurse and G.Ps. An educational psychologist supports our assessment and support for pupils where appropriate. Rudyard Kipling also houses a Special Facility accomodating eight pupils with a Statement for autistic spectrum disorder and related difficulties. This facility has a separate team comprising of a facility coordinator and learning support assistants working with the children in the facility rooms and supporting their integration into mainstream school life and mainstream classes, with levels of integration varied according to need.
