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

Alphington Combined School is an inclusive school and we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children whatever their educational and social needs. Our Head Teacher listens to teachers who express concerns about the levels of provision (human resources) that children with SEN need in school and, wherever possible, provides support from the school budget for these children. We believe in early intervention as a simple philosophy. To provide for and support children as early as possible seems to be the best and most sensible thing to do. We have a number of children, particularly in the Foundation Stage, who have speech, language and communication difficulties. Whilst we do not have a unit for children requiring extra help we work closely with Bull Meadow Speech and Language Therapists to plan and help deliver regular speech and language sessions. As a school we have very good relationships with external agencies such as the CIDs Team (Communication and Interaction Difficulties), the Speech and Language Therapists, the Visual Impairment Service, the Educational Psychologist service, the Pre-school Advisory Service, Honeylands, the English as an Additional Language Service, the Behavioural Team, Social Services and the School Nurse. Our experience is wide in the special needs area, and we are very aware of the more complex special needs of children coming into our mainstream school at this time. We aim for entitlement in education for all.
