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

Lexden School has an 18 place Unit for Hearing Impaired children from Nursery to Year 6. We have two qualified Teachers of the Deaf and currently 7 teaching assistants. The children's hearing losses range from moderate to profound and they all have post-aural aids or cochlear implants. We use Total Communication, which embraces Speech, Sign Supported English and British Sign Language. The school has a policy of inclusion - all children are on class rolls and are supported within their class by a teaching assistant with BSL skills. They are also withdrawn to the unit individually or in a small group by the Teacher of the Deaf or teaching assistant for speech and language work, currriculum reinforcement and pre-tutoring. A speech and language therapist and BSL tutor run regular sessions.
