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

We run five small classes, each class having a teacher and a full time teaching assistant. All children in our school have targets to work towards that challenge the individual whatever their academic ability. When assessing children for 'gifted or talented' we look at the whole child and develop their strengths whatever they might be. To cater for these children we develop thinking and problem solving skills across the school, run a range of clubs, involve skilled practitioners, and work with other schools. Children with general or specific learning difficulties have a programme of support carried out within the classroom or in withdrawal time. This programme is shared with the child and the parent, is monitored and regularly updated. For children with physical difficulties, we have a disabled facility that includes toilet and shower. Our new extension allows wheelchair access to the the whole school site. We have a Disability Action Plan that we are implementing over a three year period to address other access issues within the school.
