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

The school has an Area Special Unit attached which takes up to 10 children from the surrounding area who have profound, complex or severe learning difficulties, some with associated additional sensory defects; highly praised by Ofsted and is recognised as a centre of excellence. It has a highly experienced teacher who leads a large team of ancillaries. There is a very high staff/pupil ratio reflecting the level of pupil need. The children are integrated into the mainstream school on a planned basis for some lessons or social experience, and mainstream children integrate in to the Area Special Unit as well. Within the class the children follow an individualised curriculum based around Equals and P levels and Portage and they attend from around age 4-11 years. The class has a large, well equipped sensory room and a therapy room extension. Some children go to a hydrotherapy pool, others swim with the mainstream children and some go riding. In addition they have trips out and links to the local community. We have support from visiting professionals including occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech therapists to name a few. Some children use switches to access toys and the computers. PECS communication books are encouraged for non-speaking children. Makaton sign language is also used and taught throughout the school. In addition there are children in our mainstream with milder disabilities across the range of special needs supported with IEPs under the direction of the SENCO.
