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
We are a school with considerable experience of providing for children with a wide range of special educational needs. Until four years ago, there was a unit attached to the school to which children with complex special needs in the immediate area could go, instead of having to travel more than 10 miles to a special school in one of the bigger towns. As a result of this enhanced provision - which has now ceased, as the LEA has devolved funds so that children can be included in schools even more local to themselves - we still retain many of the experienced teaching and non-teaching staff in the school. Amongst our many resources, we have excellent disabled facilities, such as lifts, adjustable beds (one with a shower) and tables, as well as fully trained staff in moving and handling. All our teaching assistants are trained to at least NVQ2 in supporting pupils within the classroom and all staff keep their expertise up-to-date by attending courses and INSET training. We have regular input and advice from a speech and language therapist who helps us devise programmes for our many children with communication difficulties and from the physiotherapist and occupational therapist together with the input provided by the LEA support services.
