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
All classes are mixed ability, and have a classroom assistant who works with children to support their learning. An additional special needs assistant works with children across the whole school, following specific programmes supplied by speech and language therapists, or educational psychologists. Another special needs assistant supports a child with a statement for autism. We have excellent links with health workers and speech and language therapists in supporting children with HI, VI and Downs Syndrome; and seek and act on their advice and guidance for children with specific needs. The support for children with special needs has been recognised as being very good in our last two Ofsted reports. All children's progress is tracked and monitored, those with special needs are found to achieve very well. We believe it is important to support children as early in their education as possible and put support mechanisms in place when problems are detected. We know that the support of parents is vital to children's success, and have very good links with the parents of children with special needs, meeting them informally and more formally each term to update IEPs. Learning support assistants go on training to improve their understanding of specific difficulties, the SENCO keeps up to date with developments by attending regular training, and whole school inset training has improved teachers’ awareness and understanding of dyslexia, autism, and communication difficulties.
