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.

Special Education Needs

All pupils at Woolgrove have a moderate learning difficulty. Some have attention disorders, some have autism and some have a variety of other syndromes. We follow the National Curriculum at a level appropriate to pupils' needs. Our best resource is our staff who are experienced, well qualified and have a commitment to supporting the learning of all pupils. The majority of our staff carry out outreach work which not only supports mainstream schools, but also allows our staff to maintain strong links with mainstream education. Nov 09.
