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
Children requiring any degree of learning support at St Ives school are treated sensitively, sympathetically and with respect. Girls with mild to moderate learning difficulties are given strategies and study skills and there is opportunity for formal and informal assessments. Advice and recommendations from Educational Psychologist reports are acknowledged and communicated to all relevant staff through the child's Individual Education Plan. Extra support is provided for any girl whenever it is felt necessary whilst she is at St Ives and this will continue for as long as it is required. Learning support is tailored to suit the individual need. The child may receive 1:1 withdrawn support, support within a small group either in or out of the class whichever is felt most appropriate and beneficial. We have a successful home/school link and treat teaching and learning as a partnership by informing parents on progress through meetings, written reports and sharing IEP reviews. The school's experienced and well informed SENCo has attended many courses on dyslexia and dyscalculia and works with every class at least once a week and therefore sees all pupils working in situ and can thus verify and observe any chid giving cause for concern. The school also offers sessions of Brain Gym. Help and advice is offered to students and parents regarding the selection of senior schools. We have a good partnership with learning support staff at local senior schools which allows us to provide them with necessary information. We pride ourselves at St Ives at being aware of The Code Of Practice for SEN and follow a policy which will entitle all girls to access a balanced and wide curriculum with confidence.
