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
The Learning Support Department has been created to ensure that we provide each child with the opportunity to fulfil his or her individual potential, by creating a secure and sensitive environment for effective learning, in order to assist them to function in our mainstream school. We aim to develop a positive attitude towards learning by providing support where appropriate to develop self-esteem and general self-confidence. To achieve this, the pupils are provided with programmes to develop improved techniques and address areas of difficulty. From entry, our assessment procedure allows us to monitor progress to ensure each child’s requirements are catered for. We provide small group teaching, in class support and individual teaching and work very closely with subject staff, and class teachers, to ensure continuity within the curriculum.
