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
The Student Support Centre at BMS offers an opportunity for all pupils to achieve to their full potential. At present there are six teachers and nineteen teaching assistants (full and part-time) who work with pupils (and the teachers of...) who have SEN. The main thrust of the SSC is supporting pupils in mainstream lessons. However, there is the flexibility to cope with pupils individual needs through small group or 1-1 work. We have the experience and knowledge of working with the diverse nature of SEN, as well as excellent working relationships with outside agencies within the local authority - autistic spectrum disorder, speech and language, specific learning difficulties, sensory and physical needs. We liaise regularly with parents and are always available to discuss any concerns (given appropriate notice!)
