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.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

Chiswick School has a vibrant SEN faculty whose team works hard to address the vast range of needs presented by students. We feel strongly that every child has a right to experience success and to be valued: raising self esteem is paramount. Pupils with SEN, be it emotional, behavioural, learning or social difficulties, receive good guidance and support from the SEN faculty, Learning Mentors, Behaviour and Education Support Teams (BEST) and Behaviour Improvement Programme (BIP) teams, EAL staff and The Learning Support Unit. Our aim is to support students whose difficulties impact upon their learning and impede progress. Pupils with learning difficulties are quickly assessed (by school staff or outside agencies) and supported in their learning. The needs of all these pupils are well known to all teachers via the SEN student booklet, Keyworkers, the SEN register and liaison between support staff and other teachers. The Social Inclusion Panel is effective in deciding appropriate provision for each child and for including parents in the process. Parents are very much included in decision making where extra support needs to be provided. We feel that the learning culture for our students is good. We are committed to inclusion and want all students to feel valued. We run Social Skills, Anger Management, Study Skills and Listening Skills groups, among others, to help students enjoy a well rounded school experience. Most of our students have a positive attitude to learning and they seem to value the extra support provided. They have a desire to learn and achieve; this is illustrated by the number of students who come to the SEN homework club after school. Our faculty is stable and well-managed. The team has a genuine desire to help students and knows pupils' needs well. Staff take care to share their findings with other subject teachers to help maximise students' learning and planning is efficient. We have a friendly, dedicated team of teachers well-respected by the borough: for us, every child matters.
