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

A fully trained team of teachers is on hand to provide support for students with learning difficulties to ensure that all children are supported and challenged to fulfil their maximum potential. The team liaise closely with outside agencies, parents and subject teachers to ensure that the most effective means of providing support are available. In some cases this may mean liaising with educational psychologists. A trained teaching assistant is assigned to most subject areas; this ensures that students receive the care and attention they require to maximise their learning potential and this additional in-class support can provide further opportunities for individual and small group in support of classroom teachers. The core purpose of our Student Support Service is to promote the successful inclusion of all students with additional educational needs. We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students what ever their needs or abilities. We value the contribution that every child can make and welcome the diversity of culture, religion and intellectual style. We seek to raise achievement of the whole community and remove barriers to learning. As such one of the most important initiatives for this department is ensuring that AEN is a matter for the school as a whole. All teachers need to become teachers of students with SEN. We want to ensure that our department is integral in helping staff work with youngsters within main stream, where ever possible, rather than use the service as a way of removing students from main stream education. The Student Support Service is at a very exciting point of transition. In the past students with special educational needs or, as we like to call them, additional educational needs, were supported by one team and students with educational behavioural needs were supported by another team. We have taken a far more holistic approach for the student, and have appointed a KS3 student support co-ordinator and a KS4 student support co-coordinator. Our aim is to develop two suitably qualified teams that will have the skills and expertise to identify and address the needs of the individuals at a particular Key Stage. In addition our colleagues have the confidence, ability and willingness to work with members of staff in their class room and help them become confident and competent in teaching youngsters with additional educational needs within the classroom. We do recognise that in meeting the individual needs of some students specialist programmes are a necessary requirement.
