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
At George Dixon International School we have a “whole-school” approach to the education of students with special educational needs. All teachers share responsibility for the identification, assessment and provision appropriate to meeting individual student needs within their own curriculum area. The work of the Student Support Department interconnects and underpins the practice of other departments. Students with special educational needs have access to all National Curriculum subjects. Students are taught in mainstream teaching groups, and are placed in groups as part of the whole school setting process. In-class learning support is provided where possible. The Student Support manager has prime responsibility for promoting awareness of the needs of students with special educational needs, and for encouraging and supporting the development of appropriate opportunities and resources throughout all aspects of school life. We offer extra support through: registration classes, lunchtime reading classes, after school classes, mentoring and 1:1 support in the Student Support base. Outside agencies work in partnership with Student Support and Pastoral teams to support: learning, behaviour and to monitor progress of individual students when required.
