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
King James's is a relatively small school and we aim to support our students in any way they feel they need. When pupils come to us in Year 7 they take tests in a number of areas which allows us to identify anyone who may have particular difficulties. Pupils will then be given provision to match their needs. Currently we have a dyslexia specialist teacher as well as the SENCO and a small but caring and lovely team of classroom assistants. As well as helping students overcome difficulties in literacy we also work with small groups of Year 7 pupils with their maths skills. Any student who feels they need some help with homework or classwork is always welcome to come along for support and we are more than happy to talk to parents about ways in which we can support their child in school. We aim to provide a caring and supportive atmosphere, a place for children to feel safe and know they can find someone to help them whatever their difficulty.
