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

At King's Norton Boys' School, the Learning Support Department (LSD) is responsible for dealing with boys who at any time during their school career are identified as having special educational needs. This might be related to their learning, or could be due to social, emotional or physical difficulties. If any boy is identified as having such additional needs, then they will be provided with appropriate support in school. The LSD is run by the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), with the support of a team of Teaching Assistants. The department operates the ‘SEN Code of Practice’, which outlines how a school should support pupils with special educational needs. Once a boy has been identified as requiring additional support, then he will be placed on the school database. This will ensure that his specific needs are met through an Individual Education Plan (IEP). This plan is drawn up after consultation with subject teachers and an assessment and diagnosis of the nature of the difficulty. A pivotal part of this process is the involvement of parents; parents will be advised if it is proposed to place a boy on the SEN database, and will also be invited to take part in regular reviews of progress. The process of support begins as soon as the boys enter year 7. The Teaching Assistants work closely with both the year 7 Form Tutors and with the lower band groups, to ensure that boys who might be struggling receive support within the classroom. Assessments in English and Mathematics help us to establish which boys will need additional help. This support continues throughout years 8 and 9. In years 10 and 11 boys will receive more individualised support, depending on their GCSE choices. In addition, boys may be withdrawn to receive extra support, either on a one to one basis, or in small groups. There are some occasions where the support that the school is able to offer is not sufficient. In these instances the school is able to call upon the expertise of colleagues within Educational Psychology, Pupil and School Support Services, Educational Welfare and Behaviour Support. If necessary, a request will be made to the LEA for a boy to be assessed for a statement of special educational needs. If this is the case, then parents will be involved throughout the process.
