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
The Special Needs Team (SENCO, SEN support teacher, SEN support assistants and headteacher) has oversight of all pupils in the shcool. Teachers and support staff work closely with parents to identify any pupil with any special education need, relating to learning or medical needs. Pupils are supported in class and often withdrawn for specific teaching and identified learning objectives. The SEN Team works closely with the LEA's Pupil Support Service staff who offer a wide variety of specialist advice and support. Parents are involved in their child's education throughout the year and frequent opportunities are provided for staff and parents to meet together informally or on a more formal review basis.
