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.

Special Education Needs

The Special Needs Co-ordinator interviews each student for whom the school has received an Educational Psychologist's Report. An individual plan is drawn up, following discussion with the student and parents. This identifies the main areas with which the student has difficulty and sets targets. Information from the EP report is used to provide advice to staff. The Special Needs Co-ordinator conducts a review with the student to assess progress and identify further needs. The Special Needs Coordinator also helps to refer pupils for external assessment where relevant. 09-09
