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
We are an inclusive school and strive to ensure that all students feel that they are supported in reaching their full potential. We are a named SpLD unit with places for six statemented students, two members of staff are currently undertaking courses in SpLD. We also have a students' support area which is open to all. Some SpLD students are withdrawn from a small number of classes for specific support and guidance regarding literacy. In KS3 some students are disapplied from one MFL in order to work on basic literacy and numeracy skills and in KS4 some students take learning support as an option. These groups have been set up in order to ensure the students receive the support they need without having to catch up on work missed when withdrawn from an occasional lesson. Most of our support is carried out in the classroom with subject specialist teaching assistants. Teaching assistants sometimes withdraw small groups of students from the class to work on the subject/topic being studied in a different way with a higher adult:student ratio. Teaching assistants and teachers work closely together. There are opportunities for students to access support with homework and to attend small group sessions in order to improve skills such as fine and gross motor, social skills, sequencing and planning etc.During the first 6 weeks all students are monitored by teaching and support staff and all hard data collated. Decisions about who may need support are made around the first half term. Parents are informed of any concerns and are invited to comment or meet with the LS co-ordinator. IEPs are drawn up and distributed to teaching staff and parents.
