What The Good Schools Guide says..
Writers’ wall, changed every half term, features stories that are a personal best for their authors, not just the same old top talents. ‘It’s the pupils we’re proudest of,’ says teacher. Similar spirit - rewarding effort rather than straight brain power – prevails elsewhere. When all the children who had represented the school in sport were asked to stand up in assembly, ‘was almost everyone,’ reports a parent. ‘Not always the same sporty kids doing stuff.’
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.

Since 2014, Mrs Jane Hines BA (40s), after 10 years as deputy head and six as a class teacher here. Before that was based in Bristol, where had completed a classics degree before moving into teaching. Loved the subject but, coming from a family of dedicated, fulfilled teachers, no other career exerted the same pull. News of appointment greeted with delight by parents, who already knew her as voice of kindly calm authority and (correctly) anticipated more of the same. ‘Very calm and quiet, a real listener – have never seen her anything other than totally serene,’ said parent.
But it’s not just about maintaining the status quo. Mrs Hines is as dynamic (supported by strong leadership team) as they come. ‘Very receptive to ideas,’ said approving parent (we suspect...
Special Education Needs
St. Elizabeth's School takes particular care and concern for the children with Special Needs. Each child's needs are evaluated and special provision is put in place. We cater for a wide variety of special needs which at the moment includes, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, hemiplegia, cerebral palsy, speech and language difficulties, epilepsy, semantic pragmatic difficulties, mild visual impairment and moderate learning difficulties. St. Elizabeth's School has wheelchair access and full provision for children with physical difficulties. Children with physical difficulties are able to participate in a full curriculum including going on three school journeys whilst in the Junior School. We are open to receiving children with any kind of special need. When children enter the school the parents may approach the Head Teacher or the SENCo if their child has special needs and they are concerned about their provision. Similarly the school will approach parents if they are concerned about their child. In discussion with the SENCo, class teacher and parents, special needs children will have an Individual Education Plan written for them which will be regularly monitored and reviewed. The children will receive support from one of our SEN assistants or teacher who receive on going training in the teaching of special needs. We encourage parents to have regular contact with their child's class teacher and to work alongside learning support assistants, so that a good home/school relationship is fostered. At St. Elizabeth's School we ensure that all children feel included and this is a particular area of strength. All of our children feel happy and safe at school and enjoy learning, whatever their difficulty. Nov 09.
