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 school is voluntary aided and pupils with additional needs benefit from its Christian ethos. We cater for a wide range of pupils including those with medical needs, Asperger's syndrome, dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD. Pupils who need extra help are taught literacy skills in a small group of about 10 during English lessons. Paired reading, paired maths and SuccessMaker clubs run during registration times. The school has a team of 10 classroom assistants and 3 teachers. We are currently developing a Pupil Support Centre to help pupils to remain engaged with school life, to support pupils with SEN and to provide a base for pupils who find unstructured times at school difficult (break or lunchtime). The SENCO has AMBDA status and withdraws individuals or small groups for extra literacy tuition during the school day. Good communication is maintained with external agencies and staff work closely with a variety of specialists to ensure that pupils achieve their potential in school. Mainstream staff are kept informed of the needs of pupils and their IEP targets.
