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.

Special Education Needs
Watling View is an all age County special school which provides for children and young people who have severe learning difficulties. Watling View has excellent facilities and resources which enable us to provide pupils with the best possible educational opportunities. We have a specialised sports hall and hydrotherapy pool which make it possible for us to teach a wide variety of physical activities. We aim to develop and enhance the potential of our pupils through an ethos and philosophy which emphasises that we are all of equal value as members of an interdependent supportive community. We strive to ensure that all pupils have equal entitlement to the most appropriate curriculum and resources. We also aim to promote the personal and social development of pupils, enhance pupils self esteem, develop lively, imaginative, creative and enquiring minds, and develop the most appropriate communication skills for individual pupils. We enable pupils to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to contribute effectively within the home, school and wider community. However, we are not only concerned with the gaining of knowledge and skills, but also with the development of the whole person. We believe in the importance of giving our pupils a positive self-image and the confidence to enable them to function effectively in their environment. We ensure that they are as well prepared as possible for opportunities, experiences and responsibilities they meet as they progress through the school and into their adult lives.
