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.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

We are an inclusive school. We work with parents to ensure that the provision for each child maximises the chances of success. We are the adults and are prepared to change in order to accommodate all children whatever their difficulties. All teachers and support staff believe in doing their very best for every child. We have a parent support group for parents of children with individual education plans or who require additional input from school. We have partnerships with two local special schools and integrate some of their children into mainstream classes or our children visit their schools. Each year we have an “Inclusion day and Picnic” where children from these special schools come and join in a day of fun and learning together. (It usually involves clowns and circle games that can use sign language etc as well as the chance to get to make new friends from the other schools.)We also host a holiday club for children with special needs during the Easter and Summer holidays. We have worked with our linked Junior School on the Dyslexia friendly criteria and in the past have hosted the local Dyslexia Association Parent Support Group information and self help sessions. We have a very good success record with integrating children on the Autistic spectrum.
