My Grandson is a sixth-form pupil at Beverley and today, I came to the Christmas performance. I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. Every performance by every class was really good and all the children (and teachers) deserve a huge pat on the back for all the hard work they have obviously put in.
Tom loves coming to school and was really looking forward to taking part. I was very proud of him and all the other families can be similarly proud as everybody did really well.
Once again, well done to all concerned.

I can't praise or compliment the school or staff enough. Our eleven years at Beverley haven't always been smooth ones, but Jack and myself have always found a kind listening ear, support and whatever needed putting in place for Jack at the time.

I have had a fantastic day at Beverley School. As a trainee teacher, I have seen lots of strategies that I will be able to use within my teaching practice. The children and staff are a credit to the school. Thanks for having me. M Farley (SKITT student)
During my visit at Beverley School I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the schools nursery where I observed some fantastic strategies to engage and educate the pupils. I will return back to my school where I will try to implement these strategies in my practice. L Vasarhelyi (SKITT student)
Thank you very much for the chance to experience some of a school day for these children. It means so much more to meet children and learn about their individual likes, dislikes and strategies to help them than reading about it in theory. There is a much wider range of social understanding amongst the children than I would have expected.

Nursery was so well run. All the children had a timetable which was used so that they knew what was next. The whole school was a calm environment and that really surprised me, but it was lovely. The nursery children were very engaged with the learning and any behavioural issues were sorted quickly, so that they didn't escalate.
W Hindmarch (SKITT student)
I was amazed by the calmness of the school, the amazing, kind and understanding staff and above all the individual attention each child receives.

Brilliant informative day giving an insight into a specialist school. The part I will take away from the day the most are:
The relationships between students and teachers.
How specialist the staff are, they know their jobs and this shows.
I will be going into secondary school teaching and will take many of the practices with me. I particularly enjoyed my time in Kendra's class and could see how much the students enjoyed being there. (SCITT student)

A really enjoyable and eye opening day, seeing the difference in severity of autism and the impact it has on how they are taught was amazing to see . All the students are attentive, polite and engaged and it was a delight to see pupils be like that. The facilities of the school are great both indoors and outdoors, nice and modern and very visual in the corridors representing pupil work. (SCITT student)
Enjoyed the feel of the school, it felt comfortable. I liked the subjects that the students took, focusing not only on academia but also on life skills/functional skills. The small class sizes and number of TA's in classrooms is great. The relationships between students and staff is amazing. (SCITT student)
Great to see a variety of lessons /subjects with students of a varying level of need. The adaptation of PE to create an inclusive situation was great to see.

Excellent use of staffing and seeing how each member had an important and clear role within the lesson. (SCITT student)

Thank you so much for allowing us all to visit the school today; everybody has been so kind and talkative, always prepared to answer questions and share what they are doing with the class.

Really lovely school, friendliness of both staff and pupils was really pleasant. In particular, Zoe the maths teacher, her ability to teach three different lessons in 50 minutes In order to cater for the different abilities was a amazing. Also the atmosphere was really peaceful, although I appreciate that this might not always be the case. You can see the engagement in lessons and enjoyment to try and keep focus of pupils which creates the peaceful environment. Thank you for an amazing experience. (SCITT student)

I found the morning really useful as it allowed me to see how schools approaches to supporting children with additional needs differ. I got to see the value of visual resources and the positive impact this had on the children's learning. Laura (School Direct student teacher)
Really enjoyed the morning here, spending time with the children and talking to members of staff. I will definitely be taking back into class the visual time-table. I will also be more aware of children's needs in general, every child is unique and they are all important! Thank you very much. Julia (School Direct student teacher)
The afternoon was very informative and learned a lot about autism that I didn't know. Really enjoyed my time spent in the nursery as gained an insight into the difference than in mainstream. Found the visuals within the nursery very beneficial (used for daily routine and at snack time) and would like to use in my own future practice. Catherine (School Direct student teacher)
I really enjoyed my placement here, the staff were lovely and dealt with the children in a very effective way. It was lovely to see all the children exploring independently and the relationships they have with staff. H Secker (School Direct student teacher)
A very valuable experience. I was worried about this placement as I didn't know much about autism. However, I now have a deeper understanding in relation to autism and how it can be approached within the learning environment. I have enjoyed the time I have spent in class with the adults and staff and I will be taking some strategies away with me. In overall, I feel more confident with SEN and I cant wait to learn more (hopefully if given the opportunity). D Berkeley (School Direct student teacher)

I found my time at Beverley School an amazing experience. The staff were extremely friendly and were very knowledgeable about the school, children and how to handle behaviour.
