In which phase is your child: KTS1
An outstanding school with amazing staff. My child is very lucky to have a place in this school. He has progressed in ways we never thought possible and it is the hard work and dedication of the staff that have made this possible. Forever thankful.
KTS is a fab school the staff are fantastic. Our son as progressed so much since he started. Thank you. School is excellent.
I feel our child has come on in lots of ways since attending KTS. She is always happy to get on the bus to go to school.
H... is very happy at KTS the teachers are fantastic and his progress is amazing. Very proud.
We absolutely love the school and the staff. Our son has made amazing progress in the last 10 months. Thank you.
Not enough emphasis on developing the children to reach their maximum potential.
On the whole I am happy, however I think that some methods used for development are ineffective and I feel that the school is not always open to embracing news ideas, or individual tailoring of teaching approaches. I feel that SALT is woefully inadequate with group sessions inappropriate and resource driven rather than the best for the pupils. The teaching staff are incredibly caring and take a keen interest in their class and work hard to progress the development although I would like to think that my boys were stretched a little more to maximise their future potential.
In which phase is your child: KTS2
My son loves coming to school. I feel happy my son is in a safe place where the people care about him. School requires refurbishment and modernisation in places, which is a work in progress.
I think the school is excellent for education and staff are very happy and always willing to help the only concern I have got is giving medication when I have asked staff to give medication.
I'm slightly concerned that school is concentrating on academics rather than the life skills for the children. Whilst achieving any qualification is important, many are not able. I feel that teaching how to manage daily for each child is more important for our special kids.
Excellent school. We feel so lucky to have this school on our doorstep.
I feel my child is encouraged to be independent and taught skills to help him get on in life. It is nice to know that the staff know your child well and they know what to do to get the best out of them. The school has a family feel to it that I think helps the children learn.
In which phase is your child: KTS3
We have always believed we made the best choice of school for our son. The school cares for the individual needs of all its students.
KTS is the most amazing school. I have been given so much help and support over the last 5 years. Thank you.
Only one not strongly agree as sometimes my child tells me what he has and it is more treat food than something to be eaten every day.
In which phase is your child: KTS+
Kilton Thorpe School has been the best school I could of chosen for my son. He has learnt things I never thought he would. If he is upset by anything they seem to know exactly what to do and how to calm the situation. I am so glad that we chose this school and we are sorry that our child has to leave this year.
As parents we are well informed about our child from school. Very happy in general with teaching staff which all do a fantastic job.
KTS is a fantastic school. Our daughter has gained confidence and enjoys most things on offer at KTS. The staff are very approachable and done everything possible for our daughter. I have recently recommended KTS to another parent, who have applied for a place because they were so impressed.
Very happy with the school. Very welcoming school, happy with the life skills my daughter is learning. She's very settled in this school which makes us parents happy.
And here's what the pupils think:
Promoting life long learning through quality of education, respect and equality for all.
