“The Learning Support Department is a great strength of the School and is extremely effective in meeting the needs of LDD and EAL pupils.”
ISI Inspection, 2009
The Learning Support Department is an integral part of the School and we have recently opened a dedicated Learning Resource Centre. The team, which includes a learning support coordinator, a learning support assistant and a specialist dyslexia-trained teacher, work with staff and pupils across all age ranges.
We aim to prepare our pupils to become independent and active learners, enabling them to move confidently onto their senior schools.
Together we identify pupils with learning difficulties and where appropriate, provide support within the classroom. Some pupils are also taken out of lessons to follow programmes specifically designed to address their individual learning needs.
Individual educational plans are drawn up between the teaching staff and the Learning Support Department. Pupils and parents also play an active role in this planning process. These plans ensure that pupils’ specific learning needs are addressed across the curriculum, so they experience an inclusive learning environment.
