We believe that by working closely with teachers, pupils and parents, we can share information and build structured and bespoke learning support programmes that enable ALL children to engage with, and maintain their love of learning.
Small group and individual Learning Support is available across the school to meet a range of learning needs. We employ a fully qualified SENCO and several individual needs and teaching assistants with a range of qualifications. We aim to identify learning difficulties as early as possible through regular communication between parents and school staff, observation and assessment in class, and through our Learning Support department. If deemed appropriate by parents and school staff, referral for further assessment may be made to a trusted network of professionals beyond the school, such as Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Educational Psychologists, CAMHS and other sources of Mental Health and Well-Being support. Recommendations for support that emanate from assessment reports are communicated to all staff involved with the pupil. Parents are involved in discussions at all stages of learning support from raising initial concerns, through the assessment processes and to implementation of a variety of support strategies and programmes. We offer one-to-one, specialist teacher learning support, as well as one-to-one, teaching assistant support for an additional fee.
