Learning Support

We seek to create an environment of warmth and support, where each child feels valued and has equality of access to the curriculum; where learning targets are achievable and success experienced, thereby enhancing motivation and self-worth.

We recognise that all pupils are unique and they develop at varying rates. The pace of their progress will be dependent upon the stage they have reached, their history of success in learning, the skills, abilities and talents they bring with them to the learning process and the range of barriers and challenges they face.

Junior School implements the Code of Practice for the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs. We aim to identify barriers to learning at the earliest possible stage, and our full-time Special Educational Needs Coordinator ensures that support is matched to the individual needs of each child. This support is provided by class teachers, learning support assistants, the Special Educational Needs Coordinator and specialists from a range of external agencies.
