Learning Support Department
Students with additional educational needs are supported in a variety of ways by experienced and highly qualified team of staff both within the Learning Support Department and also from colleagues who work with us from other institutions.
Our team of experienced and highly qualified staff support students who have a wide range of needs from physical difficulties, to learning difficulties, to behavioural issues as well as those who have difficulty with speech, language and communication. The quality of support given to those students helps them to achieve both in and out of the classroom, as staff have a number of specialisms and use these in their support of the student. These specialisms also include Elklan accreditation for speech and language as well as IDL Dyslexia training.
Working alongside the teaching staff, parents, students and outside agencies the Learning Support Department assess the needs of the students and work together to support them in a number of different ways, should it be one to one support, small group work or in class support with the differentiation of the teaching and the curriculum as necessary.
The school also has experience in supporting those students who are Child Looked After, have English as an additional language or need a wide range of other necessary support mechanisms.
Able, Gifted and Talented students receive a support in a number of different areas in order to challenge them and with the setting of high aspirations they achieve above and beyond their expectations.
Our Pupil Premium co-ordinator assists students who are eligable for Pupil Premium or Catch Up Premium. Amongst some of the things she does, she assists them in the classroom, ensures they all have the necessary equipment and is a point of contact should the need arise.
Extra curricular activities also enrich the curriculum for all the students as well as all the others in the school.
