Learning Support is staffed by the Head of Learning Support and four highly qualified and experienced specialist teachers.
We place great importance on understanding the individual needs of each child and the department has a high degree of success in supporting pupils to achieve their full potential. Approximately 10% of pupils in the school receive support from the department.
We offer individual/small group support in Literacy, Maths, Study Skills and Executive Functioning coaching. The department maintains excellent communications with subject and pastoral staff and parents.
Pupils with a history of receiving exams accommodations for internal exams are reassessed in Year 10. The evidence of need and test results help determine the correct accommodations for public examinations. Final decisions regarding accommodations in public examinations rest with the school in order to meet Joint Qualification Council regulations.
