Learning Support

This section

Every child has a unique profile of learning strengths and weaknesses. We design a tailored individual package of support for those who need it.

This is in harmony with our stated aim: ‘to enable all boys and girls to develop their love of learning, academic potential and individual talents in a caring community which fosters sensitivity, confidence, a sense of service and enthusiasm for life.’

Open doors. Open minds.

An 'open door' policy means any member of staff or parent can come to us with concerns about a child's progress or wellbeing. Then, we determine if he or she  needs specific help and how best to deliver it.

Children may also be identified as needing additional help through our ongoing assessment and screening procedures.

We offer a range of support:  accommodation or adjustments within the classroom, help in class from teaching assistants and specialist teachers, booster groups led by either teaching assistants or specialist teachers, one-to-one tuition from specialist teachers.

Small group lessons and individual tuition take place in our dedicated suite of rooms, located in the heart of the school. When required, an occupational therapist , speech and language therapist or educational psychologist all play their part.
