Student Support

Every small step forward is a step in the right direction.

Learning support for our students with Special Education Needs and/or disabilities is a partnership between parent/carers and school. We have the same high aspirations for academic progress and personal growth as for all our students and our dedicated team of support specialists work closely with parents, teachers and students to secure practical plans which support personalised learning.

Our support begins in year 6, through close liaison with Primary Schools, and extends throughout a student’s time at school. Our support is for the development of the whole child, including his/hers personal and social development.

The Learning Support centre provides many students with a secure base and access to support at break and lunchtime, and enables access to specialist advice and guidance.

We have strong links with the local authority and other support agencies and the Educational Psychologist, who assist us in developing our expertise.
