Our support provided

Specialist support is provided by the ALDD for pupils of all ages from EYFS through to Year 10.

We support children through one to one, small-group and in-class work and interventions led by our learning support teachers, with lessons timetabled throughout the school day. The Learning Support staff liaise very closely with all subject teachers to ensure that each pupil’s support is linked as effectively as possible to the wider school curriculum using lots of resources and manipulatives to target their individual needs. We work collaboratively with external professionals, such as Speech and Language Therapists and Educational Psychologists – if and when needed, to ensure that all children make good progress.

Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) are carefully set with achievable targets and revisited at least twice a year for pupils receiving individual or group support, the department works closely with parents, pupils and staff to agree on targets and carefully track and monitor all our children through their everyday learning and their progress is reviewed every term.
