The Junior School’s Learning Support Co-coordinator, alongside the Early Years SENCO, provides support and management of the learning of pupils with additional needs.
We see specific learning issues as a different way of learning, not simply a set of difficulties. At the same time as helping pupils to improve in their weaker areas, we emphasize their strengths and celebrate their successes too – whether academic, sporting, Art and Design or in Drama and Music. We help pupils to develop successful strategies which work for them.
The school follows the guidelines and recommendations as specified in the updated SEN Code of Practice. We support pupils to suit their individual needs. We believe that high quality teaching in class is the most effective way of supporting all children in their learning where work is differentiated to meet the needs and capabilities of learners. Additional needs are quickly identified and addressed. Where identified extra support is provided either in class, in small groups or individually. A range of interventions to support different pupils’ needs are used.
