At Giggleswick we embrace a breadth of ability and support each and every pupil to achieve the very best they can. We have a dedicated Learning Support team to provide professional assessments, personalised study programmes and in-class support for pupils with learning difficulties.
Our Head of Learning Support, Jonathan Curry, is qualified to conduct assessments to determine a child’s additional needs and we have specialist teaching assistants to support pupils in the classroom. We look at each child on a case by case basis and parents are encouraged to speak openly to us about their child’s learning difficulties.
Our teachers have experience of differentiating work for those with learning difficulties, using structured multi-sensory teaching programmes and by teaching study skills, organisation and revision skills. We also offer curriculum support or specific English teaching for students who speak English as an additional language.
