Individualised 1:1 teaching is offered by teachers who have specialised in Specific Learning Difficulties. The Learning Skills staff regularly attend courses to keep up to date with the latest developments in dyslexia as well as other related areas. There is close liaison between parents, staff and Learning Skills teachers to monitor progress and individual lesson content. The pupils also give their input to their own Individual Learning Plans (ILP). The aim is to provide appropriate support which could include maths, literacy or study skills, to enable pupils to reach their full potential.
If a concern is raised by staff or parents, the Head of Learning Skills carries out a diagnostic assessment to determine and implement the appropriate intervention. The school arranges for an Educational Psychologist and Speech Therapist to provide assessments and support at school. We also work closely with Occupational Therapists and Optometrists.
