Learning support offered

Each child has his or her own interests and abilities. For this reason, the Phorms concept is aligned towards the individual development of each child. A high care ratio, all-day teaching, inter-disciplinary team and project work, creative learning methods and exciting afternoon activities provide the scope for individual talents to develop.

In addition to this, the teachers foster and support individual children by providing regular small-group teaching within lessons. This is intended to support children who need to catch up in a core subject such as English, reading, writing or arithmetic. The assistance provided to children with learning difficulties also enriches teaching within the class community by delivering better integration and motivation for all children.
