Brief description of entry evaluation required

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

Learning Support

Learning support offered

Learning Support programmes support pupils who need a little extra assistance
to help them fully access the curriculum. Specialist teachers and Learning Support
Assistants work closely with class and subject teachers to devise a programme to
suit the individual child. Sometimes support is only required for a short time; in
other instances, assistance can be on-going over an extended period. Pupils felt to be
underachieving for any reason are also routinely assessed by the Learning Support
Department.
