• The Learning Support (LS) Department aims to help learners with specific learning difficulties or differences (including Gifted and Talented (GandT) and English as an Additional Language (EAL) to be able to learn, achieve and develop the skills required to become independent and confident learners within the school environment.
• We strive to nurture self -esteem and confidence to ensure that the children are equipped with the desired skills attitudes and values to reach their full potential.
• The school has specialized staff with specialized training in supporting children with special learning needs.
• We have specific programs that help students with dyslexia, dyscalculia as well as those with memory deficits
• We have programs that help us identify the learning needs of students on admission. This then assists us in coming up with appropriate intervention strategies that meet the individual learning needs of the student.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

• The support offered depends on the individual’s learning needs. We do not employ a ‘one size fits it all’ strategy when it comes to supporting students. We use a diagnostic prescriptive approach when it comes to supporting students. We develop IEP’s with All stake holders and this is reviewed at least once a term
• The support is in form of (a) In class support (b) Small group interventions on specific areas and 1:1 support and again this depends on the need that the student has.
