Children with a Learning Support need will be identified by teachers and their provision is considered, discussed and planned extremely carefully to ensure it enables that child to meet their full potential.

Learning support offered

There are different levels of learning support at Kenton.

There is a universal approach to learning support, in which every child receives differentiation in the classroom. Teachers skillfully plan learning for children matched to their level and next steps in order to both support and challenge them.
Set 3 in the senior school has been designed to be a low pupil to teacher ratio and this in itself it a form of learning support. Children benefit a great deal from these small groups, gaining confidence and asking those all important questions.
If a child has been assessed by professionals as having a specific area that needs additional focus or a different approach then they will receive an IEP (Individual Education Plan). This outlines the pupils targets and strategies which teachers should use. This is shared with teachers, parents and where appropriate pupils. At this point it may also be beneficial for pupils to have Lessons with one of the Learning Support teachers in the department. In the Senior school pupils would attend these Learning Support lessons during their Library time, or if agreed with all stakeholders then they would drop a second language.
