Use of technology in the classroom

Each Year Group area has access to a range of technology, including interactive whiteboards in each classroom; shared pods of desktop computers (Windows and Mac); cameras and sound recorders. In Years 3, 4 and 5, class sets of iPads are also available to teachers for specific tasks. In Year 6, children are required to have their own iPad, which they use at home and at school. This is an important step, giving children the responsibility of looking after a personal device and learning how to use it responsibly, in the safe, familiar and structured environments of the Junior School and the home.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

When a child experiences challenges that require additional support, the school has a well-resourced Learning Support team who are able to cater to more individual needs.

Learning support offered

Through a collaborative, caring approach and working in partnership with children, parents and colleagues (including where necessary the school's Educational Psychologist), the Learning Support team provides a range of interventions to support learning differences. A range of assessment tools are used to identify learning needs, track progress and to determine the correct level of support. Attention is given to the learning preferences of each child and these are accommodated through our multi‐sensory programmes. Where necessary, Individual Education Plans are set up which provide achievable and measurable targets that are regularly reviewed. Some children may need additional support with the adjustment to new learning environments and routines as they move through the school and the transition processes is closely monitored with the Learning Support team playing a strong role, academically and pastorally.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Gifted and Talented intervention is delivered in a twofold approach: within each class through Tanglin’s differentiated curriculum and, additionally, through a range of stimulating, bespoke activities for small withdrawal groups. Units of work are planned to encompass the learner qualities of a resilient inquirer and to invoke children’s curiosity.
