Learning Support


Learning Support is a broad term we use to describe how we scaffold the learning of a wide range of pupils.

Learning support may be offered to the following groups:

  • A focus class or year of pupils;
  • Pupils who are not reaching their potential (this may include high ability pupils);
  • Pupils who have specific learning or/and behaviour needs;
  • Pupils who have English as an additional language;
  • Pupils who are gifted and talented.

These pupils may receive short term interventions to help them reach their learning goals.

The school offers the following interventions to support pupils' learning:

  1. Reading Partners (Year 3 and 4);
  2. Numicon Intervention (Year 3 to 7);
  3. Accelerated Reading Year 5 Booster Project;
  4. Literacy Withdrawal Groups;
  5. Numeracy Withdrawal Groups;
  6. Additional Classroom Assistant Support;
  7. Time for Me (Pastoral Support & Life Skills).
