Learning Support

 

At Learning Support we make provision for those pupils requiring additional help to access mainstream education.

This could be 1:1 provision, small group intervention or support in class.

 We have an experienced team of Teaching Assistant (TAs) and we access further support from services including the Educational Psychologist, Occupational Therapy, Autism Team and Behavioural and Learning Support Services.

We offer support with specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia.

 

OASIS

Oasis, a calm and quiet place, is the Nurture Unit within the Learning Support Department.

We have a small team of staff who work with individuals and groups of up to 8 across all year groups.

Time in the unit is usually 1 – 2 hours per week.

We focus on the positive aspects of school life and work to help individuals through team work, sharing, taking turns, small group and pair work, team building and supporting each other.  Possible activities include horse-riding (4 pupils from Year 5), arts and crafts, cooking, gardening and playing games.


The SENCO, Mrs Steward, is available for anyone who wishes to visit the Department and enquire further about SEN provision.
