Additional Support Needs
The school’s Additional Support for Learning Team, which includes the Area Specialist Support Teacher - Alison Hepburn, works collaboratively with the class teacher to identify those children who require additional support and to ensure that their needs are effectively met whether they are very able or are experiencing difficulty in certain aspects of the curriculum. In cases where a child is experiencing learning difficulties the school will make every effort to establish, by various methods of assessment, the source of the child’s difficulty and arrange a suitable programme of work which will cater for the child’s particular needs. On certain occasions it may be necessary, after consultation with the child’s parents, to refer the child to Psychological Services, who will liaise with both the parents and the school, offering advice and support on an appropriate course of action. We acknowledge and support pupils who are very able and make every attempt to provide challenging and varied tasks to encourage pupils to reach their full potential.
