Educational Support

It can happen that any child may need support at some time during their schooling. Different forms and levels of support are provided, designed to ensure appropriate help for pupils experiencing difficulties and having special educational needs at any point in their school career, to allow them to develop and progress according to their potential and to be successfully integrated.
In order to meet the needs of individual pupils on the basis of early dentification of those needs, a variety of teaching methods are used. Where normal differentiation is not sufficient schools provide a range of support structures.
The types of educational support provided are: General, Moderate or Intensive.
Pupils may experience difficulty in a particular aspect of a subject, may need to ‘catch up’ for different reasons or may have a mild learning difficulty or special needs. Support is flexible and varies as a pupil develops and his or her needs change.
In addition our school also offers a support programme for SWALS pupils.(Students Without a Language Section) : to accelerate the acquisition of the language of the section which these pupils attend.
On the Primary and Secondary parts of our school website you will find copies of our Educational Support Internal Guidelines.
