Support Groups

The school provides a wide range of additional help and support for children both within and outside timetabled lesson time. This includes support and/or intervention for those with specific, identified needs and sessions to stretch and challenge those with particular skills and aptitudes.

Support and Intervention

Children can be referred for assessment /targeted/specialist support provided by a range of different interventions and activities. These referrals are usually made through the child’s teacher, SENCo or via external agencies such as GP’s or Social Services.

Skills and aptitudes

The school also caters for children who can benefit from working in small groups to extend their knowledge and understanding – often based on specific skills or curriculum areas. Some are recommended by their class teacher whilst others are open to all. Some are held in every term, others at specific times during the school year.  Should you consider this approach would benefit your child, do get in contact in the first instance with your child’s class teacher.
