Additional Learning Needs

An Introduction

Pupils have different strengths and abilities, particular needs and areas for development. Some pupils  show academic ability early and need to be encouraged and appropriately challenged.  Others need more time or assistance to develop their skills in reading, spelling or  mathematics or their emotional health and wellbeing.

All areas of school life are inclusive and the teaching is tailored towards individual learning providing challenge and support; encouraging everyone to reach their full potential. Account is taken of individual needs through appropriate differentiation of the curriculum both in the classroom and where appropriate, in an individual or small group situation.  Staff provide a positive ethos to enable the children to work towards  the development of ‘life skills’ and instil lifelong learning aspirations for everyone through a range of activities which are fun and enjoyable.
