Support Staff

Our team of support staff support identified students in timetabled lessons under the guidance of the teacher. This could include 1:1 support or in small groups.

Literacy Intervention

When students who need additional support in literacy are identified, they receive 1:1 intervention, focusing on the key skills.  

Other Interventions

This could be for ASD, reading, reading comprehension, spelling, handwriting, numeracy, social skills. These could be delivered by a teacher, support staff, Educational Psychologist or a member of the Language and Communication Team. External interventions are also offered where this has been identified through referrals to multi-agencies.
