The support we provide includes: consolidation of and/or completion of class work; help with home work; preparation for assessments; specific programme to help improve reading, spelling, comprehension and/or handwriting; literacy skills, numeracy skills, life skills; time out and time to talk.
Liaison with Parents
Regular parent teacher meetings are held in the campuss. Any member of the parents can approach the management with the issue they wish raised and all parents are encouraged to involve themselves with the school. The management works closely with the staff and parents for the benefits of our pupils.
These confidential documents are documented on weekly basis after meeting with the staff and management. Each profile outlines both the strengths and difficulties experienced by an individual pupil. It also lists strategies to ensure that appropriate support is provided to increase access to the curriculum for that pupil.
To ensure that the support pupils receive is specific, measureable , attainable, relevant and time bound we may decide in discussion with a pupil, their parents, other members of staff and other professionals that a child plan is needed. A solution focused meeting is held for all those involved and an action plan is drawn up. This is then reviewed and updated at regular intervals for as long as appropriate.
