Academic & Learning Support
The Academic and Learning support team at The Kingsley School consists of specialist teachers and teaching assistants. We work in partnership with pupils, parents, fellow teachers and other professionals to remove the barriers which make it harder for pupils with special educational needs to fulfil their academic potential. We work with pupils across the age and ability spectrum.
We use a multi-sensory approach to support pupils who have a diverse range of learning needs, including: skills for life (literacy and numeracy); dyslexia; dyspraxia; ADHD; hearing and visual impairment and ASD.
The support we provide includes:
- Specialist one-to-one support to designed to ameliorate and manage difficulties experienced by children with specific learning needs
- Collaborative work with subject teachers to support pupils within the classroom setting
- Support for small groups of pupils who share similar needs within a specific area of the curriculum
- Study skills advice to enable pupils to become confident and independent learners
- Liaison with other professionals to design programmes of support
- Access arrangements for examinations, as required, in accordance with JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) regulations
- Suggestions to help parents support their children at home.
