How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs? 

How are the school’s resources allocated to these needs?

  • All staff are trained, (through a yearly programme of Continuing Professional Development seminars), in adapting lesson plans to increase the use of strategies known to support students who need extra help. For some students with lighter needs, this is all that is required to help them make progress.

  • Teachers also have access to the profiles of students known to have specific needs and they can collaborate with the specialist staff to build adaptations to activities especially for those individual students.

  • Many lessons benefit from having a teaching assistant in the class who can identify difficulties and help to give instant support to your child.

  • You will have opportunities to discuss exam choices in Year 8 with the aim of selecting subjects based on your child’s strengths and interests.
