Learning Support Primary

All children learn in different ways and at different rates. As a result it is sometimes necessary to provide additional support to individuals and groups of children to help them successfully access their learning.

Support in the classroom is provided by the class teacher and their teaching assistant through a differentiated programme. In some cases the production of Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are produced in conjunction with our Learning Support (LS) Team. Our LS team uses the “response-to-intervention” approach, which seeks to prevent severe difficulties through early intervention, monitoring progress and increasingly intense intervention for children who continue to experience difficulty. We also engage the services of outside school professionals, agencies and Dutch institutions to support individuals and groups of children.

The LS team consists of learning support teachers and a psychologist. We are a mainstream school and as a result are limited in the number of children and types of support we can provide for.
