Our student body encompasses a wide range of academic abilities, and includes children with specific learning difficulties, some of whom will require additional support to enable them to access the curriculum and maximise the benefits of their school career.

Our dedicated team of learning support assistants work alongside Junior School classroom teachers across Reception and Years 1 and 2, working flexibly in the areas of greatest need. Small class sizes throughout the school help to build a supportive and responsive environment in which every child can thrive.

By Year 3, children with specific learning difficulties have been identified and together with students from Years 4, 5 and 6, they will be supported and encouraged by the special education needs.
