LEARNING SUPPORT DEPARTMENT
Towards Independence

Pupils at work


The aim of the Learning Support Department is to provide pupils with the skills they need to become independent learners. The school is fully inclusive; pupils are involved in all aspects of school life irrespective of their individual needs. Pupils who may exhibit different needs at different times are able to access a variety of support strategies from our department as we seek to address needs on an individual basis.

 

Individual, Group and Supported Study

Pupils may make use of the Learning Support room in the morning before school, at break and at lunchtimes for social clubs or to catch up on homework. Some pupils, especially in Key Stage 4, have lessons in the department; these may be either individual study lessons, providing them with the opportunity to catch up on coursework, or supported study, working with an LSA on a particular topic or aspect of the curriculum.


Provision for the Visually Impaired

The Archbishop's School Learning Support Department includes a provision for pupils with a visual impairment. Pupils in the provision are supported in-class with modified materials and technology as required.

In addition to drawing on the skills and experience of all Learning Support staff we have a fully trained team of specialised staff trained in working with pupils and students with a visual impairment.
