Inclusion

Support Staff

We are very lucky in school to have a team of experienced teaching assistants who support the school, our learners and their families in different ways. Teaching assistants support in class, on a 1:1 basis or within small groups. They are a valued and hugely beneficial part of our school and a key part to ensuring that our learners make good social, emotional and academic progress.

Class teachers differentiate activities for all ability groups within their class and all children receive support from classroom teaching assistants who are part of the support team. If the Inclusion Manager and class teacher feel that any child is not making expected progress they may consider whether to offer him or her suitable intervention in order for that child to receive additional help and support for their learning within small group sessions or sometimes on a one to one basis. These are run by various members of the team and also the class teacher. Children, who receive any form of intervention, will be added to the schools’ provision mapping system. Intervention will be targeted in order to support them to make progress.

Family Support Worker and Learning Mentor

As part of the support network we offer to our families, we are delighted to be able to provide support from our family support worker and learning mentor. She regularly meets with families and pupils to offer support and advice improving children’s emotional health and wellbeing. Parents and carers are empowered to feel confident in their parenting and can freely approach school for support should they need it. All this contributes to children and young people succeeding at school, achieving their full potential and leading happy, fulfilled lives.
