Learning Support

 Learning Support and Nurture

Our team of specialist Learning Support and Nurture staff provide teachers and students with advice, help and support to enable all students to learn effectively. They are regularly trained in the needs and support strategies for autism (ASC), specific learning difficulties (SpLD), dyspraxia/DCD, ADHD, speech, language and communication (SLCN), physical disabilities (PD), hearing and visual impairment (HI, VI), complex needs including medical needs, social, emotional and mental health (SEMH). They work closely with specialist SEND teachers, a speech and language therapist, a creative therapist, occupational therapists, physios and other professionals.


All interventions are tailored to individual need and are based on a four-part cycle (assess, plan, do, review). Through this cycle, actions are reviewed and refined as understanding of a student's needs and the support required to help them secure good outcomes increases.


An example of interventions that may be delivered:

Lego Therapy

Daily literacy programmes

Paired/group reading 

SALT (Speech and Language Therapy)

CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)

Occasionally students may be withdrawn from subjects to enable longer-term Learning Support or Nurture work. Parents/carers are always consulted before this happens.
