Learning Support

At Purbrook Park School we value every child and their right to a good education.  Our Learning Support team provide a secure, yet challenging environment where young people will achieve their full potential, regardless of any difficulty they may have in accessing the curriculum.

Learning Support has been successful at integrating pupils with a wide range of special educational needs into the education and social life of the school.  Pupils are encouraged and feel valued, happy active members of our school community.

The teaching staff shares the responsibility and recognises supporting pupils with different learning needs.  We work as a team with an attitude to provide a safe, secure and balanced environment that meets the requirements of all pupils who need extra support for their learning.

The Learning Support team has a wealth of experience including a Higher Level Teaching assistant, a Speech and Language Specialist Teaching Assistant, an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant and Teaching and Learning Assistants who provide both in class support and interventions. We provide 1 to 1, small group work, differentiated material, exam concessions,  interventions catering to particular needs, in class support and a safe place for vulnerable pupils at lunch time to name but a few, providing a holistic attitude to a young person’s support.

The Director of Learning – SENCo and Inclusion and the SENCo Assistant liaise and work closely with a multitude of outside agencies to ensure the school are providing the best strategies to support the pupils with their different learning needs.

The Director of Learning – SENCo and Inclusion and SENCo  Assistant are always available to parents, they endeavour to make the transition from primary to secondary and on to college as uncomplicated as possible.
