The role of the Learning Support Department is to work with staff, students and parents in order to help maximise students’ achievements and to ensure progress. All students have the right to an education which is appropriate to them as individuals. Therefore it is our aim to provide high quality support to ensure that all students are included and make progress; as well as minimising the difficulties that students will experience. Student progress is monitored through the assessment procedure which is in place for all students.
We aim to achieve this by adopting three principles that are essential to developing a more inclusive curriculum.
Three Principles for Inclusion
Setting suitable learning challenges - We aim to give every student the opportunity to experience success in learning and to achieve as high a standard as possible.
Responding to students’ diverse learning needs - We take into account the different backgrounds, experiences, interests and strengths which influence the way in which students learn when we plan our approaches to teaching and learning.
Overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment for individuals and groups of students - We recognise that a minority of students will have particular learning and assessment requirements that will create barriers to learning if we do not address them through special arrangements.
It is also important we:
- Listen to students’ opinions, questions and anxieties
- Employ positive marking techniques
- Recognise, celebrate and reward progress however small
- Be consistent and fair to all students
- Enable students to make choices and decisions about their work so they feel valued
- Encourage good relationships with students and recognise that mutual respect and trust are important
