Learning Development aims to build on the school philosophy of developing the potential of each and every individual pupil, as stated in the Mission Statement. More specifically, to help develop the learning skills of pupils who may find the rigours of academic life a challenge. The role of Learning Development is to support any pupil in a meaningful way; to maximise their enjoyment and progression through Senior School and into life beyond.
A variety of standardised assessments and screening tests are used to identify and monitor pupils with potential learning needs.
The approach is ALWAYS child-centred, starting with what the child CAN do, not what they can’t. Learning Development works with the pupil, staff and parents to enable the student to then bridge any gaps, build an understanding of their own learning skills and to work with these in the most effective way.
