Supported Learning

Our mission

To support pupils in realising their potential.

The aims of the Learning Support Department are:

To identify learning needs in order to coordinate appropriate support suited to individual needs.

Children learn and develop in different ways. Teachers at St Lawrence College recognise this and use different teaching styles, resources and plan different tasks in the classroom to cater for the various ways in which children learn. However, many children, at some point of their school life, need extra help.

Typically this support includes small group work on reading, spelling, written work and basic maths, targeted to a pupil’s specific needs, including handwriting or touch typing lessons if necessary. Pupils may be supported 1:1, but all pupils have access to the same multisensory teaching styles, differentiated to their level and aimed at supporting their progress in their mainstream studies.

“The school is successful in providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities to gain academic success and develop their individual talents.”
