Our primary aim is to raise the self esteem and self confidence of pupils for whom failure may have been the norm, by supporting and extending their level of work.
The Study Skills Centre exists to enable each pupil to learn and progress as an individual to his or her potential academically, socially and personally, and to assist teaching staff in the structuring, production and delivery of resources and teaching material.
To reflect the school’s aims as stated in the School Handbook and Prospectus.
To raise awareness of the needs of the pupils highlighted by the department in a school where high academic achievement is expected by both teachers and parents and reflected in examination results.
To provide specialist facilities within the limits of the LEAs resources, and to make the additional provision necessary for those who are in any way disadvantaged.
To assist teaching staff in the identification and support of pupils with SEN, through clear lines of communication and to encourage the application of the knowledge.
To assist teaching staff in the structuring, production and delivery of resources and teaching materials for pupils with SEN by working with departments both formally and informally.
To inform parents of the support available for children with Educational Needs within the school and the LEA, and to access their rights to be involved in the assessment and decision making, emphasising the importance of their contribution.
To discharge the responsibilities of the School Governors as required by the 2002 SEN Code of Practice.
To enlist the support of outside agencies to assist the school in its provision and to co-ordinate that support where it is required.
