Special Education Needs
The College wants to welcome any pupil that meets its required entrance standards. The Learning Support Department works on a one to one or small group basis with pupils. All pupils who have an identified learning need will be offered support, usually on a weekly basis. Pupils are taught in a structured, cumulative and multi-sensory way that builds on existing knowledge and provides revision and reinforcement of new learning. Strategies to support independent learning are taught and pupils are encouraged to discover their own most effective ways of learning. The Learning Support Department screens all children on entry to the school. All pupils who have an identified learning difficulty (supported by a report from an appropriate professional) are given a Pupil Profile which is distributed to all their teachers. Some pupils at St Dunstan’s College do use lap-tops. The College is able to offer specialist support for those pupils with dyslexia. 10-09
