Special Education Needs
Hurstpierpoint College Senior School offers learning support to students with additional or individual educational needs, who require a more specialised approach to enable them to gain confidence, believe in themselves and acquire the necessary skills to make the most of future opportunities. The Director of Learning support has an MA in specialised education and is supported by the Head of Learning support, (a qualified SENCo), and a team of five learning support teachers. The aim is to identify students who may need extra support and to ensure that their learning needs are sufficiently met through appropriate, differentiated, graduated and specific teaching programmes. A collaborative and graduated approach is adopted through differentiation and quality teaching in order to provide a personalised learning environment. Consequently, the nature of support varies depending on the students’ individual needs and learning styles. Students who have been identified with specific learning difficulties are offered a specialised and systematic programme of study involving one-to-one, paired, or group intervention delivered by a specialist teacher. The learning support teachers provide students with strategies that boost their confidence and these are embedded within the academic support.
