Special Education Needs
Learning support at Monkton is done in three ways. In-class support, one to one tuition in a specially equipped room, one to 5/6 group work. The three staff (one full time, two part-time) are trained to help children with mild/moderate learning difficulties. Learning support is charged as an extra. The school is also used by the Bath Dyslexia Institute as an 'outpost'. Extra help is given to dyslexic pupils as well as a range of other learning difficulties. 09-09
