Special Education Needs
The Portsmouth Grammar Junior School is a selective independent day school for children of average to high ability. It believes that all children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress. Any child who is assessed as needing more or different support to that normally provided in school is said to have learning support needs. Every effort is made to ensure that each child receives the full curriculum entitlement. They are supported either in small groups, working with the learning support co-ordinator/teacher, or individually in class with teaching assistants, whichever is deemed to be the most appropriate to their needs. Specialist small group support is offered to children in Years 1-6. In-class 1:1 support is offered to children Year R- 6.
