Special Education Needs
A baseline assessment is undertaken when the boys join the school in reception. This is followed by an end of reception assessment. Children are also screened in Y1 and Y2 for dyslexic type problems. If a child is causing concern at any other point, then individual assessments are also carried out. When necessary, a child might also be referred to an Educational Psychologist. If learning support is given to a pupil, as a result of assessments, then this is usually in the form of weekly 1:1 lessons or sometimes small group lessons. The School ethos is one of embracing a pupil's individuality, helping him to grow in self-confidence and self-worth. Those pupils with specific learning difficulties are no exception and are supported in a caring and practical way.
