Learning Support

We have a large, thriving Learning Support Department

The Learning Support Team, is led by our SENCO, Anne Rickards. We cater for a wide range of learning needs and operate a variety of learning support bases. The academy has a Social and Emotional base called Safespace where students with ASC, or difficulties with their social skills can work in small groups using lego therapy and social stories and relax at break and lunchtime.

The academy has a specialist team for the visually impaired. There are also two general learning support bases for literacy and numeracy intervention.

We also have an onsite alternative learning centre called the ARC. Students referred to the ARC follow a personalised curriculum.
