Our Learning Support programme is designed to help students with mild learning difficulties advance in a mainstream school environment. The goal of the programme is to build students' self-awareness, confidence, and independent study habits so they can succeed in their coursework.
Key support services are delivered via a combination of:
- in-class inclusion for core academic classes
- specialised small group instructional sessions in mathematics and literacy fundamentals
- study hall.
In-class support may include a co-teaching model or a facilitation model, where learning specialists work with classroom teachers to differentiate classroom content and outcomes, encourage multisensory instructional approaches, and provide accommodations and modifications necessary for students to access the curriculum.
Small group sessions are provided in literacy and math and focus on bridging any identified gaps in ability. The course will be individualised to address the specific needs of each student, and will meet the child at their current ability. In addition, the curriculum for these sessions will be coordinated with the current core content curriculum being taught.
Admission to the Learning Support programme is not exclusive, and is designed to accommodate the needs of all students in the Lower and Middle School who experience difficulties accessing or keeping pace with the general curriculum.
Accommodations and modifications to the students' academic programme are made for students as required, subject to review by the school.
