What we aim to do:

It is our aim to support students with developing the skills necessary to become active members of the wider community. We will provide expert support and resources for students with Additional Needs (AN) to fulfil their potential. All of our interventions are outcome focussed, measurable and comparable.

Keys Stages 3, 4 and 5 Curriculum and Assessment:

All of the literacy interventions are based on the foundation skills of spelling, punctuation and grammar. Writing skills, speaking and listening skills, confidence development, ambition and motivation levels are fundamental considerations when planning schemes of work.
