special programmes

We have a extensive special needs programmes in place which includes Reading Recovery, individual and small group programmes for reading, written and oral language, and mathematics.  We have a Literacy Centre targeted for groups of children needing assistance.

Using a problem solving approach our Maths Hub works with middle and senior school students encouraging the students to solve problems in more than one way.  Learning to use what we do know to help us solve what we do not know is important to us, as is the ethos that mistakes are to be celebrated as they make our brain synapses light up and grow. 

Children identified as being gifted and talented are catered for in each teacher’s classroom programme. 

We also offer extensive programmes for children from English Language Learners
