Learning Support

Our dedicated Special Needs Coordinator, Mrs Shirley Gardner, coordinates teacher aide support within core classes and dependent on need, for one-on-one learning support.

Within our Student Services Centre we have a Learning Support room where teacher aides can work with students, and boys can gain valuable social interaction skills with their peers in a quieter environment.

Extra help available for students includes Ministry of Education Resource Teacher: Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) support, and special assessment conditions for exams.

Students are tested in their early years to ensure that all those who need extra support are given it.

We use the Asttle system for both numeracy and literacy to check students' progress. The results are then used to build individual pathways for students who require more help, in consultation with classroom teachers.
