Learning Support Teacher

The Learning Support Department at Tormead

At Tormead we aim to enable pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties or Special Educational Needs to achieve their full potential. We do this by working with the girls to enhance their learning skills and abilities; by liaising and working with their teachers to ensure the best programmes of study for each pupil; by communicating closely with the parents; and by liaising with outside agencies, where necessary. Pupils should thus have the greatest access to opportunities to make progress in their school work, in their programmes for examinations and in their preparation for future study or careers.

It is our aim to provide appropriate material resources, dedicated support and suitable guidance to support pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties and Special Educational Needs who are on the Learning Support Register and to develop a partnership with all members of the teaching staff to ensure that there is both a positive approach to the learning of those pupils and that support is provided throughout the curriculum.
