Learning Support

Supporting every pupil to reach their academic potential

Monkton’s Learning Support department reflects the ethos of the school in its care for individual pupils.  The Department is situated in pleasant rooms in the centre of the school and is staffed by two qualified specialist teachers.  Pupils with specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia, are taught in weekly individual sessions. During these lessons literacy skills, study skills and curriculum support are available, according to individual needs. Alongside remediation, there is an emphasis is on the use of the latest technology to assist with independent learning.

The literacy skills of all students in year 9 are screened soon after entry and where the results of those tests suggest specific difficulty further screening of will be carried out.  More in-depth assessments are then carried out by the Head of Department where necessary and particularly where exam access arrangements are required. 

Information on pupils with specific learning difficulties is on the school’s database and Individual Learner Profiles (ILPs) are drawn up to enable all teachers to be familiar with each individual’s needs.

The Learning Support department works closely with the exams office to assess, monitor and apply for exam access arrangements.  

The Head of Department is available to speak to prospective parents as they visit the school and also at Open Mornings.
