There are many reasons why a child or young person may struggle with the school curriculum. The difficulties they experience may be:
We support schools to identify where each student’s difficulties lie and to make adjustments to the curriculum to meet the student’s needs. However much support takes place at school, some children’s and young people’s needs are more significant and may require additional specialist support.
Our specialist teachers work with children and young people both individually and in small groups. They advise Learning Support Assistants (LSAs), monitoring and supporting them. They devise individual programmes and work collaboratively with class teachers and other professionals. They also lead INSET days in schools.
Our specialist teachers support students in the core curriculum subjects of numeracy and literacy. They also support them with social skills and Jewish studies (Kodesh).
