Learning Support

The ethos at Stonar School is that of a 'whole school approach' to learning and developmental difficulties. The staff, academic and pastoral, are committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all children in a wholly inclusive environment.

Specialist teachers and learning support assistants in the Learning Support department are dedicated to caring for and providing the very best teaching and resources to support every pupil, who may need help at some time in their schooling, to achieve their full potential. Individual needs range from pupils who need short term help to develop and improve their study skills, to pupils who may have a specific learning difficulty and need to follow an individual work programme to improve their literacy or numeracy.

The department uses a variety of programmes, teaching materials and software, to provide a multi-sensory approach to learning. Learning Support also provides information and support to subject teachers in this close-knit, nurturing community.

There are many ways in which the department measures its success:

  • Improvements in individual reading, spelling and comprehension ages. We have seen some remarkable results.
  • Progress of pupils as measured by results in end of module tests and end of year school examinations.
  • Pupil perception of their own progress. This is most important to us, as growth in confidence and self-esteem is usually the key to learning.
  • Praise from parents regarding the support their child, as well as praise from Educational Psychologists and Speech and Language therapists.
  • The ultimate test - success in external examinations. Pupils who have received support from the department have achieved outstanding results in recent GCSE and A Level examinations.
