Learning Support

At St. Mary’s, we offer learning support for children who need it. We believe that we should make our education as inclusive as possible in accordance with the catholic values of respect, equity and social justice.

Learning support is planned in liaison with parents and teacher, taking into account other professional input when appropriate. It is tailored to the individual’s needs and in conjunction with the class teacher’s programme. Students learning plans are developed and monitored with interventions planned in order for students to thrive.

Children who need an extra challenge are also given the opportunity to extend their learning. They are encouraged to partake in extra curricular activities and engage in extension work both in and out of the classroom, such as Maths Challenge, Maths Olympia and Public Speaking.
