Learning Support Overview

  • All students reading, comprehension, spelling, and speech and language skills are assessed prior to starting at Notton House Academy.
  • This gives staff an overview of the individual needs of the child to inform planning, teaching and intervention.
  • All students are then re-assessed on a 6 monthly programme to monitor progress.
  • Some pupils are identified for 1:1 support and additional intervention to help accelerate progress in reading, spelling and/ or to help with language and vocabulary development.
  • Interventions are tailored for individual pupils.
  • A specialist, external Speech and Language Therapist works with all staff to promote language development with our students and with intervention staff to provide a full formal assessment of identified students. The therapist helps with screening, target setting and staff development.
  • The resources/schemes are used to meet the individual targets of each student.
