Learning Development

Castle Court is an inclusive school that believes passionately in the best provision for every child in order for them to achieve their potential. We are committed to implementing an appropriately-reviewed personal learning plan for any pupil at any stage in their school career.

Our Learning Development department strives for excellence in our Support for Learning and EAL pupils. All our staff are dedicated to ensuring that short- and long-term needs are addressed in every area of school life. These needs may range from enrichment, language support, dyslexia or dyspraxia, to mild or moderate communication, emotional or behavioural needs.

Within the classroom in the early stages of provision, a teacher may put in place booster group work or individual targets. If further support is required, the school can offer on-site specialist tutors and therapists for such areas as speech and language.

Partnership with Parents

The Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) and Learning Development team also meet with parents to devise a programme that keeps parents fully informed, and a target system is put in place to allow parents, children and staff to be fully involved. We may recommend getting an educational psychologist’s report and will arrange for this with parental permission. We review children regularly and this allows us to develop their programme of support to the greatest effect.

The partnership we have with parents in giving this support is central to its success. For this reason, the school encourages any parent with a Learning Development concern at any time to contact our full-time SENCO.
