Excellent provision within a nurturing environment.
Queen Mary’s is a caring, family school and the Support for Learning Department is an important part of the community. You can visit the support team at any time during your school life for additional help in any area you require it. We are committed to early identification, assessment and a graduated approach to provision for children who may need support and offer this within our core fees.
We have adopted a bespoke approach to curriculum planning and are prepared to adapt a particular child’s workload in order to facilitate more effective learning.
The first wave of support is quality first teaching, delivered by the class or subject teacher. Children who are falling slightly behind their peers should receive targeted differentiated work then be given additional support sessions by the subject teacher. The second wave of support includes access to in-class support, access to departmental led subject clinics and/or the use of assisted technology. The third wave of support recognises that the child may need withdrawal from mainstream lessons and specialist teaching is implemented.
