Learning Support

The Learning Support Department at Chantry Academy liaises with partner Primary Schools, so that most students who have special educational needs have been identified before their arrival.

Classroom support is provided by a team of Learning Support Assistants and is structured to enable students to access the curriculum. Priority for support has to be given to students with EHCPs, but other students also benefit. We strive to implement the principles of the Code of Practice and aim to establish good working relationships with parents/carers.  We carry out cognitive assessments on students on the SEND register to monitor their progress and to ascertain whether they would benefit from extra support, including in their exams.

The Learning Support Department has a multi-agency approach to supporting young people. We intend to provide every opportunity for our young people to make a successful transition into adult life.

All students have One Page Profiles which are reviewed at least twice a year. Students who access additional support have Learning Plans where their targets and additional provisions are recorded.
