Prior Park Preparatory school is a CreSTeD school. The Learning Support Department within the school aims to ensure that children with mild to moderate dyslexia, dyscalculia and other associated difficulties reach their full social and educational potential, by setting individual learning programmes which frequently monitor their needs and changing situations.
The Learning Support Department supports pupils with:
- Motor Movement
- Study Skills
We aim to find the preferred learning style of each pupil and incorporate a variety of multi-sensory methods in an effort to fully reinforce the work undertaken. We are a well-equipped department with a comprehensive variety of resources. We believe it is important to keep abreast of new developments, both in the much-researched field of dyslexia and the relatively new field of dyscalcuila, and always consider if new innovations can be successfully used to the benefit of the pupils.
In addition to working with pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties, the Learning Support Department also works with pupils whose first language is not English. We are very well resourced to work with pupils in individual and small group sessions, who undertake English as an Additional Language course.
