SEND pupils learn their talents and abilities in a supportive atmosphere alongside their peers. Pupils work in small groups to address the challenges that they face in their learning using various study techniques and practices.
Our SENDCo Patricia Pieri – Assistant Head (Student Support) oversees all pupils with Specific Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). We are able to support children with mild to moderate learning needs in a mainstream environment. Most children attend a before or after school club and continue with regular small class sizes and specialist teachers. Some pupils are invited to attend Learning Lab.
Learning Lab support class is timetabled during the time where the Year group would have an additional language twice weekly. Pupils attend for a variety of reasons; some pupils at PPS have Specific Learning Difficulties like Dyslexia or Dyspraxia, whilst some find other areas of the curriculum challenging, with number, spatial reasoning or social situations proving particularly difficult for them.
