In the Learning Development department, two specialist teachers support children in the core subjects in two bright, attractive designated classrooms. Pupils may be taught on a 1:1 basis or in small groups. Others may be supported within the classroom. This support is offered in English, including reading, spelling, handwriting, proof reading and comprehension, and Maths. This individual attention allows the pupils to resolve any problems they may be experiencing and helps to give them the all-important feeling of confidence and achievement.
Depending on the need, a child may continue to have support throughout her time at The Granville or a short period of extra help maybe all that is required.
Close liaison is maintained between LD staff and each class teacher to agree the course of action and to monitor progress and an ‘open door’ policy to parents is encouraged.
