The Learning Support Department at The Elms is here to provide help when additional, specialist provision is necessary to build confidence, help pupils reach their full potential and flourish.

We work very closely with the teaching staff. It is so important to identify needs early. We do this through multi-level assessments, so that we can address barriers to learning rapidly and effectively for each pupil. Our experienced and specialist teachers address the specific needs of the pupils through an individual, multi-sensory programme of work.

At the heart of the department is a genuine and serious desire to see all of our pupils thrive, providing them with skills and strategies to support them throughout the school and beyond.
