Learning Support at Belhaven is for all pupils; those who excel, those with identified needs and everybody in between. One of the joys of Belhaven is that small class numbers ensure no pupil slips through the net and every pupil who requires support can get it.
Pupils attending “the hub” receive support with core literacy and numeracy skills, as well as emotional literacy, study skills, and support with any subject area proving a particular challenge at any given time. There is also in-class support and small group activities such as spelling, times tables and typing clubs on offer.
The Learning Support department works closely with external agencies including, but not limited to, speech and language therapists, an educational psychologist and a counsellor who visits the school once a week.
Learning Support is about enabling our pupils to be the best they can be and giving them the skills and strategies they need to excel in an increasingly demanding world.
“Support for Learning is weaved through
the whole school’s approach to education
and the children’s development”
