Learning support is available throughout the school. Girls in the younger classes may receive literacy or numeracy lessons in small groups from specialist support teachers, who work in close liaison with class teachers. Further up the school, support in English and Mathematics continues in class on a regular timetabled basis.
Individual lessons for specific learning needs are also available, at an extra charge, following discussion with parents. Pupils may have an assessment by an Educational Psychologist, whose recommendations are taken into account in the planned provision to meet the child’s needs.
Individual Education Plans are used for pupils whose progress either causes concern, or does not correlate with their identified potential.
St Hilda’s generally has a significant proportion of pupils who are very able. To meet these girls’ individual needs, lesson planning includes specific differentiation and opportunity for further study.
