The Curriculum Support department works closely with Student Support and the Enhanced Resource for Autism to help all students to achieve to the best of their ability. Our team consists of two teachers and twelve Teaching Assistants, who support students in lessons, act as key workers and give assistance with homework, in B7 and The Base (Enhanced Resource for Autism). They also lead intervention programmes working on reading, handwriting and mind-mapping.
Curriculum Support is based in B6 and B7. The Curriculum Support classroom, B7, is equipped with seven computers with access to spelling (WordShark, Nessy) and mind-mapping (Kidspiration, Inspiration) software. It is open at breaks and lunchtimes, staffed by Teaching Assistants who are available to help with homework and support students with organisation: any students experiencing difficulty with their learning are encouraged to attend. In addition a Games Club is held in A8 every lunchtime, where students can socialise in a quiet, supported environment.
