The right support for everyone
Every child is unique. By learning in lively, stimulating groups and with the support of dedicated and passionate teachers, we help each child to achieve their best, whatever their individual strengths or abilities.
Learning support at BGS is for any children who may struggle with elements of their academic studies. This could be due to specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, physical disability or having English as an additional language. Our learning support team is dedicated to finding ways to allow these students to achieve their full potential.
Learning Support also offers more general support to our students, providing a place where anyone can come to discuss concerns or request help. All students are monitored and assessed by form tutors and others members of the academic team throughout their school life.
Children’s learning profiles are analysed at specific stages throughout their school career and any possible vulnerabilities are followed up with initial diagnostic assessments. The results of these will be discussed with parents to consider more formal assessments if appropriate.
At all levels of the school, one-to-one specialist support in literacy and numeracy can be arranged to take place during school hours and in the Infant and Junior School all classes have TA support.
If you are already aware that your child has specific learning needs, please do let us know when you get in touch about your child joining BGS. We can then arrange for you to meet with our Learning Support department and ensure that we can provide appropriate support, starting with the entrance process and continuing throughout your child's time at BGS.
