Additional Support
St. Andrew’s  & St. Bride’s High School St. Andrew's and St. Bride's High School Badge

The range of additional support needs catered for includes pupils with physical difficulties, visual impairment and pupils who have specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  Children who cannot take part fully in the curriculum are given Individual Educational Programmes.
The authority provides the school with Additional Needs Staff who support pupils both in class and moving from class to class.
The staff of the Support for Learning department work with departments across the school to provide co-operative teaching and advice so that the needs of all pupils are being addressed.

We are able to offer some support for pupils whose first language is not English.

The Support for Learning department works closely with associated primaries, pupil support staff and with external agencies such as Psychological Services and Specialist Services support staff.
We will contact you if we are concerned about your child’s progress.  We will invite you to come to the school and meet the Pupil Support staff or senior staff as appropriate.

If you have concerns please contact the school without delay and have the matter investigated.
