Our Learning Support Department offers a nurturing environment where, at any stage of their schooling, pupils may obtain the extra support they need to help them to work to their individual strengths and to achieve their best.
Harrodian is non-selective at the Pre-Prep entry point and caters for boys and girls of average to high academic ability. Naturally, during their schooling, some pupils are identified with possible learning difficulties, health problems and/or emotional or behavioural difficulties after admission. In these cases, our two SENCos (Special Educational Needs Coordinators) work closely with Heads of Year to initiate a process of assessment and action that will support the pupil. Some of these pupils benefit from one-to-one lessons provided by our team of specialist teachers, who liaise closely with the pupil's classroom teachers.
We are a whole school resource, working with pupils from Pre-Prep to Senior School by:
- offering targeted one-to-one support lessons for Literacy, Mathematics and cross-curricular study skills
- coordinating teachers' concerns and liaising with parents
- setting up individual action plans
- advising on educational assessments
- managing exam concessions
