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. In these cases, our SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) works closely with the Head of the Pre-Prep School to initiate a process of assessment and action that will support the pupil.
Many of these pupils benefit from targeted one-to-one lessons provided by our team of specialist teachers, who liaise closely with the pupil's classroom teachers. As they are very young, the support teacher collects and returns Pre-Prep students to and from the classroom, which gives the child time to chat and relax before their bespoke, multi-sensory support session.
The Pre-Prep SENCo is also available to advise on external educational assessments, support networks and learning resources.
