Support in school
The Resource Base team support individual students in mainstream lessons, clarifying and explaining any new language. We complete student support sheets every lesson, enabling us to check on any reinforcement that may be required. We also make sure all home learning is written down correctly and understood.
Our Communication Support Assistants use British Sign Language (BSL) and Sign Supported English (SSE) in the classroom, when required, to help our student’s access the curriculum.
The specially designed tutorial rooms within the Resource Base are used for one-to-one tutorials to allow for the preparation and reinforcement of the curriculum as well as the development of literacy, vocabulary and communication skills. These tutorials can also take place before tutor registration time in the mornings, and at the end of the school day. If applicable, and only in close liaison with parents, students can also be withdrawn from mainstream lessons for additional support.
