Learning Support (LS)

The Learning Support Base aims to use the best interventions at the right time to ensure students feel secure, challenged and motivated in all Learning Zones.

The Support process begins before students’ arrival in Yr 7 – when the Transition Team and Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) talk to primary colleagues to identify Yr 6 pupils who may need extra support. Parents are encouraged to visit the Academy to find out how we can meet their children’s needs and over the summer term identified students are invited onto programmes to support transition to secondary school.

At the beginning of the first term the whole of Yr 7 is assessed for reading and spelling age. Pupils’ areas of strength are then identified by Cognitive Abilities Testing (CATs) which also gives a clear indication of what pupil’s individual support needs will be. If necessary pupils can be further screened for dyslexia and pupils with severe difficulties are assessed by a Literacy Specialist. At Key Stage 3 all students complete a programme to improve literacy and numeracy ability. These personalised programmes are designed to ‘top – up’ the skills of those students whose literacy levels need boosting, whilst providing increasingly challenging activities for more able students. As well as providing in-class support for high need and statemented students, the Base also provides small groups offering intensive reading, writing and numeracy interventions. At the beginning of September 2012 members of the Learning Support Team trained in Read Write Inc – a strategy which will enable BMA to deepen our support for students who are having difficulties developing basic literacy.

Key Stage 4 students are offered a weekly Study Skills group to help with coursework completion or revision strategy. Students with a statement continue to receive individual and in-class support and some will be assessed for special arrangements in exams.

Key stage 5 pupils can self refer for further Study Skills support – and are encouraged to use the ‘Learning Lounge’ drop-in facility. Regular support sessions can also be organised according to individual student need.

We work in partnership with professionals from a range of external agencies to organise specialist support (e.g. Educational Psychology/Autism Outreach Team) where needed.


is inevitable in the wireless industry, with smaller players bulking up to better compete against market leaders AT and Verizon Wireless. Such brandon marshall mens jersey thinking led to Tokyo based Softbank investing in third place Sprint last year and AT failed attempt to acquire T Mobile in 2011.

The merger with MetroPCS is intended to give the louis vasquez mens authentic jersey combined company the resources to challenge Sprint for third place and better compete with AT and Verizon.

it is that way I suppose it’s because everyone eats. But for whatever reason, we all wind up chewing on a lot of rather unsavory food for thought in youth jabaal sheard jersey this area. Mere opinions about nutrition chris conte youth authentic jersey are propounded as if gospel, and then milked for russell bodine womens jersey all they’re worth in the marketing of books, lotions, potions, programs, and platforms. Which brings us back to dairy. A Google search of "dairy and health" today yields 139 million sites. Limit that search to news only, and you still get preston brown youth jersey more than 58,000 returns. Search "milk and health" instead, and more than 300 million sites return. Plug in just "milk" and you get upwards of 500 million sites, although admittedly some of those are about Harvey Milk. But not many. For the most part, this large, churning vat of opinion represents the selective representation of diverging nate irving mens authentic jersey scientific information about dairy intake.
