Learning Support

SENCO: Miss Kat Ingle

SLT Champion: Mr Stuart Emery

At Marlwood School we have high aspiration for all our students.

We provide high quality individualised support to help students reach their full potential.

We recognise that any individual may need additional assistance with their learning at any time during their school career and consequently review our provision and student needs in line with the school assessment schedule.

We operate an ASSESS – PLAN – DO – REVIEW model that actively encourages participation of students and parents/carers in the decisions we make regarding individual students.

All of our staff have access to high quality training and support to ensure they are able to meet the needs of all our individual students.

The department has specialist teachers in Literacy and Numeracy who provide 1:1 and small group sessions to support your child. Our experienced team of Teaching Assistants support in class to enable all students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our unique meta-cognitive mentoring programme empowers our students motivating them and engaging them in making positive decisions about their education and future aspirations.

If you wish to contact us regarding your child’s learning needs please email Miss Ingle:
