Learning Support Services

At Methodist College, we strive to provide the highest possible standard of support for pupils with special needs. The Learning Support Department consists of a number of staff including our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Learning  Support Mentors,  Classroom and General Assistants. To care for each pupil’s specific requirements; these include educational, physical, behavioural, emotional and social needs. Each pupil is assigned a Learning Support Mentor or a Classroom or General  Assistant whose job is to make the child feel included, comfortable and happy within the school environment, and to help them with any problems that may arise throughout the school day.

The Learning Support Department ensures that pupils with special needs are catered for through individual educational plans which are created, monitored and evaluated by specially trained staff. This process involves close co-operation between pupils, their teachers and parents. Support is also available, when necessary, through classroom and general assistants. 

 The Literacy Service Newsletter is packed full of good ideas help inspire, support and challenge all our young people to be the best they can be.
