Whilst many factors contribute to the range of difficulties experienced by our young people, we believe that much can be done to overcome them by parents/carers, teachers/learning support mentors, associated agencies and students working together. Students are encouraged to talk about their difficulties and help each other to set realistic targets.
Students will require additional interventions and are provided with opportunity for withdrawal sessions which cover individual learning programmes in literacy, numeracy, social/emotional development, speech and language/communication, self-regulation and motivation support.
Some students will require additional support from an outside agency; where further assessment may be required and additional intervention implemented.
Roselyn House School aims to develop and improve literacy and numeracy skills of all students. Therefore, the individual special needs of students require identification as quickly as possible upon entry into the school in order that help can be provided. These needs are carefully analysed through assessment before an intensive teaching programme is planned and developed to suit the specific problems and difficulties that individuals within the school experience.
Following a student's six week initial assessment a plan is drawn up to implement specific support, strategies and targets to meet an individual's learning/personal needs. This includes: An IEBP, Learning Support Plan, Behaviour Management/ Positive Handling Plan. Progress and intervention is discussed with the student and s/he is given the opportunity to inform his/her own learning through Learning Goals.
Termly reports are collated in Annual Reviews and shared. Students are assessed across all subjects and progress is tracked against Attainment Targets.
