Support for Learning

SENCO - Mrs C Atkinson

Mission Statement

Our purpose is to support the academy aims of "Achieving life in all its fullness", by delivering Wave 2 and Wave 3 Interventions in accordance with Government policy.


Support for Learning (SFL) has a team of skilled and specialist trained staff who are able to offer various tailored programmes to either individuals or groups depending on their pastoral and educational needs. We support learning in the classroom by providing additional one-to-one or group work, and run specialised literacy, numeracy and social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) interventions for students who need support to achieve their full educational potential, whatever that potential may be. We work with a wide range of students, from those needing pastoral support, EASL, students with SEND, and Gifted and Talented students. We also provide support the learning across the curriculum with Teaching Assistants working with targeted students in all subject areas
