A small number of pupils will need extra support in their academic development for some or all of their time in the Pre-Prep. This might be due to the child being gifted and talented, dyslexic, having speech and language issues etc. Early intervention, where extra support is required, ensures the best possible outcome for the child. These children may be identified through in-school assessments, parental or staff concerns, or from information from the previous school. This curriculum support is provided by experienced teachers of Additional Educational Needs (AEN).
AEN teachers liaise carefully with teaching staff and parents ensuring they are kept up to date with information about each child. Regular meetings are held between the AEN teachers in the Pre-Prep, Junior and Senior Schools to ensure continuity and the transfer of information and ideas, especially as children move between the different sections of the school.
