Learning Support

Director of Learning - Mrs S Jackson Email

Poynton High School’s Learning Support Team is a highly experienced resource. We aim to provide the best possible support for all our students in their journey through our school, ensuring progress and achievement. We are a fully inclusive school and much of our support is delivered within the mainstream curriculum. However where appropriate we can adapt the timetable to provide extra literacy and numeracy. This is delivered through the English and Mathematics teams and is supported by Lead Learning Support Assistants in literacy and numeracy. We also have a Lead Learning Support Assistant who works within the Science Team. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs where we aim to enhance social skill and provide a hub for students to access support during lunch times. Mr Magrath also works in our team as a Specialist Teacher of Specific Learning Difficulties. All Students on our Learning Support Register are assigned a nominated Learning Support Assistant who develops a close relationship with their student and full understanding of their learning needs. In turn they support teaching staff in delivering bespoke quality first teaching. The next three years will see many changes to the way that Learning support is delivered to SEND students nationally. We celebrate the increased involvement of parents and students in planning their learning at Poynton High School.
