Learning Support

Discover the pastoral support we offer at St Paul’s and where to go when you need it most.

Transitioning to Sixth Form

At St Paul’s, we recognise the transition from Year 11, both academically and socially, can present many changes for the young people. The Sixth Form pastoral team work in close partnership with the Learning Support department to make the transition between the levels of study as smooth as possible. This is to ensure that students are provided with the best opportunity to access learning.

We ensure that no student is at a disadvantage and we seek to employ appropriate adjustments if necessary to help support with learning and assessments.

How Can Learning Support help?

Ms Wilkinson is our SenCo and is based in the Learning Support Department. Ms Wilkinson is happy to answer any questions or concerns a student (or parent/carer) might have about SEN support. Any questions around exam access arrangements such as using a laptop or having extra time will also be answered by Ms Wilkinson.

Additionally, our dedicated team of Learning Support Assistants work alongside Ms Wilkinson to support students with a range of additional learning needs including:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Speech
  • Language and Communication
  • ASD
  • ADD
  • ADHD
  • Dyspraxia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dyslexia.
