At Hazel Wood High School, we offer a range of support interventions for pupils who may find parts of being in high school difficult.
We have a team of trained support staff, who focus on specialist areas such as literacy, numeracy and social skills.
We also provide additional support for pupils where English is not their first language through specialist staffing and work with the Curriculum and Language Access Service (CLAS).
Support can be provided in lots of different ways. We have a room within school where targeted 1:1 or small groups sessions can be delivered and activities at social times can take place.
We also work with pupils in timetabled lessons to provide a personalised approach to accessing different subjects.
Pupils who find school a challenge, either accessing the learning or socially and emotionally, are identified and checked to see if there is a specific Learning Difficulty that we need to explore.
Families who also have a concerns regarding the development of their child can also contact school to discuss their worry and we can work together to investigate this and work to find a solution in partnership, to support every learner, looking at the use of outside agencies, where required.
