Support for Learning

The special provision for pupils with SEND and EAL is excellent. ISI report 2015 ~ to view a full copy of the ISI report click here.

Sibford’s Support for Learning Programme (SfL) has a well established reputation for enabling pupils with various specific learning difficulties ~ including dyslexia, dyscalculia and development coordination disorder ~ to achieve their full potential.

Pupils follow the mainstream curriculum along with their peers and benefit from a wide choice of options to suit their needs. Individual additional support programmes in literacy, numeracy and study skills are also provided. This tuition takes place in small groups and is usually in place of a modern foreign language.

Pupils are further supported by the knowledge that teachers of all subjects appreciate their particular needs and work with their specialist teachers to overcome any problems in the classroom.

In the Sixth Form, pupils receive individual tutorials to help them make the best of their A Level studies. Help is also available when it comes to making their University choices and applications. The pleasing results, and subsequent careers followed by our pupils, show that conditions such as dyslexia need be no bar to success.
