Class Teachers work closely with the Senior School Learning Support staff to ensure pupils experiencing specific difficulties are well-supported.
The support offered is tailored to address individual needs, this may take place within the classroom setting where teaching staff collaborate with Class Teachers to allow pupils access to the curriculum at his/her own pace and level of ability. Where more specific programmes of intervention are being implemented children may come to the Support for Learning base. Here we have a range of supplementary resources which encourage learners to develop skills through a variety of learning styles.
We have adopted a whole-school approach to teaching study and revision skills and these can be reinforced, together with individualised support strategies, at lunchtime or after-school sessions to meet particular needs as they arise.

Following on from Dyslexia Awareness Week, Dyslexia Scotland has launched a new website called Dyslexia Unwrapped, where children and young people with dyslexia can visit for support and advice.
