One-to-one tutoring is offered for additional support needs.

Dyslexia and early intervention
Early intervention is crucial for dyslexic pupils. After assessments pupils are offered highly systematic phonic teaching. An action plan is prepared so pupils can develop phoneme awareness. Support is provided to develop decoding basic reading and spelling skills.

Dyspraxia
Often children with co-ordination difficulties can be diagnosed with dyspraxia. Children with dyspraxia can find difficulties with fine motor skills (cutting and using a pen) or gross motor skills (running and catching a ball). Often pupils can experience difficulties with organisation, memory and processing speed. Fiona assesses and arranges one-to-one Additional Support Needs lessons.
Fiona ensures that all pupils are encouraged to manage their learning, however difficult it may be for them. After assessment Fiona tailors the sessions to the child’s individual needs.
