The Study Support department seeks to underpin the learning of all pupils who have Specific Learning Difficulties or those who are developing their study skills, such that all pupils at every academic level within Kingswood School reach their full potential. The department aims to build self-esteem in pupils, fostering independence by providing effective strategies both to address any difficulties and to move on from them with confidence.
The team also liaises with academic and pastoral staff, advising and guiding them so that the individual needs of pupils on the Study Support department’s register receive support whenever and wherever possible. They work closely with parents, carers and outside specialists as appropriate. The Study Support department also looks beyond the pupils on its register and offers learning support to all pupils within the School.
