At the RGS, the aim is to promote the well-being and learning
potential of each and every student.
School acknowledges that all students learn at different rates and have varying
needs throughout their education. The
aim is to equip the boys with the necessary skills so that they realise their
full potential. The Learning Support Department
works closely with all teachers to ensure that the specific needs of every
student in the School’s care are met.
The Head of Learning Support oversees the assistance provided
for boys, which covers areas such as spelling booster classes, handwriting,
touch typing, reading for meaning, writing organisation, examination technique
and revision strategies, and is supported in this role by members of the
English Department who have specific areas of expertise.
Support is provided for students after consultation with
parents and members of the teaching and pastoral staff and is undertaken in an
unobtrusive but highly effective way so that students are able to address any
areas of challenge they face in a structured and encouraging way. Any intervention is regularly monitored to
ensure that its level and content continues to allow students to develop their
learning. It is managed through either
individual or small group sessions, where the focus is on developing confidence
and formulating strategies to enable boys to maximise their potential and fully
enjoy their learning.
