About Us

The Inclusion Team: Learning Support

At Western, we understand that all children are individuals and that they learn in different ways.  We believe in being proactive and seek to identify any learning difficulties children may have as early as possible.

The Learning Support branch of the Inclusion Team is passionate about helping children fulfil their potential and provides additional and different methods, resources and activities to help support children with their specific learning needs.

Our provision includes intensive 1 to 1 support and we have a range of interventions and programmes which can be tailored to a child's individual requirements.

We use a multi-sensory, kinaesthetic teaching approach to engage the children and embed learning. This would include using:

  • a variety of mediums (sand, foam, play dough, paint, chalks, etc.)
  • different materials (paper, card, felt, foil, sandpaper, etc.)
  • magnetic boards, gel boards, chalk boards
  • physical and environmental objects (a bag of shopping or photos of street/shop signs)
  • songs, rhymes and actions
  • a wide variety of books to encourage and foster a love of reading
  • computer programmes
  • Ipad apps
  • base learning on individual interests

We aim to:

  • instil a love of learning
  • build confidence
  • empower children with strategies and skills so that they become effective learners
