Support for Learning

Every teacher has a responsibility to support the learning of all pupils in their class. The type of support offered will vary according to the needs of pupils. This includes consideration given to children who have a disability, children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, children with learning difficulties of a specific or general nature, children who are exceptionally able, those who demonstrate underachievement relating to gender issues, children whose learning has been interrupted through absence or illness, bilingual children who have English as an additional language, travelling children and those children whose family circumstances impact on attendance and learning.

If a parent considers that his or her child has additional support needs and wishes to make enquiries about this they should contact the head teacher.

The teacher for St Ninian’s Primary is Mrs A Coyle.

Further help for children experiencing difficulty can be sought from the Psychological Service. The educational psychologist supports children whose learning or behaviour gives cause for concern. Parents are always consulted before the school enlists the assistance of personnel from the Psychological Service.
