Scots College Middle School Learning Support

Learning Support

Here at Scots we accept that a number of our boys require support if they are to achieve their academic potential. Boys diagnosed with Specific Learning Disabilities or Deficits i.e. Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia will have and Individual Education Plan (IEP) prepared for them outlining strategies that classroom teachers can use to support these students.

In Years 7, 8 and 9 these boys have the support of a trained teacher aide (in English, Humanities and Science) or another qualified teacher (Maths) in a number of their lessons each week.

In Year 10 boys may choose in consultation with the Head of Learning Support to join a dedicated Learning Support class in lieu of one of the boy’s option classes.

To ensure that boys can achieve their academic potential in assessment situations a range of support strategies may be included as part of a boy’s IEP. This support may include the provision of Extra Time for assignments, tests and exams; using their Computer instead of handwriting for assessments, assignments and exams; the provision of a Reader/Writer in tests and exams.
