Here at Scots we accept that a number of our students require support if they are to achieve their academic potential. Students diagnosed with Specific Learning Disabilities or Deficits i.e. Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia will have an Individual Support Plan (ISP) prepared for them outlining strategies that classroom teachers can use to support these students.
In Years 7, 8 and 9 these students have the support of a trained teacher aide (in a range of core classes) or another qualified teacher (Maths) in a number of their lessons each week.
In Year 7 to 10 student may apply in consultation with the Head of Learning Support, MYP Coordinator and Principal to join a dedicated Learning Support class in lieu of one of the student’s option classes.
To ensure that students can achieve their academic potential in assessment situations a range of support strategies may be included as part of a their ISP. 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.
