Supporting Curriculum 

At Redwood, we also have a variety of extra support for identified students

Communication (AAC)

Communication is a fundamental part of the all the curriculums offered at Redwood. We offer a wide range of support for those students with communication needs from signing to symbols to communication aids. Our aim is to ensure students can access the curriculum and reach their potential by removing any communication barriers.

Dyslexia Support

Students who are identified as being ‘At risk of dyslexia’ may receive intervention. A specialist teacher in Specific Learning Difficulties works with the student on a one-to-one basis to complete a highly personalised multi-sensory programme. The intended outcome is for the student to develop strategies to read and write independently. This will benefit the student when they enter the workforce in the future.

Subject Specific Interventions

Data is tracked throughout the year by the Curriculum Leaders to ensure that sufficient academic progress is being made in Mathematics and English. If either Curriculum Leader feels that extra intervention is required then 2 highly trained members of the Support Team, specialists in Maths and English, are assigned to either individuals, groups or classes. The support staff will then liaise with the Curriculum Leader and the Class Teacher to determine the best approach to support the students. Sometimes removal from the lesson is required to complete one to one activities or to work with a small group of 2 or 3 students struggling in specific topics. Occasionally the member of staff is assigned to a class to offer additional in lesson support on, particularly challenging topics.
