Learning Support


On entry to Jubilee High School, all students in Year 7 undertake a screening process. The results of this, together with data from Key Stage 2 and information from feeder schools, inform our support arrangements. In addition, we assess reading and spelling levels twice yearly, for the students who work in the department. This gives us information that informs planning for programmes of support.

Each student on the code of Practice for Special Educational Need at School Action Plus, or with a statement of SEN, has an individual education plan, reviewed six monthly. We have access to the local authority locality team, who will offer advice and support from specialist behaviour support teachers, learning and language support teachers and the school's designated educational psychologist. We also have visits from other professionals on request.

We are able to apply for access arrangements for Key Stage 3 tests and GCSE examinations, for students who meet the criteria for additional help. These include the use of a reader, scribe or extra time. In some cases, students may be permitted the use of technology in examinations. Applications are made, according to strict criteria from the examination boards, throughout the year for modular examinations, but primarily for summer GCSEs.

The staff in the department are always happy to discuss progress and any concerns that parents may have regarding general progress in school.
