Our Learning Support staff support learning and wellbeing across the whole school and assist in the delivery of differentiated tasks for all pupils experiencing learning challenges. They work collaboratively with teachers, parents and external agencies to meet the needs of all pupils.
Getting it Right for Every Child is very important to us at Ardvreck. We assess our pupils’ wellbeing termly using the Wellbeing Web and have a follow-up protocol should any of the SHANARRI Wellbeing Indicators ‘flag up’.
Our pupils complete Reading and Spelling Standardised Tests twice a year to ensure all those requiring targeted support are being nurtured. They also complete GL assessments in Maths and English. In addition, we administer the CAT4 – a cognitive abilities test – to all new pupils and to Form 3 and Form 6 pupils to support educational development and academic attainment. We use the CAT4 to help pupils and their teachers to plan strategically and to set targets that provide the appropriate level of challenge.
