We have a wide variety of clubs and activities for pupils within the Learning Support Department that run at lunch time alongside 5×60 and E3.
Providing a safe and secure environment at lunch time to build pupils confidence, communicate and socialise with others.
The reading club is a scheme we offer at school which is for students who need extra support with their literacy skills or who just want to practise their reading. It helps improve reading ability, developing self-confidence. Held at lunchtime for just twenty minutes or so, students attend once a week and work with an LSA who will help and guide them with reading.
Students tackle problems individually, in pairs or groups. The opportunity to develop conversational skills and confidence is integral to this club’s rationale. Activities are a range of problem solving activities both mental and physical.
The Learning Support Department is available to “chill out” at break and lunchtime. Students can come along to chat to others, ask for homework advice, play board games or just enjoy a calm atmosphere rather than going outside.
All these activities are led and run by teaching staff /members of the LS Team on a voluntary basis.
