Knightswood Secondary School

What Are We Aiming For?
To enable pupils to become successful learners, effective contributors, responsible citizens and confident individuals.
To continue to work together with teachers, parents, carers and pupils to help address any barriers to learning
To encourage staff and pupils to value a broad range of talents, abilities and achievements.
Our aim is to share an understanding of additional support needs at Knightswood Secondary so that there is a whole school approach to supporting all pupils.

The Role of SFL
Support for Learning Staff provide a service to pupils, staff and parents or carers through:
Co-operative teaching within the subject classroom. We aim to work collaboratively with class teachers to support an individual or group of pupils.
Where appropriate, small groups of pupils may be given direct tuition by Support for Learning teachers, concentrating on enhancing literacy and numeracy skills
Curriculum Development, which involves working with subject specialists to ensure that materials are appropriate to the learning needs of all pupils.
Liaison with outside agencies.

· Associated Primary Schools

Parents' Support Group
The Parents' Support Group has been set up by the Support for Learning department to create an opportunity for parents and carers of young people who have additional support needs to get together informally with Support for Learning staff and to meet other parents and carers. It creates an opportunity for parents and carers to voice concerns about their children's learning, and to discuss steps to address barriers to learning.
Meetings will take place on Wednesday 5th October 2012, Wednesday 2012 and Wednesday 23rd January 2013, and Wednesday 1st May 2013. They will run from 6.00pm to 7.00 pm in F08, the SFL classroom. Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Greig if you have any queries.
