Children enter a new school from different backgrounds and with different needs. They learn in different ways, at different speeds, and with different language abilities. All of this can impact their confidence as well as their learning, so at Green Shoots we:
Green Shoots offers English as an Additional Language (EAL) to students who are new to English as a language of instruction or who have learned in English before but still require some extra help to fully access the curriculum.
The school will inform parents of their child’s EAL needs and will explain why a decision has been made. EAL support is mandatory if deemed necessary by the school.
SEN refers to a wide range of support needs that may be academic, social, emotional, physical, or a combination of these. Students with mild special educational needs are supported in class by their teacher and with guidance from our counsellor. Those with more substantive needs may require an Individual Learning Plan (ILP). If this is true, parents will be consulted throughout the process of assessment and identification of needs, and additional support may be provided outside of class.
Green Shoots is able to meet mild to moderate SEN provision but does not have the capacity to help children with severe learning support needs. If we cannot meet a child’s needs, staff will discuss alternatives upon application to the school.
