Support for learning

Highly qualified staff

If pupils have difficulty with organisation or study skills, they may have one-off or ongoing lessons with our qualified Support for Learning team in order to develop confidence and improve their approach to learning.

We support pupils with a range of Additional Support Needs through small group sessions and other individual arrangements. Pupils are assessed by out visiting Educational Psychologist after a need for access arrangements has been confirmed by teachers and the Head of Departments. We can also arrange for pupils to be assessed for dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties at any stage of their school career. Fourth Form and Lower Sixth pupils sit screening tests during the autumn term.

The department consists of two full-time members of staff and one part time teacher.  The Head of Department provides specialist provision for pupils in the Junior House, Riley (ages 9-13). Senior pupils are supported by all members of the department.

Parents considering Strathallan for a child with Additional Support Needs should discuss those needs with the Registrar before registering, and provide any appropriate reports from educational psychologists or medical personnel. For more information, contact the Head of Support for Learning or the Registrar.
