The Willink Learning Support Centre aims to provide all groups of students with structured and coordinated support to overcome barriers to learning caused by personal, social, emotional or behavioural difficulties. We firmly believe that education provides students with the foundation for a successful life and recognise that this must be tailored to individual needs and circumstances.
All students at The Willink School are provided with a rich set of learning experiences and opportunities which begin in the classroom, extend to the wider school, and the local community beyond that. However, we recognise that some students will find accessing these opportunities challenging.
Support is provided to students and families via different approaches and covers a range of issues:Curriculum
|Special Educational Needs||Literacy||Emotional Literacy||Behaviour Management||Pastoral|
|Liaison with external agencies||Financial hardship||Relationships||Attendance|
Parents and carers have a vital role in ensuring that the individual needs of their children are being met; their rights and responsibilities are respected; and they have an active role in decisions made about approaches taken to meet these needs.
Our ultimate goal is that all students are integrated in lessons with their peers in order to fulfil their potential. We will provide individual support and coaching; group support; targeted support in lessons; pre and post-school support as appropriate to enable and empower students to become confident individuals and effective contributors to our society.
The Willink School is committed to ensuring equal opportunities for all members of the school community and actively promotes the social inclusion agenda. No student should be disadvantaged by their class, gender, race, religion or any disability. Every child is an individual and every child does matter.
The Learning Support Centre is located in the G Block and can be accessed by all students.
