Learning Courses and Programmes

  • Social Use of Language Programme (SULP) deals with issues relevant to teenagers and young adults with a range of needs including autism, language difficulties, learning difficulties and social/emotional difficulties.
  • Rapid Plus is an online software that allocates to the students specific reading and comprehension and spelling tasks for their ability. This is an innovative way for students to practise their reading skills independently, helping to build fluency and improve comprehension.
  • Lexia is a technology based reading programme that enables students of all ages and abilities to master essential reading skills. Students will sit a placement test and start off at the appropriate place for them and then work through set tasks to build and improve their skills.
  • Golden Curriculum English is used to develop key literacy skills for students who have literacy difficulties that impact upon their ability to access the mainstream school curriculum.
  • GCSE Learning Options Pathway is used with students who are identified through the options process as being in the ‘Purple Pathway’. During their time in Supported Learning, these students complete a number of courses that are more vocational in nature, designed to keep them engaged and motivated and have a focus on developing their key skills in literacy and numeracy and are designed to maximise the targeted students’ academic potential.
