Learning Support

Learning Support is an essential, welcoming and active part of school life at Bredon Hill Academy.

Every teacher is a teacher of special educational needs and is responsible for identifying and supporting pupils to meet their individual needs.


The highly qualified, experienced and passionate Learning Support team are committed to developing achievement and strive to meet the needs of individual pupils.  The team of teaching assistants are strong practitioners who go above and beyond to provide social and emotional support, to nurture and to remove the barriers so that pupils want to achieve.  Additionally, the Learning Support department offers a range of interventions to address specific literacy, numeracy, language and social and emotional needs.


Achievement for All is a whole school approach to school improvement that improves the teaching and learning for all children in the school, regardless of any Special Educational Need.  All classrooms are resourced and equipped to support a range of needs. Pupils are taught and encouraged how to access resources and learn strategies to promote independence.


A smooth and successful transition into Bredon Hill Academy for our most vulnerable pupils from first schools is focused upon.  Each tutor group in year 6 has a teaching assistant attached to them so that pastoral needs are met.  Likewise, the transition from our school into the next phase of a pupil’s education is able to be met by having a close involvement with their next school.  This is achieved by close liaison, visits and where necessary, an individualised plan of support
