London Academy of Excellence Tottenham is committed to offering students a learning experience that is challenging and rewarding and that prepares them well to make applications to university. LAE Tottenham is keenly aware that addressing individual learning requirements is crucial to each sixth former’s success, and all teachers are committed to ensuring that lessons challenge and support all sixth formers. LAE Tottenham is committed to providing Learning Support (LS) to sixth formers who are likely to benefit from it.
LAE Tottenham takes a proactive approach to identifying and supporting sixth formers who are likely to benefit from Learning Support; students with previously identified Special Educational Needs are supported, where appropriate. We also recognise that we may have to identify and support sixth formers whose high academic achievements have hitherto masked a likelihood of benefitting from our support. Learning Support may be applicable to any sixth formers with a diagnosis of a SEND (Special Educational Need & Disability) but it can also be made available to those without. Teachers are trained to identify characteristics of sixth formers who are likely to benefit from Learning Support and a referral system ensures that their observations are followed up. LAE Tottenham maintains a register of sixth formers receiving Learning Support and tracks their academic performance.
The responsibility of SEND and Learning Support Lead is centred on ensuring that all students with potential barriers to learning are supported to enable them to make academic progress at least in line with all.
