Fulneck School offers an inclusive education for children with a range of abilities. Some Fulneck students benefit from extra support from the expert teaching staff in our Learning Support Unit (LSU).
The aim of the LSU is to support pupils with special learning needs, providing teaching programmes and strategies to allow access to the curriculum at a level commensurate with intellectual ability.
Our Learning Support Unit caters for a wide variety of individual needs. Our main area of expertise is Dyslexia, where we have been formally awarded a CReSTeD (Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils) DU status.
As a category DU registered School, Fulneck offers a specialist unit with one-to-one tuition as well as support for students with learning needs in all areas of the curriculum. The pupils can take advantage of individual and small group tuition from experienced specialist teachers, multi-sensory teaching methods and continuity of teaching and support throughout their school career.
Our pupils have access to specialist computer software in a dedicated unit to ensure a relaxed, safe and secure learning environment. In addition, skilled Learning Support Assistants assist some pupils within key areas of the curriculum.
We are proud of the achievements of our learning support students, many of whom obtain excellent GCSE and A Level results and move on to a wide range of careers and Higer Education.
About Sally Moore (Head of Learning Support)
Sally Moore, Head of Learning Support at Fulneck School began her teaching career as a VSO volunteer teaching English in Kiribati. Sally spent 2 year on a coral atoll in the middle of the pacific. Sally has worked in many different countries teaching, she once spent a summer teaching flying trapeze at an American summer camp.
Sally joined Fulneck School in September 2019, Sally has said ‘I love the family feel to the school, and the way the adults know their children so well. When I walk past classrooms, the sound I hear most is laughter and I never hear teachers shouting. Children with SEND can feel a constant pressure to keep up, move on, do more… but here (Fulneck School) there is space to breathe, time to figure out what works best and time to be known and loved as a unique individual. In the Learning Support Unit I get to implement learning in the best way to suit the individual student, be that on a wobble board or outside with fun games.
