Learning Support

Thetford Grammar School is an inclusive community and our aim is to provide an education that to the best of our abilities, can cater for all children, who meet the requirements of our entrance procedures. We recognise that some individuals will have particular needs which we will endeavour to address. We seek to do this by:

  • Identifying pupils` educational needs on entry, through baseline testing and an assessment of learning characteristics
  • Ensuring that all staff are aware of the needs and characteristics of all pupils in the school, highlighting those with particular issues
  • Producing where necessary intervention plans to support the learning of a pupil and suggest appropriate teaching strategies
  • Making available the opportunity for individual lessons with a specialist teacher, invoiced separately to parents / guardians
  • Providing all staff with relevant INSET


“The level of individual support offered at Thetford Grammar is exceptional, as is the willingness of teachers to give their time to those needing something extra- for whatever reason”. CReSTeD Report 2013

“Mainstream lessons observed were extremely well differentiated and structured. Support lessons were also a delight to observe, with an easy relationship noticed between pupil and teacher”. CReSTeD Report 2013

“The inclusive EYFS setting works well with outside agencies to provide for children with additional needs.” ISI Inspection Report, 2012
