5 Barriers to Learning

5 barriers to learning

Life experiences and emotional issues can impact on the progress a child is making.
The main barriers identified as impacting on a child, leading them to make less good progress than would be expected are:

wellbeing concerns
attendance
significant learning difficulties
a child's motivation
parental expectations

We work hard as a school to ensure attendance is as high as possible. We have a creative curriculum to inspire and motivate children to learn. We work with parents to help them in supporting their child's learning and expecting good progress. We have a very strong SEN team working with children with learning difficulties. We run social support groups, anxiety support groups, expression through art groups etc. to help children who are facing particularly challenging life experiences.
