Learning Support


All students are valued and encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability.

Learning Support at JFC covers a wide area. The following groups are offered support in their studies:

- Students with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN)

- Students whose first language is not English, and who need support in learning English

- Students with special needs who are not on the SEN register but who need support in some of their lessons, especially with literacy

- Students with emotional and/or behavioral difficulties which hinder learning

- Students with physical disabilities


How do we support these students?

Provision to meet the variety of special needs in the college is made through:

- One-to-One tuition

- Differentiation by the teacher within lessons

- Intensive reading programs

- Withdrawal from lessons, or in-class support, for students whose first language is not English.

- The opportunity for more able students to take part in extension classes and activities, including provision out of school

- Pastoral Support Officers and Learning Mentors who give students individual attention to help them improve and overcome any barriers to their learning

- The programs for all students with additional needs are carefully planned. “Inclusion plans and procedures are excellent, enabling true equality of opportunity for all students".
