Pastoral and Inclusion

At Ivanhoe, we believe that every child deserves personalised support, guidance and encouragement to ensure they achieve their academic potential and grow into well-rounded citizens. We have created a robust structure of support for every student tailored to their individual needs. We are very proud of the care, guidance and support provided by our Inclusion Team.

 

Meeting the Needs of All Pupils

 

We know that young people have different needs and abilities, learn in different ways and at a different pace. We meet the full range of these abilities through flexible grouping, differentiated schemes of work and tailored activities so that all students can achieve. Progress is carefully monitored and tracked over the three years. Our building and resources are well suited to meet the needs of children with disabilities.

 

Tutor Groups

At Ivanhoe our team of Form Tutors are at the heart of our learning community. Your child will join a tutor group and it is usual for the same tutor to remain with the group throughout their time at Ivanhoe. The tutor is the person in school who knows most about your child and will oversee their personal and academic development. Our tutor groups are smaller than our teaching groups and are made up of a mix of students from Year 7, 8 and 9. This means that our new Year 7 students will get to know students from other years straight away and our older students have an important responsibility to make every Year 7 student feel welcome and help them settle in quickly.

 

Learning Support Department (SEND)

We work with students who need extra help with their learning to ensure that students can access the same curriculum as others in the year group wherever possible.

To enable this to happen the Learning Support Department provides, amongst many other things:

  • A resource area with specially trained and experienced teachers and support Assistants.
  • Extra small group or one-to-one support in the classroom
  • Specialist staff who work with groups of students for short-term Intervention projects such as anxiety management, low self-esteem and core skill development.
  • Break and Lunch time provision in our Learning Zone
  • A comprehensive mentoring programme for all SEN students with a dedicated member of staff assigned to each family
  • Strong links with a number of outside agencies and partners who provide specialist opportunities and activities.

“The curriculum is adjusted well to support the most vulnerable students.” Ofsted Nov 2010

 

Student Support Team

We have a dedicated student support team in school who work in partnership with staff, students, parents, carers and outside agencies to ensure good behaviour for learning is maintained. The team are highly experienced in dealing with a range of behavioural and emotional difficulties and can offer a range of strategies to removes barriers to learning and ensure that students are successful both in the classroom and in life. We are proud of our counselling facilities and are able to provide both an external and an in-house service for our students.
