Learning Support (SEND)

At Lancing Prep Worthing, the children are taught in small classes; this means that in almost all lessons work can be differentiated to meet the needs of all the pupils. 

For those who have specific difficulties, additional support can be provided to help them access the curriculum. There is an additional charge for this service from Year 4. Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) oversees any extra support needed. Additional support with our learning support assistant is usually one-to-one with pupils withdrawn from class. The level of support is regularly reviewed and modified to suit the needs of the pupil.

Pupils with SEND achieve very well due to high levels of both academic and pastoral support, and timely individual guidanceBody

We aim to keep parents fully informed of their child’s needs and progress. Communicating effectively and regularly helps to create the best possible learning experience for our children. Occasionally, we may ask parents to obtain an Educational Psychologist’s report for their child. This helps us to understand the child’s specific needs and implement the most effective strategy to aid his or her learning.
