Support for Learning

The Support for Learning (SfL) department is committed to the provision of appropriate and effective support for all pupils including those who have an additional support need that may affect their educational progress. By providing support across the curriculum and across the years every pupil can be enabled to achieve his or her very best.

Robert Gordon’s College is committed to early Intervention and encourages referrals from teachers, parents and the pupils themselves. SfL teachers will then follow up on referrals and, through discussion and internal assessments, will determine if a pupil requires any extra support and how this should be put in place.

In S1 and S2 pupils are supported with their literacy and numeracy during English and Mathematics classes where needed, with either a qualified teacher or a classroom assistant working alongside the subject teacher to enable pupil to make the maximum progress. This method of support continues into S3 and S4 and can continue to S6 if required.
