The learning and cognitive development of the students at St Philip’s School is central to all that we do. The cognition and learning team work with all teaching and support staff to ensure that cognitive barriers to learning are identified, assessed and supported according to individual needs. Our team consists of the following professionals:

Speech and Language Therapists

Occupational Therapists

Educational Psychologists

Specialist literacy and numeracy support assistants

Learning mentors

Specialist teachers for young people with Visual and Hearing impairments

The team focus on barriers to learning in the following areas:

Attention

Sensory processing and perception

Memory

Speech, Language and Communication

Reasoning

Metacognition

Emotional self-regulation

When pupils start at St Philip’s we carry out a range of assessments that consider these barriers, as well as diagnostic screening for literacy and numeracy difficulties. We work in close collaboration with the Wellbeing and Emotional Support Team, recognising how emotional, social and cognitive barriers need to be addressed holistically to ensure each student realises their full potential. We ensure that pupils taking public examinations receive the appropriate access arrangements including use of programmes such as; ‘Read and Write Gold’.

Some of the Interventions we use include:

Specialist phonics and reading programmes including: ‘Phonographix’, PASS reading enhancement programme.

Mindset Training.

Lego Therapy.

Visualising and Verbalising

Language for Thinking.

Resilience and self-regulation programmes, such as FRIENDS.

Learning process models such as, Building Learning Power and ‘Making Learning Visible’.

Cognition and learning interventions may take place at a classroom, group or individual level. All interventions are based on researched ideas and are continually evaluated for their impact.
