The Learning Enhancement Department’s commitment is to remove barriers to learning for our students. We use a flexible approach to identifying barriers to learning and wellbeing based on the individual students’ strengths and needs. We work alongside our learners, their families and teachers to develop plans to empower our students to understand more about their learning styles and potential.
Some of the support available includes subject tuition, specialist literacy programmes such as Steps, online learning support and offering a supported learning space for those students who benefit from extra curriculum support timetabled into their day. We continue to offer Special Assessment Conditions for assessment and exams with a skilled team available as Exam Assistants.
Led by Mrs Julie Mulcahy, the department is supported our team of 6 teacher aides, and a SAC coordinator who books and organises readers and writers for students special assessment conditions.
Students with questions about their learning should talk to their form teachers, subject teachers and their Deans in the first instance. These conversations are often helpful in finding solutions for a particular subject area. However, if the concerns are ongoing or across a number of subjects then students can make an appointment with Mrs Julie Mulcahy, through the WGHS app under the student services tab.
