Richard De Clare Community Academy

With a Nursery for 3 to 4 year olds.

Dream Big, Work Hard, Believe and Achieve.



Children’s progress at school is regularly monitored and parents are kept informed at parents meetings. If we feel that children require additional support, we will arrange a meeting between the class teacher and the child’s parents to discuss our concerns. If you, as the child’s parents have any concerns then you can also request a meeting to discuss the next steps.


If a child needs help over and above that which is normally available within the curriculum differentiation, the class teacher and Learning Support Assistants will provide additional support.


Additional support may include:


  • differentiated learning materials
  • some extra group or individual support
  • support from a Learning Support Assistant


We also identify children who are making exceptional progress and additional challenges are provided for more able children. The school compiles a register of children who are considered to be gifted and/or talented. Parents are informed of this and will be invited to attend a meeting with the class teacher to discuss how the school is meeting these additional needs.


We aim to work closely with parents, involving them at all times in their children’s education.
