At Addey and Stanhope School, our aim is that every student is able to achieve to the best of their ability, no matter what challenges they may face. We encourage students to take a positive view of their differences and difficulties. Help is given in developing literacy and numeracy skills as well as social and emotional skills to enable them to reach their full potential.


A range of approaches are used to support the learning and emotional needs of students. Some of the ways that we support the needs of students are: in-class support; Social Emotional Communication Classes;  mentoring; Speech and Language Therapy through our Lexis Language Resource Base;  booster reading groups; intense synthetic phonics work following the Dockside Reading Scheme; specialist partnership teaching within the mainstream classroom; literacy small groups; homework club and lunchtime quiet clubs.

Further support may be given through the range of services that our school has access to through Lewisham Authority and other outside agencies such as Children’s Mental Health Service, Looked After Children Service and the Educational Psychology Team.

Every student is viewed as an individual and will be offered a tailored learning support package to enable them to achieve and enjoy school to the full.
