Bridgnorth Endowed is a mainstream, inclusive school that is committed to helping all pupils reach their full potential and to gain confidence and independence, regardless of their additional learning needs.

Our experience is extensive as, over the years, we have successfully taught pupils with a broad range of learning difficulties and learning disabilities.

Some pupils may simply need a short catch-up programme in literacy or numeracy, and others have more complex issues. Our aim is to identify and address specific needs as early as possible.

The Team

We have an expert team of specialist teaching assistants who assess, plan and implement personalised one-to-one support for pupils with a variety of needs.

We believe that Learning Support is the responsibility of all teachers, who work closely with the Learning Support Team, to make sure they deliver exactly the right help.

Guidance and advice is also provided by the many external agencies that we have formed partnerships with and liaise with on a regular basis.

Contact with parents is very important and pupils are always involved in decisions about their learning. We hold regular meetings with individual parents and provide detailed information about their child’s progress.


The amount of help varies, depending on the degree of learning support required and, where possible, we offer the following:

  • In-class support
  • The preparation of differentiated or modified materials
  • Support for students with their homework
  • Curriculum support and help with personal organisation
  • Short-term intervention programmes covering a range of needs
