The Pupil Support department consists of thirteen members of staff all dedicated to ensuring that the young people who attend Clydeview Academy are able to access all aspects of the curriculum. We believe that in a fully inclusive school, barriers to learning are identified, addressed and removed. We work in partnership with the young people in our school who require additional support and their parents and carers.
The support assistants within the department provide one to one support in classes throughout the school. They use their expertise to work collaboratively with class teachers in encouraging hard work and effort amongst pupils in the classroom.
The department are dedicated to supporting improvements in numeracy, literacy and health and wellbeing. This is reflected through the clubs and innovative practice evident within Pupil Support.
Some of the clubs which can be accessed in Pupil Support include:
- Lunchtime Club: The Lunchtime Club is supervised by a group of S6 pupils and runs daily. Activities such as board games; arts and crafts and computer games are available.
- S1/2 Homework Club: The Homework Club provides pupils in S1 and S2 a quiet space to complete homework assignments during lunchtimes on Wednesdays.
- Dyslexia Drop In: The Dyslexia Drop In sessions run every Friday lunchtime in the Pupil Support classroom. Pupils from all year groups are welcome to attend. Senior pupils are on hand to provide advice or help with any concerns that young people with dyslexia may have.
