Learning Support Programmes
ANS Engage is a differentiated, creative and nurturing programme for students who are new to our school or have little experience with the English language.
The aim of the programme is to ‘engage’ new students and inexperienced English speakers in the ANS approach to learning the English language.
What is involved?
Students eligible for ANS Engage will receive small group intervention dedicated solely to practicing and applying the speaking of English. These sessions are delivered by our experienced and qualified specialist English language teachers.
ANS Enhance is a personalised intervention programme for students who need extra support in the English language.
The aim of the programme is to ‘enhance’ the experience of the English language and the UK curriculum for those students who have not made expected progress.
What is involved?
Students eligible for ANS Enhance will receive a personalised intervention programme which could include 1:1, small group work or in-class support. This support is dedicated solely to practising and applying English language conventions. These sessions are delivered by our experienced and qualified specialist English language teachers.
All our students in the Foundation and Primary Phase receive a personal Lexia Core 5 account. Lexia is a fun computer-based program that supports and builds on our classroom curriculum and focus on developing English skills in six areas: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Lexia is suitable for all ages and abilities as it creates a totally individual experience for every child. The program plans activities and games that will support any areas of weakness or provide challenge in any areas of achievement.
Thai Language intervention is individual to the needs of the student. Using small group, 1:1 and in class support, students who need extra instruction in Thai Language are able to achieve.
The aim of the support is to ensure all students can make progress in Thai language, no matter of their previous experience. The intervention is delivered by our experienced specialist Thai language teacher and planned to match the level of each individual student.
After school tuition is available in both Thai and English. Thai tuition is offered in Thai language and Mathematics. English tuition is offered in literacy.
The aim of the support is to provide students with the opportunity to extend their learning in a focussed environment with a highly skilled specialist teacher while concentrating on one area of learning at a time.
At ANS, every child is an individual who is respected, valued and treated fairly. To us, fair means every student receiving what they need to succeed, not everyone receiving the same. To ensure every student can access learning to their fullest potential, we also provide holistic intervention focussing on personal and social development.
The aim of this support is to enable students to develop their whole being in order for them to make great academic progress. Interventions and support are designed to meet individual need and cover a range of areas such as managing emotions, negotiating relationships, setting goals and having self-belief.
