Supportive Education

At Dover Court we pride ourselves on the educational support we provide, which plays a huge role in teaching empathy, compassion and interpersonal skills to all children at the school.


Our programmes for supportive education are designed to benefit every child at Dover Court. Our specially designed learning pathways enable children to access a tailored curriculum and focus on outcomes for all students regardless of a child's level of ability. Our programmes also support academic as well as social skills progress.

Why Dover Court for my child?

Our learning pathways for supportive education offer comprehensive programmes for children with special needs. They provide an environment in which pupils of all abilities are able to flourish to a degree that might not be possible elsewhere.  We have a range of services on site including, learning support, therapy and support facilities.

Benefit to all

Each class within our learning pathways are twinned with a mainstream class for events such as assemblies, field trips, sports days, concerts, and various social activities.

The children are also integrated for academic subjects where appropriate. This inclusive approach lets all children benefit from the strengths of a team of highly professional special needs, mainstream, English as a Additional Language (EAL) and education support teachers. 

Ages taught in our supportive education programme

The supportive education programme provides teaching for children from the ages of 3 to 18. 

An integrated approach and supportive environment

A great benefit of supportive education is the integration of children into main-school activities. This can be incredibly valuable to both mainstream and supportive education children by bringing them together as equal learners, whilst at the same time ensuring children receiving support, do so in an classroom environment that enables them to access learning in a positive way.

Life skills

The integrated approach to teaching in the supportive education pathways provides opportunities for each child to interact with peers and adults of varying personalities, backgrounds, abilities, interests and ages. This social education goes hand in hand with the life skills classes that every child participates in, which cover topics such as healthy eating, conflict resolution, keeping safe, and first aid.
