Support for learning

To help us meet the needs of every learner at Bay House School, we have teams of colleagues who work together, with pupils, and with parents.

This helps us to personalise support for our learners and achieve a ‘small school feel in such a big school’. This support for all learners is co-ordinated by the Virtual School Leadership team.
