The Launch Pad

Our Support for Learning Teacher Mrs Hood, assisted by our Pupil Support Assistants, provides support and guidance for all our learners at Colinton Primary School.  Groups of children from across the school visit ‘The Launch Pad’ for lessons in Literacy and Numeracy to support them in developing their skills. These children are the “Launch Pad Learners”.

In addition to the class grids for home learning, please see below for home learning guidance, which is specific for Literacy and Numeracy, aimed at supporting our ‘Launch Pad Learners’:
