Brighton Aldridge Community Academy

Learning Support

At BACA, we have a team of staff who cater for the diverse needs of our students, from SEN to Gifted and Talented, to ensure that all students are supported and able to access the National Curriculum at an appropriate level.

Students get a varying amount of curriculum time in English and mathematics, depending upon their needs.  All year 7 and 8 students have additional literacy lessons, and with the introduction of Accelerated Reader a very positive reading culture is embedded within the Academy. 

Students needing support to achieve expected standards are supported by one-to-one tutors, Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) and Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs).
