Emotional well being and emotional literacy impact significantly on a student’s academic achievement and developmental progress. These are important factors that affect our ability to reach our maximum potential.

Specific Learning Differences [SpLD] is an umbrella term that refers to a difference or difficulty with aspects of learning. A pupil may have one of these independently or they can co-exist as part of wider profile. SpLD exist on a continuum from mild to moderate through to severe. The blend of learning issues and their severity is unique for every individual, but they all are connected to the way the brain process and expresses information.
