Children who require Learning Support in either literacy or numeracy may visit our Learning Support teacher for either one or two lessons each week, depending upon a child’s individual needs.
The Deputy Head oversees children who either need Learning Support or who have been identified as Gifted and Talented. The Deputy Head will liaise closely with parents and teachers to ensure that every child's individual needs are being met.
Moon Hall is a separate specialist school operating within the grounds of Belmont School. Moon Hall has four classes of children who have dyslexia and it is able to draw upon all the resources and facilities at Belmont.
Pupils at Moon Hall integrate with Belmont children for Games, assemblies, lunch and break times. They also take part in many of the school's extra-curricular activities such as the theatre productions. Some of the Moon Hall pupils may board at Belmont.
If a Moon Hall pupil is able to, he or she may transfer to Belmont, in Year 7 (11-12 years old) to prepare for Senior School entry via Common Entrance, Scholarship or a school’s own admissions procedures. Early indication of a desire for a place in Year 7 (11-12 years old) is advised and each child will be assessed informally with consultation between the two schools.
Moon Hall has its own governing body and management structure. The partnership between Belmont and Moon Hall can provide the perfect educational package for families where one or more children are significantly dyslexic but would benefit from a prep school environment.
