Literacy & Numeracy Support/Reading Support

Secondary School pupils take part in Literacy or Numeracy every morning on a rotating daily basis. Staff are on hand to boost the confidence of our pupils in these areas. In the afternoon, the same care is given to reading. Pupils are assessed in these areas by the relevant teachers and feedback is given. These take place in form groups unless additional support is arranged by the SENCo.

School Assemblies & Church

Primary students have their assembly on Wednesdays at 15.00. Secondary School pupils have assembly either as a school, or in small groups at school or church at nearby St Mary’s, Slindon every Friday on a rotating basis. These are led by the Headmaster, Heads of Year, our local vicar or with an outside agency. Assembly is around 25mins at the start of the day.

*Enrichment Activities/End of the School Day

On Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday all Secondary School pupils take part in compulsory Enrichment Activities. Pupils can change their activity every term if they wish. On Thursday and Friday school finishes at the earlier time of 15.30. Primary School pupils must commit to at least one Enrichment Activity.

Great food to fuel your son

All meals are cooked on site by our fantastic catering staff and are eaten in the dining room. The staff sit with the pupils at meal times which enables them to chat informally over the meal. Special dietary requirements for allergies or religious reasons can be met provided we are advised in advance. In such cases Matron should be provided with full details so she can ensure that your son’s needs are met. Take a look at our menu of upcoming lunch options for the next 1-2 weeks on our homepage.

Break Time Snacks

All Primary and Secondary School pupils are offered a free snack and drink by the kitchens here at Slindon College! Fruit, Homemade biscuits, cheese straws and more! Pupils can help themselves to water or a cup of tea if they wish. This is supervised by the member of staff on duty.
