(Assistant Head – Learning Support & Pupil Development)
Having spent two years at Ixworth Middle School as Head of PE, followed by five years at Kesgrave High School as not only a PE teacher but as Assistant Head of Learning Support, Mr Patten joined Woodbridge School in 2015.
Focusing on a multitude of elements in terms of learning support, Mr Patten and his team of Learning Support Assistants work closely with not only students in School, but also with the Admissions department. In terms of prospective students, Mr Patten requests any assessment, feedback or academic reports be submitted prior to starting at Woodbridge, enabling him and his team to understand any specific learning needs ahead of entry to the School. Any support required, can be planned and mapped out to ensure there are no surprises for teachers, students or parents in the first few days, weeks or months at the School.
