Additional Support Needs

A learner can have additional support needs for any reason that prevents that learner fulfilling his or her potential. For example, additional support may be needed for a child or young person who:

  • is being bullied
  • has behavioural or learning difficulties
  • is deaf or blind
  • is particularly able or talented
  • is bereaved
  • is not attending school regularly
  • is living with parents who are abusing substances 

If you as a pupil of Blairgowrie High School, or as a parent of a pupil, feel that there is an additional support need that we do not know about, please contact the school and ask for your child’s Guidance teacher in the first instance.
