The best place for a pupil to learn is in the classroom. Not only do pupils get the benefit of a specialist teacher but they also benefit from being around their peers. However, don’t just take our word for it! Recent OFSTED research stated that it is important for a child to have full access to the curriculum for their academic and social development.
