When a child has been identified with special needs, support is provided in a graduated approach depending on the child's needs.
- Quality First Teaching every day in the classroom will be differentiated to meet all children's needs, including those with special educational needs and disability.
- Small group or one to one intervention by a Higher Learning Teaching Assistant (HLTA), Teaching Assistant (TA) or Learning Support Assistant (LSA) may be provided to meet specific targets and needs.
- Your child's progress will be monitored by all staff involved and targets will be set according to their area of need on their Individual Provision Plan (IPP) and/or SEND Support Plan. The IPP and/or SEND Support Plan will be discussed with parents at review meetings and/or parent consultations at least three times a year.
- Specialist outside support may be requested to help determine next steps and identify any specific needs. Progress and provision will be coordinated between all parties involved.
- An application for an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) could be made if appropriate.
