Targeted individual support may include…
- Involvement of the SENCo to monitor, advise, assess, review, liaise with external agencies and coordinate the child’s support plan
- Implementation of very specific teaching strategies designed to support your child’s needs
- External agency advice where needed e.g. Local Authority services such as STePS (Specialist Teachers and Educational Psychology Services) which includes ASD specialist teachers and Health services such as the School Nurse, Occupational Therapists or Physiotherapists and Speech and Language Therapists
- Referral to and assessment by the Educational Psychologist.
- Individual Education Plan agreed in school with the SENCo, class teacher and parent/carer
- 1:1 tuition* with other teaching staff in school following an Individual Education Plan or intervention programme which outlines specific targets
- Individual TA support in class for some or all lessons (if the support was in all lessons, the child would have a Statement of SEN or an Education, Health, Care Plan (EHCP)
- Exam access arrangements for KS2 SATS
- Y6-Y7 transition support
- On-going monitoring and additional specific assessment to inform target-setting
- Termly reviews with the SENCo, staff and parents/carers at which the child’s progress and provision can be discussed and modified
*Children are usually withdrawn from class for their 1:1 support sessions. The amount of time a child spends out of the class is monitored by their class teacher and care is taken to avoid the same lesson being missed all the time.
