Social: Support For Targeted Groups

Support for targeted groups of pupils may include…

  • Additional behaviour strategies may be implemented as the teacher’s knowledge of your child’s need develops
  • More detailed assessment and identification of a child’s learning needs
  • Small time-limited group work following one of a range of behaviour/social skills/self-esteem/anger management interventions available in school delivered by a member of the teaching staff
  • Involvement of the SENCO to help determine the most appropriate intervention programme and/or if your child has not made the progress expected and a SEND is looking increasingly likely
  • Additional TA or LM support in class for some lessons or interventions
  • External agency advice where needed e.g. Local Authority services such as STePS (Specialist Teachers and Educational Psychology Services) which includes ASD specialist teachers, Educational Welfare Officer, Health services such as the School Nurse, Community Paediatrician, Specialist Children’s Services, CAMHS and Speech and Language Therapists and Social Services
  • Support from Social Care teams e.g. Team Around the Family
  • Becket Primary School is host to the Derby City KS1 Nurture Group* for children aged 5-7 years who present with a range of complex social and emotional difficulties who are at risk of exclusion or who have been excluded from mainstream education

(*the Local Authority are currently re-evaluating specialist provision and the Nurture Group is not, at this stage, accepting any referrals.)
