When a pupil has been identified with special needs their work will be differentiated by the class teacher to enable them to access the curriculum more easily.
Teaching assistants (TA’s) may be allocated to work with the pupil 1:1 or in a small focused group to target specific needs.
If a child has been identified as having a special need, they will be given an Individual Learning Plan. Targets will be set according to their area of need. These will be monitored by the class teacher weekly and by the SENCo each half term. When a child is given an Individual Learning Plan, parents will be informed and will be offered the chance to meet with the class teacher and the SENCo to discuss the child’s strengths and areas for development.
Children placed on an ILP will receive bespoke interventions to help them achieve their targets. These may take place during the school day, before school or after school.
If required, specialist equipment or learning resources will be given to the child to aid with their learning.
