Question 4

4. What types of support are available for children?

All children receive support from their class teacher to move their learning forwards, through high quality teaching and regular monitoring of progress.

All staff have high expectations, and adapt their planning and resources to enable children to be fully engaged in their learning.

A range of specific small groups, run by either a teacher or qualified teaching assistant, operate to close any gaps that may be identified. These may include:
  • Small group work based on gaps in children's learning e.g. reading support, specific writing skills 
  • Use of intervention programmes e.g. phonological awareness programme, 5 minute box, Power of 2, Gym Trail (fine and gross motor skills) 
  • Small group/individual work on speech and language targets, social skills, lego therapy 
Specialised small group or 1:1 interventions may be run for those children requiring more specific support, possibly under the guidance of outside agencies, such as occupational health
