Class work is differentiated and pitched at the correct level so that all children are able to access the curriculum according to their specific needs and abilities. Typically this might mean that in a lesson there would be three or four different levels of work set for the class.However, on occasions work may be individually differentiated for a specific child. The benefit of this type of differentiation is that all children can access a lesson and learn at their level.
Within all key stages a number of small support groups are regularly taught. These groups include extra support in spelling, phonics, handwriting, reading, writing and mathematics.
There may be a teaching assistant working with your child either individually or as part of a group, if the class teacher considers this as necessary.
For some children with SEN, teachers will write an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) planning a set of targets to be achieved that particular term. Other pupils may belong to a support group which will have targets set for the pupils to achieve.
A number of children, particularly those who have a Statement of SEN or an Education, Health Care Plan (EHC) are taught on a 1 to 1 basis, with the curriculum adapted to meet their needs.
