Martley C.E Primary School is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the children living in our local area. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.
Levels of Intervention
For pupils at Martley C.E Primary School, their needs are met using three levels of intervention, described as ‘waves of support,’ which support access to the new National Curriculum.
Wave 1 is the provision of quality inclusive teaching that takes into account the learning needs of all the pupils in the classroom. It includes differentiated work, flexible groups and creating an inclusive learning environment.
Wave 2 is the provision of specific, additional time limited interventions provided for some pupils who need help to accelerate their progress or enable them to work at or above their age-related expectations. They are often targeted at a group of pupils with similar needs.
Wave 3 is the targeted provision for a minority of pupils where it is necessary to provide highly tailored intervention to accelerate progress or enable children to achieve their potential.
The Graduated Response
Where a child is identified as having Special Educational Needs, schools and settings should take action to remove barriers to the child's learning and put effective special educational provision in place. This is called SEN support. Support should take the form of a four-part cycle involving the parent and carers and the child. By taking this approach earlier decisions and actions are revisited, refined and revised with a growing understanding of the child's needs and of what support will help to secure good progress and good outcomes for them. This approach is known as the Graduated Response.
