Learning Together

How will the curriculum be matched to my child's needs?

How will the curriculum be matched to my child/young person's needs?

If the learner is identified as having SEN, we will provide support that is ‘additional to’ or ‘different from’ the differentiated approaches which are provided as part of high quality, personalised teaching.

As part of the Code of Practice 2015, we will engage in the four stage graduated approach process: Assess, Plan, Do and Review.


Assess - take information from parents or carers, class teachers and their assessments and the child where appropriate.


Plan – identify barriers to learning, intended outcomes and details of support. This information will be recorded on a POP which will be reviewed at least termly.


Do – provide the additional support. The class teacher is responsible for working with the child on a day to day basis which includes overseeing interventions undertaken outside of the classroom. Teachers work closely with the teaching assistant delivering the intervention to discuss progress and to ensure links are made with classroom teaching.


Review - measure the impact of the support provided and consider any changes which may need to be made. All of those involved with the child will contribute to this review which will happen at least termly.

This additional support will be tailored to meet the child’s needs and will target the area of difficulty.

These interventions may be within class, with a small group of children with similar needs or on a one to-one basis. The support provided, and its impact, will be monitored closely and shared regularly with child and with their parents or carers.


For a small number of learners, their needs may require access to technology e.g. modified ICT equipment, recording devices or larger print etc.

While the majority of children will have their needs met in this way, some may require an EHC (Education, health & care) needs assessment to determine whether it is necessary for the Local Authority to make provision in accordance with an EHC plan.

Resources and extra support will be assessed and provided for if required, for individuals based on their needs.
