Once a potential need has been identified and an SAP has been written, the first action will be for the class teacher to provide additional support within the classroom in order to meet the child’s targets. This may include differentiated work and/or the use of additional resources or scaffolding. If more support is required then the class teacher will liaise with the Inclusion Manager or SENCO. Further interventions may then be put in place and the child’s progress within these will be monitored.
Sometimes, the schools may need advice and support from outside agencies in order to better support a child. Outside agencies that we use include; Hampshire Educational Psychology, Norman Gate Outreach, Primary Behaviour Service, CAMHs etc. Visits from these agencies will usually include an observation of the child, individual work and a discussion with class teacher, Inclusion Manager, SENCO and parents.
