Tibberton Community Primary School and Early Years currently supports several children with special educational needs or disabilities. We treat all children as individuals and plan for their success in school through a variety of ways. Children with special needs have an individualised learning plan called a My Plan.
These children have been identified based on their progress and needs within the classroom and our school has put many actions into place to support them. Every child on the Special needs and disabilities register receives weekly intervention from one of our experienced and skilled TA’s and an intervention timetable was put into place at the beginning of the academic year. The support received may be on a 1:1 basis or it may be as part of a group. We use a range of strategies, resources and materials based on each individual child’s learning styles and needs, to help the children to achieve their outcomes.
Every term the outcomes on the children’s My Plans/My Plan Plus are reviewed to see whether they have been achieved. If they have, the teacher will review the next steps needed for them to continue their progress further and write this into their new outcome(s). If they haven’t achieved them then they will continue with them for a further 6 weeks and adjustments are made where necessary to ensure achievement happens as promptly as it can.
We have good partnerships with various external agencies within our LA, and we employ their support where necessary.
