How might my child be supported?
Children are offered additional support for a variety of reasons e.g. your child may demonstrate a particular strength in an area and may be given additional extension activities or opportunities to stretch them further, or your child may have gaps in their knowledge (perhaps through absence) or find it difficult to pick up new learning as quickly as some of their peers.
Additional support may include:
Small group interventions
Intervention from an outside agency e.g. Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy, Outreach Services, Educational Psychologist, CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), School Nursing Team etc. With Faith, Hope & Love we can achieve greater things.
1:1 Teaching Assistant Support (usually specified in a child’s Education Health Care Plan) Some children who require additional support may be identified as having a special educational need and would then be given individual targets to work on and support from outside agencies may be sought by school.
