Supporting our Learners
The majority of our children work in their classroom alongside their peers. Some children require some adjustments that are additional or different from their peers to enable them to be successful in class. This may mean that they have access to additional adult support, scaffolds to support their learning or resources such as fiddle toys etc. to help them focus and achieve well.
For a minority of children they may require a further level of support and a reasonably adjusted curriculum, support with Therapeutic Support Programme Meetings (TSP) or alternative provision.
We have a Therapeutic Team that supports our children. We have 3 Therapeutic Learning Support Assistants, our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) and a playworker who work together to ensure that children have all the help possible to enable them to keep learning and making good progress, despite any challenges that they may be facing.
The Therapeutic Team can work alongside children in their classroom, give them reassurance and help children access their learning in smaller parts or give them regular movement breaks. They can also support them with additional pastoral care and emotional regulation strategies to help them with their behaviour.
The Therapeutic Team work closely with the SENCo and the child's class teacher so that they can complete their age appropriate learning.
Children who need significant adjustments will follow a bespoke plan and identified targets to work towards, with the aim to allow them to meet their full potential and to follow the National Curriculum as appropriate.
