Inclusion

 THE FEDERATION'S GRADUATED APPROACH TO INCLUSION

WAVE 1

Effective inclusion of all pupils is delivered by quality first teaching in all lessons. This includes Differentiation, multi sensory teaching and support given by class teacher and learning support assistant. 

All Teachers are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of the pupils in their class, including where pupils access support from teaching assistants or specialist staff.(6.36)

WAVE 2

Quality first teaching in class delivered by teacher and intervention put in place by teacher to Assess, Plan, Do and Review.

WAVE 3  

Despite quality first teaching no progress has been made in the intervention. A referral is made to the SENCO. The SENCO assesses pupil and sets specific targets and is placed on the SEN support list. This may result in a referral to the Educational Psychologist, Speech Therapy or an application for an Education Health Care Plan.

Support draws on more detailed approached, more frequent review and more specialist expertise in successive cycles in order to match interventions to the SEN of children and young people. (6.44)
