How we check it is working.

Children and young people who find learning, thinking and understanding harder than most other pupils.

Some of the things children and young people with these difficulties might find difficult are:

  • Take longer to learn important skills
  • Find it difficult to remember things such as the  important words for reading and times tables
  • Find it hard to understand how to use letter sounds to read and spell words
  • May need more time to think about their answers

 

  • Teachers change what they are teaching or the way they are teaching in order to help the child or young people learn more with the rest of the class
  • Extra support can be given in a small group by an adult to help the child or young person learn the things they are finding difficult
  • Extra support can be given to the child or young person by an adult for short time during the day to support them learn skills
  • Individual targets set to help show what the child or young person needs help with
  • Access to specialist support from a teacher or other professional

 

  • Look at the targets set to see if the child or young person has achieved them
  • Talk to adults who have worked with the child or young person
  • Talk to parents
  • Talk to the child or young person
  • Use the school tracking system to see how much progress the child or young person has made
  • Have meetings with other staff in school to talk about how the child or young person is learning
  • Ask for other professionals to work with the child or young person to check the progress being made
