Children who experience difficulties within any of the above areas of need will be monitored carefully and a meeting with parents / carers will be held. A ‘Short Note’ will be initiated and reviewed at least termly with parents / class teacher. This will be done through an ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review’ (APDR) approach.
- Assess: carry out a clear analysis of the pupil’s needs through formal assessments or in class informal observations.
- Plan: decide the interventions and support to be put in place as well as the expected impact on progress, clear outcomes and a date for review with staff and parents.
- Do: strategies and interventions will be put in place to meet these outcomes. The class teacher should remain responsible for working with the child on a daily basis, even where interventions involve group or one-to-one teaching.
Review: evaluate the impact and quality of the support and interventions and listen to the views of the pupil and parents. Children at this level of support will be listed on a ‘Monitoring Register.’ After a number of APDR cycles, it may be appropriate that children are taken off this level and monitored through Quality First Teaching. In some cases it may be necessary to increase the level of need to an SEN Support Plan.
