There are four main areas under the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) umbrella. Support is structured in three layers, often referred to as the 'Waves of Intervention'. As a general rule, 'Wave 1' is a solid foundation in accessible teaching and learning. 'Wave 2' is group based interventions that support an underlying need, such as reading and spelling while 'Wave' 3 is a more 'specialist' or 1:1 programme. These sessions could be led by a member of the team or an external professional such as a Speech and Language Therapist (SaLT).
Each area of need below outlines the levels of support available to our students. Access to this support comes through analysis of student progress, teacher / parent requests for investigation and medical diagnoses that impact learning, communication, accessibility or mental health.
