The initial support will be through excellent classroom practice from class teachers (Quality First Teaching).
For your child this would mean:
* That the teacher has the highest possible expectations for your child and all pupils in their class.
* That all teaching is built on what your child already knows, can do and can understand.
* Different ways of teaching are in place so that your child is fully involved in learning in class. This may involve things like using more practical learning including visual aids to support class work.
* Specific strategies (which may be suggested by the SENCO) are in place to support your child to learn.
* Your child’s teacher will have carefully checked on your child’s progress and will have decided that your child has a gap or gaps in their understanding/learning and needs some extra support to help them make the best possible progress.
Your child may also be part of individual or specific group work. This intervention which may be run in the classroom or outside (corridor or in the school grounds), and led by a teacher or a Teaching Assistant (TA). Please see the link for all of the intervention we provide at St Joseph’s.
