Interventions in Early Years:

  • 1-1 and small group Speech and language support

  • Speed sounds intervention groups. ( Reception)

  • Extra reading – 1-1 ( Reception)

  • Handwriting groups – multisensory.

  • Abacus Maths

  • Social skills group

Early Years Resources

The SEN budget is directly devolved to the school. Emphasis is placed on providing a broad, balanced, creative and differentiated curriculum; therefore money is allocated to provide a range of resources. These are allocated according to need and include ancillary help, speech and language therapist, teacher time and materials and ICT support.

Resources currently available within classrooms are:

  • Sloping boards for writing

  • Pencils and pencil grips

  • Different types of scissors

  • Outdoor learning

  • Role-play areas

  • Gross and fine motor skills equipment

  • Allotments and Poly tunnel

  • Visual timetables
