At St. Michael’s we are clear in our vision that pupils should be supported in class, and be able to access the curriculum. However, we also recognise that for a small minority of pupils different interventions and approaches may need to be used to address specific areas. As an Inclusion Team we look carefully at each child’s individual needs when deciding how best to support them and which of our interventions to use.
All interventions and approaches included have been shown to have a positive impact on pupils’ learning. Below is a list of interventions we offer to support our children who require specific support which have been arranged into our four areas of need: Cognition and Learning, Communication and Language, Sensory and Physical and Social Emotional Mental Health. These are subject to change and will be updated accordingly.
Every child at St. Michael’s receives inclusive Quality First Curriculum Implementation, which may include adapted or individualised classwork and in class support. We may also offer specific targeted support for children with additional needs in order to accelerate their progress to help them work at age-related expectations. Some children will receive highly personalised interventions to enable them to achieve their potential which may include support from outside agencies.
Please see below links to information and interventions related to our four areas of need.
