What does provision look like for those with additional needs in Orcas class?

Outlined in the document below are the waves of provision we use to support children with additional needs.   Support is tailored to each individual and provided as needed, with or without a diagnosis. Please talk to your child's class teacher if you have any concerns about your child, their needs or the provision in class.  You can find further information on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities page on our website.  This is where you will find our vision for SEND pupils, and our SEND information report which outlines what we as a school can offer.

English / Reading comprehension / Reading: The children are supported with STEM sentence, shared writes, key word maps, focus words each week, group work, CLIKR, 1:1 reading sessions, daily reading, reading materials to follow during shared class reading sessions, Lexia and focused 1:1 / group same and next day interventions. 

Maths: The children are supported through the use of scaffolding, Mangahigh, group work and use of resources. The resources allow the children to understand the lessons through focused concrete learning where they are supported in 1:1 and group same and next day interventions to progress onto pictorial and abstract learning. 

Curriculum: The children are supported during curriculum lessons through the use of STEM sentences, verbal discussions to support understanding and group work.
