Children and young people who find learning, thinking and understanding harder than most other people.
Types of need and what that could look like Examples of support available in our school How we check it is working
Some of the things children and young people might find difficult are: • Teachers change what they are teaching or the way that they teach to help the child or young person learn more with the rest of the class. • Look at the targets set to see if the child or young person has achieved them.
• Taking longer to learn important skills • Extra support can be given in a small group by an adult to help the child or young person learn the things they are finding difficult. • Talk to adults who have worked with the child or young person
• Find it difficult to remember things like times tables and important words for reading. • Extra support can be given to the child or young person by adult for a short time during the day to support them to learn new skills. • Talk to the child or young person
• Find it hard to understand how to use their letter sounds for reading and spelling. • Individual targets asset to help show what the child or young person needs help with. • Talk to parents.
• Take longer to process information. • Access to specialist support from a teacher or other professional. • Use school tracking system to see how much the progress has been made.
