How we check it is working

Taking longer to learn important skills

• Find it difficult to remember things like times tables and important words for reading.

• Find it hard to understand how to use their letter sounds for reading and spelling.

• Take longer to process information.

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.

• 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.

• 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.

• Individual assessments  to help show what the child or young person needs help with.

Access to specialist support from a specialist/outside agency

• Look at the targets set to see if the child or young person has achieved them.

• Talk to adults who have worked with the child or young person

• Talk to the child or young person

• Talk to parents.

• Use school tracking system to see how much the progress has been made.

• Have meetings with other members of staff in school to talk about the child or young person’s progress.

• Ask for other professionals to work with the child or young person to check the progress being made.
