SEND Information Report 6: Teaching and Support


6. HOW DO WE MAKE SURE THAT TEACHING AND SUPPORT HELPS YOUR CHILD TO LEARN AND MAKE GOOD PROGRESS?

We know that high quality classroom teaching and skilful support will make a big difference to the progress of children with SEND.
Making sure that this happens in all classrooms is one of the most important things that our school leaders do.
Carlton school leaders – including the SENDCO – works with teachers and support staff to provide effective teaching and support for children with SEND in a variety of ways. These include:

  • carefully differentiated lessons to ensures that all children are able to access lessons and make progress.
  • making sure that the class teacher takes full responsibility for all children’s learning and progress.
  • using a wide variety of teaching approaches, including guiding learning through demonstration.
  • providing a stimulating, rich and interactive classroom environment.
  • making adjustments and adaptations to suit individual pupils, e.g. seating places, using increased visual symbols
  • using regular, clear and rigorous assessments that help teachers to track pupils’ progress and identify gaps in their understanding: our marking policy makes sure that children know how to improve their work.
  • providing additional adult support from well-trained and well supervised learning support assistants or other learning support staff.
  • making available specialist equipment and digital technology to support access and participation in learning.

Where children require further targeted or individualised support, this will be delivered as described in section 4.
