Interventions for pupils with SEND


At Avenue we use on-going assessment of our SEND provision.


A whole school provision map shows the effectiveness of targeted interventions and these are reviewed half termly by the SENCO and assessment lead (Deputy Head).


We ensure that interventions target specific gaps in pupils understanding of a subject/area of learning.


Pupils who have been identified as needing physical intervention have a Positive Handling Plan in place which gives all staff working with them a detailed plan of how best to support the individual child.
