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 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. Examples of some of the support and provision we offer at Avenue are:
Specific intervention to develop communication development including language and interaction.
Drawing and Talking
Individual and small group therapeutic intervention to allow pupils to express their feelings and emotions and develop strategies to support their emotional well-being.
