High quality inclusive teaching, known as ‘Quality First’ occurs as part of our good practice throughout the school. If your child is not making expected progress their class teacher will plan appropriate differentiation and/or specific strategies to use in class.
Children who are identified as having additional needs will be given support planned by the class teacher, SENCO or support staff.This may be extra group support in class or an out of class catch-up intervention.
The school provides a range of ‘additional provision’ to support the needs of our vulnerable learners and this is overseen by our school’s SENCO.
Extra provision is allocated to and amongst our vulnerable learners on a needs and availability basis determined by class teachers, SENCO, our support staff and other professionals assessments.
At St Lawrence we work in close partnership with other professionals to help identify further strategies that can support our pupils’ needs.These services include Hounslow’s Early Intervention Service (EIS), the Special Educational Needs Sensory Service (SENSS) or other specialist provision e.g. Speech and Language Therapy.
These specialist teachers help the school to identify if a child has a specific special educational need or special needs in more than one area.When this has been identified we can work together to put in the right additional support to help your child progress.
