At school we focus on adaptive teaching in classrooms and have used the EEF guidance on this to support us. The Five a Day guidance is a really helpful tool for us to use to guide practice in classrooms. Teaching strategies that support children with SEND also support all children in the classroom.
In addition, we can provide children with quality interventions where they are needed to accelerate progress.
Outside agencies we can refer to:
