Providing Learning Support

All pupils at Staindrop benefit from high quality teaching, which includes an appropriate curriculum differentiated to meet the needs of all learners, including those who need support or extension.

At Staindrop, we adopt a graduated response to meeting the needs of our pupils with special educational needs.  Learning support is delivered using a three-stage model.

Wave 1- QFT-Quality First Teaching

This involves:

  • Ensuring that the teacher has the highest possible expectations for your child and all pupils in their class.
  • Ensuring that all teaching is based on building on what your child already knows, can do and understands.
  • Putting in place different ways of teaching so that your child is fully involved in learning in class.
  • Putting in place specific strategies (which may be suggested by the SENCO or external staff) to support your child to learn.

Wave 2-Small Group intervention.

If your child is struggling with aspects of literacy, numeracy, speech and language or motor skills they will be given the opportunity to access additional small group intervention. Specialist HLTA’S will work with your child on an appropriate programme to boost their skills to ensure that they have the skills to access the school curriculum.

Wave 3- Individualised 1:1 support

Children who are working significantly below national and age related expectations may benefit for Wave 3 intervention. This type of intervention would involve a highly structured 1:1 support programme which would be delivered by a specialist HLTA or in some cases a teacher, depending on the area of need.
