Intervention for SEN students

Students who are on the the school provision map on SS or above will have access to interventions to ensure the students have support to make progress in their area of need. Interventions are planned on an individual basis with the SENCo, students and parents.  All students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and we endeavour to make sure the students interventions have minimal impact on their learning in other subjects.

What is the entrance criteria to intervention?

We complete regular staff surveys so they are able to communicate any students who are not making progress, the SENCo then completes specific tests to unpick possible difficulties to inform intervention, this provides relevant data on which to baseline the students.

We use this assessment data to:

  • Identify which pupils are in need of intervention
  • Identify which topics require additional support
  • Track the progress the pupils in the intervention are making

The best interventions provide the right support to the right child.

At LJFS we run the following interventions:

  • Literacy (LEXIA)
  • 1:1 Specialist teaching (L7 Qualified dyslexia teacher)
  • Speech and language therapy
  • Numeracy (Mathletics)
  • Group enhance (confidence, resilience and enterprise)
  • SALT (NHS pathway resources)
  • Peer support
  • Mentoring (The Zone)
  • SPACE (reflection time and time for restoration)

The interventions are run with the evidence form the EEF teaching and learning toolkit in mind, to ensure that what we do it rooted in research and best practice.

The interventions it lists as having the greatest impact include:

  • Metacognition and self-regulation
  • Reading comprehension strategies
  • Oral language interventions

We also ensure that our  interventions are short, sharp and regular:

  • Last between 20 and 50 minutes
  • Happen 3 to 5 times a week
  • Last between 8 and 20 weeks

We always ensure a break from interventions, to allow us to monitor the impact of them in the students progress throughout school.

If you would like more information about interventions for your child, please contact the SENCo at the school.
