What to do if you think your child may be having difficulties at school
Issues are best resolved by discussion with your class teacher, ALNCO and the Headteacher. The best results are seen when everyone works together with your child at the Centre of the process. We are trained in Person Centred Planning and our reviews are run in this format. (See Documents)
What will happen?
We are required to follow the Graduated Response from Powys (see documents) These steps have to be followed in the majority of cases. Profound and complex needs will need to be assessed before they enter school to ensure that we can meet their needs.
We are fortunate to have a wide variety of interventions at Cefnllys School.
Time to Talk
This is our intervention for children in Reception and Year 1 to develop oral and social communication skills.
This is our intervention for children with limited English to quickly acquire literacy skills to enable them to succeed in a mainstream class.
This is our main intervention for any children who are finding reading, spelling and writing tricky. Once they have completed the assessment online, new reading and spelling targets are created. The concepts are taught through games, videos and worksheets.
This is an intervention we run in small groups individually or in a small group for children who have dyslexic type difficulties.
This is an intervention for children who do not enjoy maths and are finding it difficult to learn mathematical concepts.
As part of our person centred planning approach we use one page profiles throughout the school for children with additional learning needs. We are hoping to roll these out for all Junior pupils.
This enables any person who is working with the child to quickly understand how best to support them and to avoid any triggers that may upset them.
