SEN support in schools 6.44 Where a pupil is identified as having SEN, schools should take action to remove barriers to learning and put effective special educational provision in place. This SEN support should take the form of a four-part cycle through which earlier decisions and actions are revisited, refined and revised with a growing understanding of the pupil’s needs and of what supports the pupil in making good progress and securing good outcomes. This is known as the graduated approach. It draws on more detailed approaches, more frequent review and more specialist expertise in successive cycles in order to match interventions to the SEN of children and young people. (COP 2015)
Takes the form of: Assess the child’s needs Plan what are we going to do and how, who will be involved Do carry out the plan Review what has worked, not worked so well, where are we now, how effective the support was and what impact it has had.
