3. How will the school decide if my child needs extra support?

Decisions would be made based on both formal and informal methods including:


  • Adult observations over a period of time (by class teacher, teaching assistants, midday supervisor, Inclusion Lead)
  • Your child may be assessed by the Inclusion Lead using a program called LASS (KS2) or COPs (KS1). This assessment toll may identify specific areas of difficulties your child may have
  • Monitoring data (collected and analysed every term at Pupil Progress meetings)
  • Pupil discussions - do they find something challenging? (this could be academic; communication; social, emotional or behavioural; physical)
  • Parent discussions (as detailed above)
