  • Improved progress and attainment through identifying priority areas for development and providing recommendations tailored to individual need

  • School’s overall capacity  to deliver ‘Ordinarily Available’ is enhanced

  • By identifying and addressing pupil’s learning needs effectively, their emotional health and well-being is enhanced

  • Inappropriate behaviours stemming  from either previously unidentified or unmet learning needs are reduced

  • Improved access to the curriculum through the promotion of inclusive practices


Feedback from a First School SENCo

“Time you spent with our TA has had a huge impact.

She is so confident and self-sufficient with her interventions because of your advice and support.

The children are much more positive and independent in the classroom too”
