Intervention Sheet by @TeacherToolkit

Intervention Sheet by @TeacherToolkit

This document enables teachers to understand how support fits in with the specific area/s of SEN it is targeting. It has helped to give our interventions greater focus; I encourage teachers to look at their record sheet before each lesson as way of focusing in on the young people. It is also a beneficial tool for sharing information with senior leaders. Staff who are responsible for writing SEN Support Plans can also find it beneficial to use the information on the intervention records to add depth to their plan so that they can write about interventions they do not lead with confidence.

SEND Iceberg Analysis by @TeacherToolkit

SEND Iceberg Analysis by @TeacherToolkit

This is a great tool for using with staff as a discussion point with new learners with SEN needs. It works well in a staff meeting setting, where you can ask staff to work in pairs to brainstorm everything they know about the young person. It gets staff talking, especially if you ensure that you mix people up with someone they don’t normally work with. The benefit for the teacher is that they can then leave the meeting with their colleagues thoughts and strategies so that they can finish the SEN Support Plan. The benefit for all staff, is that they can hear how others perceive the young person.
