  • Ensuring careful and ongoing assessment of the pupils learning to inform further planning.
  • Ensuring that tasks and activities are matched to the ability of the children- allowing them to make progress at the right pace and level
  • Working with school leaders to complete and teach individual pupil plans where pupils have specific needs.
