Provision Maps

Whole School Provision Map

At Harbinger,  we make provision for pupils with communication and interaction needs, cognition and learning, children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties and children with sensory and/or physical needs through a variety of interventions.

We know that some pupils will have difficulties in more than one of these areas and we will always do our best to meet their needs. All children in school have support within lessons through differentiation and quality first teaching strategies. This means that activities are planned according to the level the child is working at. This can include a variety of adaptions including reasonable changes to the physical environment, changes to teaching styles, resources, scaffolding as well as levels of adult support.

Each class teacher plans for provision within their class through intervention planning each half term. The progress within those interventions is monitored through termly pupil progress meetings with the class teacher and SLT team in collaboration with the SENDCo and this is reported to governors.
