Wave Two

At Polesden Lacey Infant School we strive for all children to make good progress and have access to a broad and balanced curriculum. Sometimes, a child may need support that is ‘different from’ or ‘additional to’ that provided for all children to make expected progress. In this case, a programme of intervention will be put into place. Interventions are time bound and pupil progress is assessed regularly to ensure their needs are met and targets reviewed. Interventions could be for short, medium or long term periods and this is assessed on a child by child basis. Should an intervention be necessary, we are able to offer support in the following ways:


  • Phonological Awareness Programme
  • Writing Programme
  • 1:1 reading support
  • Precision teaching
  • TOPPs – Gross motor skills programme
  • Fine motor skills programme
  • Handwriting programme
  • Small group maths and literacy work
  • Work with a Home School Link Worker
  • More able group work in reading, writing and maths
  • Speech and Language development
  • English as an Additional Language programme
  • Social skills – including classroom and playtime support
  • Individualised behaviour strategies
  • Recognition of gifts or talents and signposting as appropriate

All of the above will be delivered by a teacher, TA or LSA who is experienced in delivering these interventions.
