What support do we offer?

Graduated Approach

The Three Waves Model of Intervention


Wave 1: Inclusive Quality First Teaching/Universal support for all children without any additional intervention (element 1 funding); 

Wave 2: For children who are underachieving but do not have SEN and may be able to catch up with their peers, evidence based intervention (element 1 funding /school budget); 

Wave 3: Additional support for those with SEN who may have longer term needs and require individualised intervention within a setting’s SEN Support, ranging from some to a high level of support through evidence based personalised programmes of intervention (element 2 funding). Wave 3 also covers the few children requiring a high level or exceptional support and highly personalised provision through an EHC Plan (element 3 top-up funding from the LA).
