Once a child is recognised as in need of extra support, then the class teacher will take this in to account in the classroom, supporting the child within their own existing resources. For example, this may be achieved with the aid of the class teaching assistant or providing appropriate work at their level.

This is the first line ofsupport that the school will offer children. It is also often the most crucial, as it allows the child to access their day-to-day learning and education. Parents will be involved at all stages. The special needs support will run alongside normal classroom activities.
