Graduated Approach

This is a document for all teaching and support staff in schools. The SEND Code of Practice clearly articulates that all teachers are teachers of children and young people with Special Educational Needs. The philosophy of achievement for all pupils is a key factor in the aspiration of North Lincolnshire for its children and young people.

Children and young people usually develop skills sequentially but not always at the same rate. By understanding the developmental level, strengths, needs and learning potential of children and young people staff can set realistic aspirational targets which children and young people are able to achieve. Focusing on the strengths of a child will be the starting point for any child or young person’s programme of intervention.
