The Waves of Intervention - our graduated response

The school provides a graduated response to each child dependent on the level of need. These are often referred to as the waves of intervention.


Wave 1: Quality first teaching through differentiation in class.


Wave 2: Small group support for those pupils who are achieving below age expected levels.


Wave 3: Focused, individualised programmes for pupils working well below the levels expected for their age. This may involve referrals to outside agencies.
