Teaching & Learning

All pupils in school, no matter what their level of need, receive quality first teaching. This means that a range of teaching and learning styles are used and that appropriate learning objectives are set for all children with a curriculum matched to their needs. All our classes are supported by teaching assistants and pupils are also offered additional one to one tuition, small group work or catch up programmes where needed. Support can also be arranged so our extra-curricular activities are inclusive.

At Temple the progress and attainment of all pupils is reviewed by members of the SLT through Pupil Progress Meetings. You would normally be informed about your child’s general progress and targets through Parent’s Evenings and annual report.

If a child continues to have difficulty after intervention or has a high level of difficulty when they join us, they may be considered to have special educational needs (SEN) and placed on the SEN register. Parents will be informed of this.

  • As part of our support for all children in school we have regular opportunities to consult with support services and health agencies through a multi-agency approach which sometimes includes completing the Early Help Assessment (EHA) to support the family as well as the pupil.
  • We will discuss the needs of the individual/family in school and plan together the best use of advice and support from other agencies.

Professionals who might attend this meeting include:

  • A School Nurse who can advise and assess any medical needs. If an Individual Health Care Plan is required this would be done in conjunction with the parent/nurse and reviewed annually as a minimum.
  • Our School Speech and Language Therapist can advise upon whether your child would benefit from language support or assessment.
  • An Educational Psychologist may give advice or complete an assessment for a few children.
  • Behaviour Support Professionals who give advice if required.
  • Outreach support from specialist schools
