Graduated Response

Graduated Response for support and intervention

The following tool, outlining the graduated phases of provision available to all pupils. It is primarily a monitoring tool to ensure that all pupils receive appropriate provision according to need.  You can use the tool in the following ways:

  • To break down the three stages of provision (universal, targeted and identified SEND) to further refine the graduated approach
  • To assess all pupils against the five stages to ensure appropriate provision
  • To check the accuracy of the school’s SEND Register
  • To ensure class teachers are responsible for the provision of all learners, including those pupils with SEND
  • To outline and communicate expectations for different stages of provision
  • To clarify assessment and monitoring systems at different stages and who is responsible
  • To enable senior leaders to check provision for identified pupils as part of pupil progress meetings
  • To provide early intervention to prevent pupils from developing a special educational need
  • To clarify provision where lack of progress for individual pupils is causing concern
  • To ensure that additional support is time limited and rooted in a cycle of Assess Plan Do Review, in line with the SEND Code of Practice.
  • To ensure that all pupils are monitored closely and no pupil ‘falls through the net’.
