What interventions are available to students with SEN?

Interventions may be offered to a young person if they have been identified as having additional needs to accelerate their progress.

At this point the young person will have a student profile that all staff have access to, this profile contains information about their learning needs, learning styles, intervention programmes undertaken and additional information where appropriate.
