Our Provision

Our Provision

At Windy Arbor, we treat every child as an individual; offering the level of support appropriate to the child.


Universal provision:

This includes strategies that help all children access really good quality learning in the classroom, including high-quality teaching planned and differentiated to meet the needs of all abilities of children and provision of resources such as word cards, number lines, alphabet strips, pencil grips, etc.

Targeted provision:

This will include the withdrawal of children individually or in small groups to help them catch up on learning they have missed or overteach learning they find difficult to grasp. This will be done by the class teacher or teaching assistant for that year group.


Specialist provision:

When children fail to make adequate progress despite some targeted support, we work with specialists in various fields who help us assess pupils and recommend specific interventions to meet their needs. This includes, for example, 1:1 or small group speech therapy, extra literacy support, BEAM exercises, etc. A member of the SEND Team will deliver these interventions.


Through these three approaches, we can support children with a wide range of difficulties, including:

•Speech and language difficulties

•General or specific learning difficulties, including global development delay, Dyslexia, ADHD


•Physical difficulties, including Dyspraxia or Cerebral Palsy

•Social, emotional and mental health problems, including anxiety

•Visual or hearing impairment

•A range of medical conditions where children need additional support


Our Speech and language team:

At Windy Arbor, we currently employ a speech and language therapist Nicola Cole two days a week and a part-time specialist teaching assistant, Mrs Taylor.


They work as a team to support children across the school with speech, language and communication difficulties. This includes assessment, 1:1 and small group sessions, training and liaising with teaching staff. They also liaise with the NHS Speech and language therapists and the SLCD teams.


In addition, Mrs Taylor takes the lead in delivering *language link supported by Miss Bibb and Mr Nally who deliver the interventions across all key stages.


*Language link is a screening, assessment and teaching tool that supports children with receptive language difficulties across the school.
