For Identifying and Addressing an Individual’s Needs
Assess Plan Do Review

Is the child unable to access the same opportunities as others?

Is the child not making good progress in their learning and development?

If quality first teaching is unable to address issues above, move to Plan stage.

Consult pupil and parents / carers

Seek advice from SENco or other agencies

Identify targets and Make these explicit on the provision map (APDR)


Targeted support / intervention from school staff

Specialist support and additional resourcing where appropriate




Reassess progress and development at regular intervals

Review targets with pupils,  parents / carers and professionals involved.
