We are meeting the needs of individual children through; Identifying target readers in each year band and allocating extra support for specific children.
Monitoring pupil progress by assessments, targeted writing, RAG grids, APP, curricular targets and personal support to improve attainment and confidence.
Booster classes in Year 6 where the children are split into smaller groups and given extra targeted support.
We provide differentiated teaching activities to address the needs of our children and ensure whole class teaching that appeals to the various learning styles of our children.
We have a high percentage of support staff working in school and are committed to developing their knowledge and skills in order to improve learning.
We employ a non class based Special Needs Co-ordinator who helps identify children with special needs in the early years so that support can be given to help the child at a crucial time in their education.

Company description
Children who do not make appropriate progress through differentiated activities or intervention programmes have an Individual Education Programme reviewed every term by the Special Needs Co-ordinator in discussion with the Class Teacher and Parents, where appropriate.
Lings Primary School is an improving school. At present, its overall effectiveness is satisfactory with good features and its capacity for improvement is good because it is well led and managed. This is also the school's view. Staff and pupils are coping extremely well during the current building programme to refurbish the school which has meant classes being moved around and some
housed in temporary accommodation. Despite this, and the large turnover of pupils each year, the school is a stable and harmonious community. It works very successfully to improve pupils' personal development and well-being, and they respond well, though pupils' attendance is not as good as it should be. Pupils are happy and growing in confidence, they feel safe and understand
the importance of leading healthy lifestyles. They are friendly and polite and relationships are very good.
Many pupils enter the school with weak communication, personal and social skills. Reception class children make satisfactory progress but the experiences provided for them are not broad enough.
Pupils in other year groups also make steady progress from their starting points and achieve satisfactorily. Teaching and learning are satisfactory and improving, especially as recent appointments have led to a more settled staffing situation. This is beginning to help pupils to make better progress. Standards in writing and mathematics are below average, and this holds pupils back across the curriculum. The good assessment procedures, though not always consistently applied, are becoming more effective in tracking pupils' progress so that teachers can plan work more effectively and pupils know what to do to improve their work.
