Stages of Intervention Process

Throughout a child & young person's time at school their teachers will routinely be reviewing their progress and considering their support needs. Every child & young person may need a little bit of support at some point and this is usually provided through learning and teaching in the class. (This is called universal support.) It is only when a child requires something different from other children that a staged intervention approach may be used.

Through talking with parents we have created a version of our stages of intervention which is from the view point of the child and family to help create a common understanding between all adults working to support the child. 

The Stages of Intervention booklet provides a framework to assess, identify, plan and review support for children & young people who have additional support needs. All local authorities have a staged intervention and assessment process in place which enables practitioners to assess and meet pupils' learning needs.
