Making the most of ‘doing’

How an intervention and support package is put into place is as important as what we do.

Here are some useful prompts for implementing the agreed plan:

  • How will you ensure that the key people involved in implementing the agreed action plan will do so? It may be helpful to check in on progress one week on after the plan was agreed and at regular intervals.
  • Who will take responsibility for implementing the plan on a daily basis?
  • How will you ensure that the person who takes responsibility, e.g. class teacher, learning support assistant, has the ability to monitoring the quality and effectiveness of interventions?
  • Can you provide them with any templates or frameworks so that they can use to gather information or evidence in relation to the outcomes of agreed actions in the plan?
  • Are you able to schedule time for them to come and talk to you/seek advice when needed? Are they aware that they can do this?
  • How can you work together to ensure the child or young person and their parent carer understands the plan and has an active role in it’s implementation throughout?
  • Can you enable them to observe sessions or interventions and provide feedback to ensure that the agreed strategies are implemented effectively, sensitively and confidently?
  • How will you ensure all staff are aware of the agree plan and are adhering to any changes or implications for practice? 
  • How will the skills learnt in any groups or 1:1 sessions will be transferred into classroom work and real-life situations?
  • Have you planned in opportunities to enable the child or young person to practice and establish skills in class and at break?
