Quality first teaching- Lessons are differentiated for all learners, including those with SEND, in order for them to access the learning at their level and make progress.

The school has access to a wide range of professionals and outside agencies that we can contact for further support and advice. If we feel that outside agency input would benefit your child then we will have a meeting in school to discuss this with you.

We have access to:

  • Speech and language therapists
  • Educational Psychologists
  • Parent Support Advisers
  • Enhanced Mainstream schools for specific learning difficulties, communication and interaction and BESD
  • Specialist teachers for hearing and visually impaired children
  • Social care
  • Looked after children workers                                        



The aim of intervention is to narrow gaps in learning and to compliment the daily quality first teaching your child receives in class. The school offers afternoon intervention sessions with advanced teaching assistants. Children for interventions are identified through pupil progress meetings which are held termly. The intervention usually lasts for up to 6 weeks. 

Some of the interventions Glusburn CP School offers-

Precision teaching

Precision Teaching is a teaching method used to accelerate progress particularly in word reading and spelling skills although it is also used to increase children's proficiency in number facts.

In Precision Teaching, the learner's daily performance is recorded and this process is known to increase motivation. A summative record is also necessary to track rate of progress over time.
