'A Graduated Response'

Quality First Teaching

At Christ Church we encourage a three-step model to ensure teaching is accessible and inclusive for all, whilst aiming to reduce underachievement.
Step 1: We believe that ‘Quality First Teaching’ - high quality, inclusive teaching for all pupils in a class - is the key to making sure that all children make as much progress as possible. This may include a 'same day intervention' to instantly address any errors or misconceptions.
Step 2: Extra in class support or short term interventions for pupils who are not quite meeting age-related expectations, so that they can get back on track in their learning journey. This may also include some after school tuition. Below are some of the most frequent interventions that take place in school.
Step 3: A much more personalised learning programme for pupils working significantly below age related expectations or needing significant emotional or social support to engage with a school curriculum.

Daily reading

Daily reading to an adult at school is one way we endeavour to make every child a reader.
A child's reading skills are important to their success in school and in life, as these skills allow them to access the breadth of the curriculum and improve their communication and language skills. Reading is a fun and imaginative time for children, which opens doors to all kinds of new worlds for them.

Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are the manner in which we use our fingers, hands and arms. Fine motor skills activities are designed to address difficulties with handwriting and drawing, using scissors, doing up buttons and zips, using cutlery and other areas of play, self-care and school related performance. 

This type of intervention may include 'Clever Hands' (a programme complied by Occupational and Physiotherapists) or specific handwriting sessions.

Sensory Circuits

Sensory circuits involves a sequence of physical activities that are designed to alert, organise, calm and help children regulate and organise their senses in order to achieve the ‘just right’  level of alertness required for effective learning. Sensory circuits are a great way to both energise and settle children so they can focus and engage better in the classroom.

Gross Motor Skills

Gross motor skills are all about how we control and co ordinate our larger movements.  Gross motor skills activities are designed to address difficulties with balance, body awareness and hand-eye co ordination, including activities like learning to ride a bike.

This type of intervention may include 'Fizzy' (a programme complied by Occupational and Physiotherapists) or specific sensory circuit activities.
