Possible Classroom Adaptations:

  • Adapting our curriculum to ensure all pupils can access it
  • Adapting our resources and where possible, providing flexible staffing arrangements (small groups and 1:1 interventions).
  • Using recommended aids, such as laptops, coloured overlays, visual timetables, larger font, specific seating and seating arrangements.
  • Adapting our teaching methods, for example, giving longer processing times, pre-teaching of key vocabulary, reading instructions aloud and making provision where appropriate for assessments.
