Teaching, Learning and Behaviour Intervention
The Inclusion department consists of a mixture of Teachers, HLTAs, TAs and learning mentors, full and part time. We have a specialist primary school teacher who supports with boost literacy and numeracy intervention. We also have EAL specialist TA’s.
Support is offered to students on an individual need basis, support may consist of:
- in class shared support
- in class 1:1 support
- withdrawal from humanities for additional literacy/numeracy lessons
- specific interventions based on the need of the individual pupil
- Alternative Provision
- The Bridge (Isolation and behaviour support unit)
- Behaviour Intervention Specialist (Coordinated 6 week intervention programme)
Specific intervention may include:
- Units of Sound (a phonics based programme to support students in any ability range based on need)
- Heart Math (support for students with emotional literacy needs and ADHD intervention)
- Phonics (Individual targeted intervention to support with phonics and literacy skills)
- SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) based programmes to support social and emotional needs.
- Guided reading (Group and individual reading support to improve literacy levels of targeted students)
- Boost (Intensive literacy and numeracy support for students below the national average for Key Stage 3)
- Thrive assessment and support (Thrive is a specific way of working with all children that helps to develop their social and emotional well-being, enabling them to engage with life and learning. It supports them in becoming more self-assured, capable and adaptable. It can also address any troubled, or troubling, behaviours providing a firm foundation for academic attainment.)
- ASPIRE (specific pathway for students in year 10/11 with additional needs. Aspire students follow a curriculum including more vocational courses as well as academic core subjects)
We also offer intervention run through agencies provided by Tameside’s Pupil Support Service.
Droylsden Academy has a Literacy Co-ordinator who oversees the literacy interventions throughout the whole school including “word of the week”.
