St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School ‘Serve the Lord with Joy’

6. What if school based support is not enough?

We would keep up this process of: assess - plan – do - review each term. Where a pupil continues to make less than expected progress, despite support and interventions that are matched to the pupil’s areas of need, we will consider involving specialists. As a Wokingham school we are well placed to access an excellent range of support services – see below. 


The involvement of specialists and what was discussed or agreed will be recorded and shared with you as parents and with teaching staff supporting the child in the same way as other SEN support. As parents you will always be involved in any decision to involve specialists.


These services provide a range of support including:

  • working one to one and with small group work with children
  • providing training for teaching and support staff
  • helping us to assess needs and plan next steps and review progress


If your child requires these services we will involve you in the process at every stage: we will ask you to sign a referral form before the support can go ahead and you will meet the relevant specialist before they meet your child. If your child then receives support from a specialist team, you will be able to meet a member of the team to discuss your child’s progress.
