Alternative Learning Pathway Support

Alternative Learning Pathway

'In Reach Offer'

Offering ‘In Reach’ support for children and young people with challenging behaviour, social and emotional barriers to learning and unidentified Special Educational Needs (SEN), through an offer of direct support for children and young people, on a 1:1 or small group basis. ‘In Reach’ is planned according to need, at the earliest possible stage. 

SALT will support key professionals with the development and use of resources, to enable children and young people with challenging behaviour, social and emotional barriers to learning, and unidentified SEN to access the curriculum, learn at their pace, and make good progress. 

We build on expertise within mainstream schools, and relevant settings, to equip staff at all levels to recognise and successfully meet the learning needs of children with challenging behaviour and social and emotional barriers to learning. 

SALT offers opportunities to develop effective whole school and setting systems through a flexible, but targeted approach to continuous professional development and training.

It is our ambition to reduce the need for Statements of SEN by establishing more effective processes for children to access timely, high quality earlier intervention, support and provision. Working with settings and schools in a proactive and positive way to build the capacity and confidence to problem-solve identified areas of need and intervention at an early stage. 

SALT offers support with the general development and management of the learning environment and teaching strategies. We undertake independent observations within school, and with support staff, to offer recommendations to support the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of teachers, and to provide reflective learning opportunities for practitioners working with high need children and young people.

We can help with the identification of patterns of need across groups of pupils and tailor the support offered to meet the needs of the individual child or the cohort. We also provide sensitive consultation with children to support engagement.

‘Out Reach Offer’

Structured, high quality, education and activity based packages tailored to support the social, emotional and educational needs of complex children and young people, who are unable to access mainstream provision. Packages of support are co-created with a Key Worker and/or Designated Teacher, based on accessible and differentiated educational tasks and activities.

Packages of support are cross-referenced to the National Curriculum and are inclusive of learning objectives within EHCP’s, Individual and Personal Education Plans.

SALT ‘Transition and Reintegration Plans’ offer schools independent, practical advice, and objective based support to re engage ‘high need’ and ‘at risk’ learners.
