Somerset Graduated Response


Quality first teaching underpins all educational provision. It focuses on inclusive practice and breaks down barriers to learning. For the majority of children this can be achieved by identifying specific barriers, followed by personalisation and differentiation using strategies as identified in the Somerset Graduated Response Tool. The Somerset Graduated Response Tool breaks down SEN into four broad areas of need. This targets specific support for teachers to plan and for any interventions to take place. You can learn more about the Somerset Graduated Response at: https://www.somerset.gov.uk/children-families-and-education/the-local-offer/education/what-to-expect-from-education/


If you have any concerns regarding SEND and your child please contact your child’s class teacher as your first port of call.


• You could also arrange to meet our SENDCo Mrs Knight or our Head of School Mrs Cosser on (01749) 860329 or ditcheatoffice@eastsomerserfederation.co.uk.
