At Chorlton Park Primary School children's needs are addressed systematically using a three wave approach. 

Wave 1: 

All children receive quality first teaching. This means a range of teaching and learning styles are used and appropriate learning objectives are set for a curriculum that meets their individual needs. 

All children’s progress is monitored half termly by the Senior Leadership Team and Class Teachers. At this time provision may be adjusted to meet identified needs. 

Wave 2: 

School based interventions are put in place where necessary to enable children to work at age-related expectations. 

Wave 3: 

For children who do not make expected progress after school based interventions school will liaise with outside agencies. 

A highly differentiated or personal interventions or curriculum will be established for those who need it using the advice of other professionals.
