I have a class of 28 Y3 children, nine of whom have special needs, mainly in Literacy, and who require some extra support throughout the week to fully access the curriculum and make expected progress. So far, so normal. One of the children, 'R', has considerable special needs. He has global developmental delay (so has difficulty dressing, eating etc), is blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other. His medical needs mean he is at heightened risk of retinal detachment meaning he must be constantly watched to ensure he does not bang his head. He has limited speech and significantly underdeveloped gross and fine motor skills. He can recognise single letters and is learning to write his name. He can count up to 12 reliably and can add single digit numbers with equipment such as cubes. He will focus on a task for up to ten minutes with adult support, but for far less time without. My problem is that my support for him has been cut to 6 hours per week (down from 15, which still wasn't enough) 1-2-1 time with a SEN teaching assistant. I am struggling massively with this. I can't teach the rest of the class without interruption from him as his attention span is so limited. I am struggling to find meaningful activities that he can do independently so I can work with the class or a group. Obviously, some of my time I can work 1-2-1 with him, but not the 20 hours a week that it is just me and him and 27 other children! Can anyone advise me? Can you point me in the direction of any good resources or ideas that I can try with him? Maybe something that my LSA can start with him and then he can continue independently? Our SENCO is currently off on long term sick and the senior leadership team are not being remotely helpful - there response is that he is a member of my class and I need to find ways to help him access the curriculum. I am not disputing that but I am really struggling and I don't think that anyone in my class at present is getting a good enough education while I juggle unsuccessfully. I have been threatened with capability if I do not get this sorted. Thank you in advance for your help.
