Learning Intervention Team

The Learning Intervention Team works with schools to help them support children who need extra support with their literacy and numeracy skills.  The team consists of specialist teachers and a specialist Teaching Assistant.  

The team may:

  • Provide extra support for individual pupils
  • Provide training
  • Help schools to set up special literacy and numeracy support programmes such as SAIL, STARS and Talking Teddy/ Sion y Siarad
  • Provide schools with training and materials to deliver a range of published literacy and numeracy programmes.
  • Provide training for teachers and teaching assistants to gain specialist qualifications in teaching pupils with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyscalculia.

Talk to the SEN Coordinator (SENCo) at your child's school to find out more about specialist support for literacy and numeracy. Please contact the school's office to find out who the SENCo is at your child's school.
