3. Where there is a speech and language delay, verbal communication is developing and there is evidence of listening skills and underlying comprehension. Older pupils should be able to engage in social interaction with a peer group.
4. Where there are behavioural difficulties these are generally responsive to adult direction and do not require constant 1-1 support or frequent adult physical intervention.
5. Where there are social and emotional difficulties including anxiety there is the ability to function socially in a group for part of the school day.
6. Where there are sensory difficulties these do not require significant modifications to the educational environment. and in addition: Pupils should be assessed as being able to benefit from a small group setting within the context of a mainstream school, being able to engage with the learning environment and respond to the classroom routines. It is an expectation that a percentage of curriculum time will be spent in mainstream classes with support, post transition. Ideally this will increase to at least 50% by the end of Year 6.
Pupils will be monitored via the annual review and could leave the ELP if they are:
a) Able to participate successfully in mainstream classes for over 80% of his/ her time with appropriate support
b) Unable to access the mainstream setting and/or their rate of progress is compromised.
