Stages of Intervention

The framework is summarized as follows:

Universal
Learners and their teachers can receive additional support from colleagues, support staff and promoted staff. This is described as universal provision, i.e. provision which is available for almost all children.

Additional
Learners and their teachers can receive advice with planning and additional support from within their own school’s resources and Educational Psychology.

Extended
Learners and their teachers can have additional support from within Fife Education and Learning Directorate. This may include additional support from Educational Psychologists and advice and consultation from Education Support staff, e.g. CLD and FaCST. Planning to meet the needs of a child receiving support at Extended Level should be recorded within an Integrated Support Plan.

Enhanced
Learners can receive a range of support from within the school as well as support from beyond the school. This multi-agency input may include support from social work, health or voluntary agencies. Planning to meet the needs of the child should be recorded within a Child’s Plan and may require a Co-ordinated Support plan (CSP).

Specialist
Multi-Agency input can include direct intervention from specific services and/or voluntary agencies. Planning to meet the needs of the child should be recorded within a Child’s Plan and may require a CSP.
