What is a School Support Plan (SSP)?

An SSP is a School Support Plan that is written by the class teacher in conjunction with the parent and child. It is focused on the Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycle. The SSP records the additional provision and interventions that will be required to help reduce/manage the barriers to your child’s learning. Children who have an SSP are aware of their learning outcomes and are encouraged to reflect on the progress they feel they have made. Contributions from parents and children towards new outcomes are greatly encouraged, parents and their children are invited to school termly to discuss and review SSPs. The short term outcomes are set termly and are designed to work towards and build up to the long term outcome for that child. The long term outcome could be set over a year or even a key stage.
