Wave 3 is a part of the Primary Strategy model of effective provision in schools for literacy and mathematics.
There are three ‘waves’ of intervention to ensure that all children have their needs met:
Wave 1 - The effective inclusion of all children in a daily and high quality literacy hour and daily mathematics lesson;
Wave 2 - Additional small-group intervention for children who can be expected to catch-up with their peers as a result of the intervention;
Wave 3 - Specific targeted approaches for children identified as requiring SEN support (on School Action, School Action Plus or with a Statement of special educational needs).
Where effective provision is in place at Wave 1 and 2, it reduces the overall requirement for Wave 3 support.
It is also easier to identify which children will require more focused Wave 3 intervention.
