How will we measure the progress of your child in school?
- Your child’s progress will be continually monitored by his/her class teacher
- Class teachers have 2 pupil progress review meetings a term. One with the Head Teacher in which progress of the whole class in Reading, Writing and Maths is analysed and discussed; the second with the SENCo which focuses on the progress of pupils on the SEND Register and during which the class teacher can also raise any other pupil causing concern
- For children in Year 1 or above and who are working below National Curriculum expectations, a more sensitive assessment tool (B Squared) is used which breaks their learning down into smaller steps.
- For pupils with an Individual Education/Behaviour Plan (IEP/IBP) or an EHCP, a 30-45 minute meeting is arranged each term with the SENCo, the child’s class teacher, relevant support staff and the child’s parents/carers to review progress. Prior to the review, the child’s views are obtained and they will also have assessed their own progress towards their targets
- For all children with an EHCP, a Statutory Annual Review will take place with all relevant professionals involved with the child to review their progress, needs and determine whether the current level of support they are receiving is appropriate and adequate. The decision will also be made as to whether the child continues to need a Statement or EHCP
- The SENCo will also check the progress your child is making through lesson observations (class and small group) and via the Class Provision Map
- Regular book scrutiny and lesson observations are carried out by members of the Senior Leadership Team and subject coordinators to ensure that the needs of all children are met and the quality of teaching and learning is high
- Other more specialised and specifically focussed assessments may be used on occasion, to provide more detailed information about a child’s needs/developmental level which then helps to determine more finely tuned targets and outcomes.
