Special Educational Needs 08

How will we measure the progress of your child in school?

 

  • Your child’s progress will be continually monitored by his/her class teacher.
  • His/her progress will be reviewed formally with the Headteacher and SENCo every term in reading, writing and maths.
  •  If your child is in Reception or above, a more sensitive assessment tool can be used, which shows their attainment in more detail – breaking learning down into smaller steps (PIVATS – Performance Indicators for Value Added Target Setting).
  • At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of year 2 and year 6), all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). This is something the government requires all schools to do and are the results that are published nationally.
  • The progress of children with a EHC Plan will be formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.
  • The SENCo will also check that your child is making good progress within any individual work and in any group that they take part in by reviewing the progress against their IEP targets termly.
  • Regular book scrutinies and lesson observations will be carried out by the SENCo and other members of the Senior Management Team to ensure that the needs of all children are met and that the quality of teaching and learning is high.
