How does the school measure the progress of children 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 or SENCo every term in personal social health education , reading, writing and numeracy or the Early Learning Goals
- 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.
- Where necessary, children will have an IEP based on the National Curriculum or based on targets set by outside agencies specific to their needs. Targets will be set using national curriculum progression grids designed to accelerate learning and close the gap. Progress against these targets will be reviewed regularly, evidence for judgements assessed and a future plan made.
- The progress of children with a statement of SEN/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.
- Regular book checks 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.
