SEN Report – 9

Question 9

Question: How will my child’s progress be measured in school?

• Your child’s progress will be continually monitored by his/her class teacher.
• His/her progress will be reviewed formally with the SENCo and Senior Leadership Team every term in reading, writing and numeracy.
• 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 the results are published nationally.
• Where necessary, children will have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) based on specific targets which will outline teaching strategies which will better enable teachers to meet their individual needs, outside agencies will also contribute to a child’s IEP when appropriate e.g. Speech and Language Service. Progress against these targets will be reviewed regularly, evidence for judgments assessed and a future plan made. This is done 3 times a year at Individual Education Plan meetings in October, February and June.
• The progress of children with a statement/EHC Plan of SEND will be formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.
• Regular book scrutinies and lesson observations will be carried out by the SENCo and other members of the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that the needs of all children are met and that the quality of teaching and learning is high.
