9. How will the school measure the progress of my child?
- Your child’s progress will be continually monitored by his/her class teacher.
- His/her progress will be reviewed formally with the Headteacher/SENCo every term in reading, writing and Mathematics.
- At the end of the key stage (i.e. at the end of 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.
- Pupils working at pre-key stage standards will be assessed at the end of Year 6 using the SSSEN pre-key stage small steps supporting document.
- Where necessary, children will have an IEP based on small steps or based on targets set by outside agencies specific to their needs. Relevant targets will be set and are 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 an EHC Plan will be formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.
- Regular 'book looks' 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.
- Where children are receiving support through either Nurture or Positive Play, their key worker will carry out an assessment called a Boxall Profile. This enables us to ensure we are working on the right areas to help your child overcome any barriers to learning.
