Assessment occurs on a daily basis throughout all activities so as to inform future planning and to map progress. This is known as Assessment for Learning and is a formative method of gathering evidence through videos, photos, and observation. This information is then used termly to inform the summative assessments on b-squared, thereby allowing us to collect detailed data on pupil progress. This will then be compared to national data through a system called CASPA. Twice yearly meetings are held by the Senior Leadership Team to monitor pupil progress.
Annually, teachers, therapists, parents and where appropriate pupils and anyone else involved with each pupil, will meet to review the EHC Plan. At this meeting the long and short term outcomes will be reviewed and new ones set for the forthcoming year. These will then be reflected in the personalised learning plans.
Long term outcomes are decided for the end of the next key stage.
In addition, parents are provided with an End of Year Annual Report of their child’s progress and attainment in all subject areas, including reports from therapists.
Parents are invited to Open Evenings in the Autumn and Spring Terms where they have an opportunity to meet and discuss progress with the class teacher and therapists.
The class teacher, in consultation with parents, therapists, external professionals where appropriate, and pupils develops each PLP. This is reviewed and updated termly.
Our staff are always happy to meet with parents and carers to discuss your child’s progress. Appointments can be made through the school office.
