HOW WILL WE MEASURE THE PROGRESS OF YOUR CHILD IN SCHOOL?
Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher. His/her progress is reviewed formally every term and a National Curriculum level given in reading, writing and numeracy. If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet at National Curriculum levels, a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will also show smaller but significant steps of progress. The levels are called ‘P levels’.
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.
Children on SEN support will have an IEP which will be reviewed with your involvement, every term and the plan for the next term made. You child’s academic levels and targets will be discussed at this meeting and the SEN provision in place to help your child achieve his/her targets.
The progress of children with a statement of SEND/ EHC Plan is 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.
