How will we measure the progress of your child in school?

  • Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher; this happens informally in every lesson and formally through pupil progress meetings every half term.
  • If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet at National Curriculum level, 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 assessment levels are called ‘P levels’.
  • At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of Year 2 and Year 6) 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 that are published nationally.
  • Children receiving SEND Support will have an SEND Support Plan which will be reviewed with your involvement every term and the plan for the next term made.
  • The progress of children with an EHCP is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with parents/carers and all of the professionals involved in the child’s education every year.
  • The SENDCo will check that your child is making good progress within any individual work and in any group through regular observations and tracking exercises.
  • All of this information is used by us to regularly evaluate the effectiveness  of the provision made for children with special educational needs
