I am currently the whole school lead on tracking data. We have found that with around 10 EHCP students and 30 SEN Support students in a year group of around 200, one student can greatly skew the results for the group (both percentage achieving a certain threshold or progress 8). Two students who underachieved or missed their final exams can make a large difference to progress 8 results.
As a school we wanted to ensure that our interventions had clear entry and exit points so that small step progress could be tracked, interventions could be high quality and judgements could be made around which interventions were most successful. In this way, we could spend more time doing what worked, adapting any interventions that showed poor outcomes for children. We did this through the use of the Intervention Tracker Sheet.
Blank support plan that has tick boxes for speed and encourages teachers to use recommendations from reports as the overall target.
These targets are linked to what you enter in the pupil passport.
The passport is displayed where support staff know what the focus and how to approach that specific child.
This page brings together the various audit tools we have put together so far:
CCG Audit Tool
This tool will help CCGs to measure their progress in implementing the 2014 Children and Families Act reforms in relation to disabled children and young people and those with SEN.
Local Authority Audit Tool
Like the CCG Audit Tool, the Local Authority Audit Tool pulls together in one place the key pieces of evidence of which local authorities will wish to assure themselves.
We have developed a tool for tracking progress in life and social skills, which has helped us focus on those skills needed by pupils in an SLD/PMLD, especially when they leave school. As a result we have seen pupils able to do more for themselves
The National Autistic Society (NAS) library catalogue is a specialist database of autism related material, much of which is held in the NAS library. It lists books, journal and magazine articles, DVDs and other material about or related to autism. Anyone can search it online.
We are an 11-19 special school for children with learning difficulties and associated needs. We wanted to move away from IEPs and attainment based targets (although these are still set elsewhere) towards measuring outcomes for our students based around the skills that we are trying to develop in them.
This guidance document was produced to help pastoral teachers to construct outcomes using the SMART model.
The SLCF is a free online CPD tool from The Communication Trust, which sets out the skills and knowledge the workforce needs to support children and young people’s speech, language and communication. Individuals and groups can use the SLCF to evaluate their skills and highlight their learning needs, with tailored training and resource suggestions to support development.
A research project conducted by a literacy leader in KS3, to investigate what impact interventions based on reading for pleasure (STAR and Accelerated Reader) have on the self-perception and reading ability of students. Results indicate some positive outcomes.
Transition to secondary school can be an exciting and worrying time for many parents and young people. However, by working with the school there are many practical things you can do to support your daughter/son.
